DETAILS

LocationBrooklyn, New York, United States
ClientGreenland Forest City Partners
Size22 acres

Description: Pacific Park is a major mixed-use development in the Atlantic Terminal area of Brooklyn, New York. When complete, it will occupy approximately 22 acres, including the air rights above the approximately nine-acre, below-grade Long Island Rail Road Storage Yard.

The open space, with an area of about eight acres at grade, is being designed by Thomas Balsley Associates and will be bounded by the residential buildings along the perimeter. Much of the open space will be on top of a “platform” that will cover the rail yard below or on top of below-grade spaces of the buildings.

The landscape will be a cohesive, continuous, and inviting open space with a range of uses and activities, with links from north to south connecting the new development and the surrounding neighborhoods by continuing the existing street system as pedestrian corridors into the open space. The open space will be sheltered from Atlantic Avenue traffic while promoting public access and use. The landscape design will take into account the costs of both construction and future maintenance, a phased implementation strategy with temporary conditions, and a vision for the Pacific Street Terminus – the plaza between buildings B3 and B4.
