Details have been released on a new residential project designed by ODA Architecture at Brooklyn Bridge Park in New York. Occupying two waterfront sites in the Pier 6 uplands development area, the project will include two10,000-square-foot buildings focused on affordable housing, community development and preserving the surrounding parkland.

"Planned since 2005, Pier 6 development site is permitted under the Park’s General Project Plan (GPP) for residential development with a maximum height of 315 feet on Parcel A, while Parcel B allows for residential, ground floor retail, and a maximum height of 155 feet. Under the terms of the lease, the proposed building on Parcel A would be reduced in height by approximately 30 feet, offer 3,870 square feet of retail space, approximately 192 market-rate condominium units, a resident parking garage and public restrooms adjacent to the park," said ODA in a press release.

"The building on Parcel B would also be reduced by approximately 30 feet and include space for a 75-seat universal pre-K facility, 930-square feet of retail space, 1,500-square feet in community facility space, and a mix of approximately 117 affordable- and 30 market-rate rental units. Ultimately, more than 30% of the overall units within the proposed project would be dedicated to permanently affordable housing for moderate and middle income households, while the education facility would help meet the high demand for pre-K seats in the surrounding community. In addition, potential upgrades made to the adjacent Pier 5/6 Loop Road would result in the addition of 10,000 square feet of parkland."
