While New York City is composed of islands and intersected with rivers and marine throughways within every borough, city dwellers rarely embrace any aquatic entertainment within their own backyards. ONE°15, a new marina within the Brooklyn Bridge Park public waterfront, opened this month on the banks of Brooklyn Heights and aims to remind New Yorkers of an overlooked benefit of living within a coastal city. The marina is the first of its kind to open in New York City in more than 50 years.
Construction has topped out at 41 Blue Slip, the second building to rise in the Greenpoint Landing master plan. The reinforced concrete structure now stands 40 stories above the waterfront development. Handel Architects is the designer while Park Tower Group and Brookfield Property Partners are its developers. L+M Development Partners is the third developer of the mega project, but was not involved with this building. The project stands to the south of 37 Blue Slip, the first building to be erected at the Greenpoint, Brooklyn construction site. The glass and metal façade is steadily rising on all sides.
