Pennrose, Duvernay + Brooks and Blue Sea Development have begun construction on a new 0.75 acre park at Prospect Plaza, a new mixed use, 364 unit affordable housing redevelopment project in the Ocean Hill-Brownsville neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY.
The park is part of a partnership with the New York City Housing Authority, NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development, and the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation.
Once complete, the Park will be turned over to the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation for long-term ownership and maintenance as a public park.
The public open and recreational space amenity is part of the New York City Housing Authority’s’ (NYCHA) $200 million Prospect Plaza Redevelopment Plan, which includes affordable rental apartments, retail space and community and recreational facilities.
The Park is being constructed in large part with a grant provided to the overall Prospect Plaza Redevelopment by the office of the Brooklyn Borough President.
Designed by Weintraub Diaz Landscape Architects, The Park will include a toddler play area, a 5-12 year old play area with a water feature, seating alcoves, basketball court, lawn space and game tables. The Park is slated to be completed in early 2019.
The project architect and developer participated with the NYC Department of Parks in the design process.
