The Pier 6 site at Brooklyn Bridge Park is one of the most prominent locations along the restored waterfront spine of Downtown Brooklyn. This mixed-use development will be the transition between the activity of the waterfront and the historic brownstone districts of Brooklyn Heights and Cobble Hill above. Anchoring the terminus of Atlantic Avenue and providing a visual counterpoint to the rising path of the Brooklyn Queens Expressway, the development will be visible from all directions, marking the southern gateway to the park.
Two buildings are envisioned as part of the development. Building A, on the western parcel, will total 270,800 gross square feet. This building is designed for market-rate units for sale. Amenities available to residents of the building include a fitness center, a lap pool, function rooms, children’s playroom, bicycle and general storage, and parking space for 36 cars on lifts. The building will be 31 stories tall with 134 units, including 26 one-bedroom apartments, 52 two bedrooms, and 52 three bedroom units. At the top of the building, 4 penthouse-townhouse units will take advantage of views. Two four bedroom and two five bedroom units will be available at these levels.
Building B, on the eastern parcel, will total 131,190 gross square feet. This building is designed as permanently affordable units for rent. Amenities available to residents of the building include several function rooms on the 2nd Floor, children’s playroom and teen game room, bicycle and general storage, and parking space for 34 cars on lifts. The building will be 14 stories tall, containing 140 units, including 50 studios, 25 one bedrooms, 26 two bedrooms, and 39 three bedroom units. At the ground floor facing west, a 1200 square foot public restroom facility and park office area will be provided to service activity in Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Due to the development site’s location within the Flood Hazard Zone AE, we have set Building A’s maximum height of 315’ above base plane as determined by FEMA’s BFE plus freeboard. Elevator machine rooms, overruns, mechanical equipment and water tanks are contained in a rooftop bulkhead extending above the maximum height, as allowed per zoning.
