Over 150 teams submitted proposals to make the NY / NJ region more resilient, ten finalists were selected and the winning six designs were announced yesterday by HUD Secretary Sean Donovan.

Congrats to all the winners, there are some terrific, very forward-thinking designs in there. We have to admit we are a little disappointed that nothing along the Jersey Shore was selected. Story on NJ.com by Erin O’Neill of the Star Ledger
