Are you concerned about development in flood zones and coastal resiliency in NYC? Make your voice heard about this latest development project on your waterfront.

Riverkeeper encourages members of the public to submit comments regarding a planned waterfront development at Pier 6 in Brooklyn Bridge Park (BBP). The development is located in a flood zone which flooded during Superstorm Sandy. Please see below for greater detail on the project and submit your comments via mail, email or fax.

Planned since 2005, the 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 settlement reached last month, BBP is seeking a modification to the Park’s GPP in a process encompassing numerous opportunities for public engagement over several months. The Boards of BBPDC and ESD both voted last week to adopt the GPP modification regarding this project. A public hearing on the proposed modifications was held in late July, incorporating this written comment period, followed by two more public meetings.

For more information on the project please visit the citizens group or visit Brooklyn Bride Park’s website.

Written comments will be accepted no later than Monday, Aug. 31 at 5 p.m. They can be submitted by email to [email protected] or faxed to 212-803-3778.

Comments can also be mailed to Ms. Rose-Marie Mahase, Empire State Development, 633 Third Ave., New York, N.Y. 10017.
