Foster + Partners has designed a mammoth, mixed-use complex on the Brooklyn waterfront in Red Hook, with 600,000 square feet (55,700 square meters) of offices and 23,000 square feet (2,100 square meters) of retail space and restaurants. Located on a former industrial site, the buildings will provide flexible open floor plans of up to 100,000 square feet (9,300 square meters). The facility is intended to build on a dramatic growth in technology companies in Brooklyn, creating an office environment that is open and collaborative, reflecting a style that is de rigueur in the tech-sector. The four-story timber-framed buildings will have central courtyards and rooftop terraces, and being surrounded by water on three sides, the location will provide exceptional views of New York Harbor and the Statue of Liberty. A public esplanade surrounding the project will provide the public access to a waterfront location, and will also connect the project to the adjacent Brooklyn Greenway.
