A new stretch of Brooklyn Bridge Park, which straddles the mouth of the East River along Brooklyn Heights, will come online later this year. Renderings of the six-acre plot, called Pier 5 Uplands and located between Joralemon and Montague streets, have been revealed at Curbed NY.
The new public park space will feature a 35-foot-tall bern, lawns, new vegetation, a “rain garden,” seated areas, and paved pathways. Along Furman Street, there will be a single-story building constructed for the park’s operations. Another, smaller boathouse structure will be built for with community facility space and restrooms. Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates is the landscape architect and Architecture Research Office (ARO) is responsible for the new buildings.
