The proposed designs are in for the towers at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 6. We’ve posted the full presentation below. For the most part we will reserve comment and let our readers weigh in on each one.
However one image included in the pitch from Alloy Design + Bjarke Ingles Group had us blurt out a very loud WTF (and not the abbreviation).
Some designs for the development play off the park’s location near Dumbo with industrial touches. Others look more like Midtown office towers. Some add flourishes of foliage to anchor the buildings to the park.
A number of developers are proposing to provide amenities, such as additional public restrooms, a swimming pool, space for a prekindergarten and a spot for bike repairs.
The proposals for two towers—of about 31 stories and 15 stories—are expected to be discussed Wednesday afternoon at a meeting of the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corp., which runs the park.
Park officials said they were hopeful the quality of the proposals would help refocus the community conversation from a testy debate over the de Blasio administration’s requirement that developers dedicate at least 30% to affordable housing.
