New Marina Coming to Brooklyn Bridge Park
Construction is underway on New York’s first new marina in over two decades. ONE° 15 Brooklyn Marina, located between Piers 4 and 5 of Brooklyn Bridge Park, is set to open in the spring of 2016.
In 2013, Brooklyn Bridge Park chose SUTL Group, the Singapore-based marine design and engineering firm responsible for ONE°15 Marina Club Singapore and Edgewater Resources, to design and operate the new Brooklyn Marina.
“Boating and the water have long been passions of mine and I recognized an opportunity in Singapore to bring the water and that lifestyle to a wider audience,” SUTL group chairman Arthur Tay said in a prepared statement. “As we looked to expand the brand into international destinations we identified the perfect opportunity in Brooklyn with the vibrant, lush public spaces of Brooklyn Bridge Park, Manhattan skyline backdrop and open water.”
Featuring four main floating docks, the marina design includes 102 slips that can hold boats from 16’ to 250’ in length. Membership at the dock ranges from $1,000-$2,900 per year. A portion of the space will be open to the public, where sailing and kayaking programs will be made available non-profits groups such as Brooklyn Boatworks, Brooklyn Kayak Guides, New York Harbor School and Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy.
In addition to the community dock, ONE° 15 Brooklyn Marina will feature a members-only “Harbor Club” and a sailing school that will be available to beginners as well as experienced sailors who want to advance their skills.
