Meatpacking Tactical Materials Catalog

In 2022 Street Plans was hired by Meatpacking District Management Association, a New York City business improvement district, to advance the organization’s ambitious public realm goals using Tactical Urbanism.

The first project to come out of this exciting collaboration is the Tactical Materials Catalog, a detailed guide that calibrates 120 streetscape materials and products to three distinct Tactical project types: demonstration, pilot, and interim design. Each material and/or product was vetted and chosen for its ability to fit sensitively within the District’s unique and historic setting.

Moving forward, Street Plans will continue to assist the Meatpacking District team with public realm interventions that make use of the Materials Catalog, with a particular focus on projects identified in the organization’s Western Gateway Plan
