Our proposal focuses on the transformation of a major portion of Red Hook’s waterfront. Currently private and inaccessible to the public, Red Hook Piers will comprise a richly programmed, mixed-use extension to Red Hook’s essential manufacturing and arts-based community.

ReHoP consists of many a new manufacturing center with point-of-sale outlets for companies engaged in the design and manufacture of furniture, fashion and food; a marine education institute that physically engages and utilizes the Atlantic Basin through its curriculum; a hotel and related services that will support the tech community currently being planned to the south; and a mile-long series of interconnected public open spaces that extends the Brooklyn Greenway, creates elevated park spaces with amplified views of the Harbor, and mitigates a large portion of the neighborhood’s flood exposure through the implementation of a series of biological and constructed strategies.
