Brooklyn Bridge Park

Location: Brooklyn, New York

Along the East River, in the DUMBO neighborhood under the Manhattan Bridge, Sherwood Design Engineers worked with the office of Michael Van Valkenburgh on the implementation of the last two phases of Brooklyn Bridge Park for the Main Street and John Street sites. The restoration of this iconic waterfront is one of the most significant open space projects under way in New York. We completed the design and permitting for the site civil engineering and storm water management improvements. Sherwood collaborated on the waterfront public space design that creates a landscape-based stormwater management system; it minimizes the flow to the city’s combined sewer system and improves water quality in the East River. Additionally, the improvements are a key part of the City’s post-Sandy flood protection network.
