Housing’s recent past and present in Harlem and Manhattanville

Fri, Sep 25, 2020    1pm

Conversation with Edwin C. Marshall, Senior Manager, Land Use Division, New York City Department of City Planning Discussion facilitated by Joe Huennekens, PhD Candidate at GSAPP and project assistant at the Housing Lab

At the Department of City Planning, Edwin Marshall has worked as a Senior Manager, Planner, Project Manager and Team Leader in the Land Use Review Division, Manhattan and Brooklyn Borough offices since 1986. His land use review and project management portfolio include several large-scale, mixed-use development projects, zoning map, zoning text and City map amendments, and other land use approvals for both city and privately sponsored matters. Throughout his career, Edwin has worked to renew and rebuild New York City neighborhoods, such as Bedford-Stuyvesant and Harlem, through comprehensive planning initiatives and the development of affordable housing. Signature projects include the Bradhurst and Saratoga Square Urban Renewal plans; the Frederick Douglass Boulevard Rezoning; the 125th Corridor Rezoning and Special District Plan; the East River Plaza Retail Project; the Muscota Marsh Waterfront Public Access Area Plan and the Columbia University campus expansion project in Manhattanville. Edwin was a planning liaison for several community boards and received awards for his planning and project management work. Since 2019, he has worked as an instructor for the Land Use Academy and Planning Essentials training programs, which train new and tenured City Planning employees on agency history, policy and protocols. A native New Yorker, in his spare time he frequently travels to Woodstock, New York with his wife Sharon (a City Planning alumna). He enjoys exploring the Catskills, long-haul travel and aspires to resume playing the trumpet (as a comeback player), which he played for 12 years.

Joe Huennekens is a project assistant at the GSAPP Housing Lab and a PhD candidate in urban planning with research interests in changing suburbs, land use conflict, exclusionary zoning, and planning practice. In his doctoral research, he hopes to investigate how nonnormative suburban groups navigate land use regulatory bodies to shape the built environment. Prior to coming to Columbia GSAPP, Joe worked as a borough planner for the NYC Department of City Planning and a program manager at the Design Trust for Public Space. He holds a B.S in Architecture from the University of Virginia and a Masters in City Planning from the University of Pennsylvania.
