Cities are desirable.

Manhattan has a high population density because there are few places like it. Homes in centrally located walkable cities come with a premium price tag. Most people move to the suburbs because they cannot afford living in the cities. Since it is not possible to build more affordable housing units in Manhattan, alternatives are to build more dense urban places nearby (such as Long Island) that can compete on the same environment and amenities.

Project:  100% Content aims to provide a stronger connection between Manhattan and Long Island.

Site

A thin slice of 85% vacant sites will offer tremendous potentials to restructure community life in a bold way. A plot of 1085m x 140m between Main Street and Franklin Street in Hempstead city centre is identified as a testing laboratory for project: 100% Content.

1. Hempstead Lab will turn vacant sites as a place achieved by a habitable vertical abstraction that considers spatial identity, cultural diversity, and physical connectivity.

2. Reopening vacant sites into opportunities for all, providing a quality live / work / play environment, extending time within the city will bring 'life' back into city centres in Long Island.

3. Multi-functional living / working / playing ''rooms'', are mixed, alternated, edited and interchanged as required to allow for flexible expansion or growth.

The centre aims to provide ''100% Contentment'', and subsequently it will lead to ''100% happiness'' for its inhabitants.
