Great Ecology is the ecological consultant for Major League Soccer who is currently in the conceptual design phase of developing a soccer stadium in New York City. The proposed stadium would be located on top of the 6.5-acre Fountain of the Planets in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Created for the 1964 World Fair, this underutilized water feature is currently owned by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. Great Ecology has performed vegetative, hydrological, and ecological assessments to inform the conceptual design of the stadium site and potential parkland replacement sites. The work includes wetland delineation, tree evaluation and survey, hydrological data collection, identification of potential federal regulatory oversight issues, and development of land use permit application materials. The team for this high-profile project includes ICON Venue Group, HR&A Advisors, SHoP Architects, and Langan Engineering. Great Ecology adds its extensive experience in permitting, remediation, mitigation and restoration to this outstanding team.
