Arts and EntertainmentThe new drawings for the NYC Freedom Plaza project were released.

Gambling, skyscrapers and museums are similar to Manhattan. Bjarke Ingels Group released new sketches of the proposed Freedom Plaza project in New York City's Midtown on Monday, featuring a "Musuem of Freedom and Democracy." The centerpiece of the project is a pair of skyscrapers that are connected by a skybridge. The Freedom Plaza project is intended to connect to the United Nations building according to Bjarke Ingels. Ingels said in a statement that they continue to build on these architectural principles by unifying three city blocks to form a public green space reaching from 1st Avenue to the East River overlook. Casino approval is important for affordable housing.

The developer of the affordable housing tied the approval of the gambling license to the approval of the Freedom Plaza project. The Manhattan Community Board 6 voted to reject any proposal for the site that included a casino in 2022. The revenue generated by the project's entertainment and hospitality component will allow Freedom Plaza to deliver the affordable housing program and expansive publicly accessible green space, with many more details yet to be announced.
