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.

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.
Ground has recently been broken to transform Pier 3, located within Brooklyn Bridge Park in Brooklyn Heights, into a functional park. Pier 3 represents the last portion of the Brooklyn Bridge Park project. It will feature a large lawn, a playground, walking paths, vegetation, and a plaza, according to a rendering released by Curbed NY. This portion of Brooklyn Bridge Park is estimated to cost $26 million and is scheduled to be completed in 2018. Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates is the landscape architect.
In June 2015, then-Brooklyn Bridge Park President Regina Myer revealed renderings for the last two residential towers set to rise in the park, on Pier 6. Now, ODA Architecture, which is designing them, has filed plans for the pair of developments at 15 and 50 Bridge Park Drive.
