Bushwick Inlet Park transforms the Brooklyn waterfront from a brownfield industrial strip into a public park. Located in the Williamsburg, Brooklyn, this is the first step of an ambitious waterfront redevelopment along the East River. The program integrates athletic fields, community facility and a NYC Park maintenance and operation facility into a 6.2-acre park. The park wraps up over the building on the west as a green hill that makes 100% of the site accessible to the public. A zigzag path provides ADA access to the top, where a large wood-framed PV canopy provides shade and views over the play fields to the Manhattan skyline.
