Project profile: Bushwick Inlet Park
The Bushwick Inlet Park transforms the Brooklyn waterfront from a brownfield industrial strip into a public park. Located in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, the design is the first step of an ambitious waterfront redevelopment along the East River. The design team has integrated a program of athletic fields, community facility and a NYC Park maintenance and operation facility into a 6.2-acre park. The Park wraps over the building on the west side, turning the building into a green hill so that 100% of the site is accessible to the public.
