Recently released renderings from Starling Architecture reveal a forthcoming venue space at Fulton Ferry Landing Pier in DUMBO. The proposed site is located within Brooklyn Bridge Park and would be the second new concession on the pier.
The Fulton Ferry Landing Pier dates back to 1642 and facilitated the first ferry service between Brooklyn and Manhattan. In the mid-90s, the pier was temporarily closed, refurbished, and reopened in 1997.
Given the proposed venue’s location within the historic district, Starling Architecture will need to secure approvals from the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Should the commission approve, the locale is expected to be fully operational by the summer of 2019.
The new, single-story venue would connect to an existing shed that once housed fire hoses used by the Marine Fire Station, a structure still located on the pier today. The existing hose shed would be refurbished where needed, repainted in its original colors, and receive updated roof shingles. The façade features 11-foot-tall hydraulic doors that can swing open to create an open-air experience during warmer weather. Within, the architects have designed a stylish bar and dining establishment with a full kitchen and restroom facilities.
