Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 4 design

The Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation has released plans for Pier 4, one of six piers along Brooklyn’s northern waterfront that will be incorporated into the in-development Brooklyn Bridge Park.  The Pier 4 site, like the rest of the 85-acre park, has been designed by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc. The plan includes reclaiming part of the deteriorated railroad infrastructure currently occupying the Pier 4 site as a public walkway, and another part as an island wildlife sanctuary.  The project is slated for construction in summer 2012 and is expected to be complete the next year.

Pier 1 was expected to open by the beginning of 2010 but is now anticipated later in the year, along with Pier 6.  Much of the rest of the park’s development still awaits funding.
