A project in the US that has been likened to a “sea floor” has been described as an engineering masterpiece.
The engineering firm responsible for the design of a new structure in New York City said it would help solve some of the biggest problems facing the city’s inner city, as well as the problems facing many of the other major cities around the country.
“We think this is the most important project of its kind in our history,” John Azzopardi, CEO of the firm Marine Engineers Inc, told ABC News.
“This will be a sea floor.
It will not be an asphalt floor,” he added.
The firm, which has designed and constructed buildings in New Orleans, Chicago, Philadelphia, Philadelphia and the Philippines, will build the building using a combination of wood, concrete, metal and other materials to achieve the design, the firm said.
It’s a project that will provide affordable housing, housing options and an area for social and recreational activities.
The project, which will also be used for schools, schools, churches and other institutions, will help to create a community and allow people to work, live and learn, the company said in a press release.
Azzopardo said that while many of New York’s problems can be solved by simply building a building with more parking, there are more pressing issues that need to be addressed.
“In many areas of New America, we’ve had housing and school affordability issues, but we haven’t had social, recreational, and educational problems,” he said.
“That needs to change.”
The company said that the $1 billion project will create 300,000 new housing units and about 3,000 jobs.
It also aims to help alleviate congestion and traffic, with a goal of making New York the “world’s most bike- and pedestrian-friendly city”.
The company has built three similar structures in the past and has built another in the United Kingdom.
The company is also working with other countries, including the US and Canada, to develop solutions to the housing and social issues.
“The city of New Orleans is a city of great opportunity, but it is also a city that has suffered from a very significant and persistent shortage of housing, which is why we’re doing this,” Azzogni said.
“If you think about the city of Houston and how the city has experienced significant homelessness over the last 20 years, and how it has also been the site of a huge number of displacement, it is no surprise that there are problems here.”ABC/wires
