Brooklyn Bridge Park | DEP Conversion Site
Brooklyn Bridge Park is an 85-acre park on the Brooklyn side of the East River in New York City. The park has revitalized a 1.3-mile (2.1 km) stretch of Brooklyn’s post-industrial waterfront.
LERA provided structural engineering services for two adjacent parcels of the park, totaling 37,600 sf. The conversion site included a former NYC DEP water meter testing facility, a DEP parking lot and an NYC DOT paint shed. The renovation entailed the demolition of the paint shed and the conversion of the DEP building into a maintenance and operations facility with public restrooms.
LERA also provided structural engineering services for a new outdoor rock climbing facility located beneath the Manhattan Bridge.
