The Park Promenade will be the park's major north-south unifying element. At 30 feet wide, it will give ample room for pedestrians, joggers and cyclists.

Architects Dream Up BQE Silencer for Brooklyn Bridge Park



Tuesday, April 7, 2009, by Joey


Now that the construction of Brooklyn Bridge Park is humming along, lazy days spent idling riverside are but a few hundreds of millions of dollars away. But what's that rumbling sound interrupting our Ultimate Frisbee fantasies? It's the dastardly BQE, according to the Studio for Civil Architecture and Hage Engineering, but fear not, our heroes have joined forces to come up with an idea for muffling the traffic noise.

http://www.brooklynbridgeconnector.net/
Get a load of the Brooklyn Bridge Connector, a highway-hiding piece of civic art made up of steel arches and translucent sound barrier shells, covered by a solar canopy. The proposal has its own website—complete with sound effects!—and according to its creators, the Brooklyn Bridge Connector is the perfect cure for what will ail the park.

Via the release, we hear from Studio for Civil Architecture principal Donald Rattner:

“There is a practical need to deal with the vehicular noise that emanates from the BQE,” says Rattner who lives a scant three blocks from the much trafficked highway. “Regardless of what is ultimately built on the waterfront – housing, restaurants, ball fields, passive recreation areas – visitors to the open space and surrounding structures will be subject to relentless, unpleasant, potentially deafening noise – at 85 decibels, the equivalent of standing next to an operating lawnmower. But there is also an aesthetic dimension that needs to be addressed. Our proposal seeks to provide a pragmatic solution to the problem and simultaneously to offer those on both sides of the river an attractive piece of public sculpture to appreciate.”

Repairs to this section of the BQE are slated to begin in 2018, so heck, why not? We applaud this vision, but very softly, so as not to create potentially deafening noise.

Reader Responds: No, This is How You Silence a Highway



Wednesday, April 8, 2009, by Joey


A Curbed reader notes yesterday's coverage of the fanciful Brooklyn Bridge Connector—steel arches, translucent shells and a solar canopy meant to quiet the BQE for the sake of the under-construction Brooklyn Bride Park—and fires back:

I read your post about the BQE silencer, and I wanted to let you know that isn't the only silencer dreamed up for Brooklyn Bridge Park. In fact, I've put plenty of work into similar plan. A big difference, I use vegetation and trees to absorb the noise and exhaust for the cars. I also incorporated a bio fuel gas station within the structure.

In breaking down the dual use of the trees, I calculated the air pollution along this stretch of highway and determined how much vegetation the city needs to offset it. I've also done extensive research into placing Bio-Fuel stations around the city. This was all part of a project at Parsons, under Jared Della Valle and Andrew Bernheimer of Della Valle Bernheimer Architects.

More diagrams and images of Silencer II: Attack of the Veggies can be found here. Which noise-canceling proposal gets the edge? We're inclined to say this one, because of the inclusion of that sweet driver's seat rendering. It's like we're already zipping through the Brooklyn of the future!

I think this will be on the magnitude of Central Park, in terms of what it means. Along with the High Line, I think it's one of the more exciting new developments in the city. In a sense, they're both great gifts. Governors Island also has that potential.

Brooklyn Bridge Park Gets Some Trees



May 18, 2009

The first batch of trees—including Honeylocusts, Magnolias, Lindens, Catalpas, Serviceberries, Sweetgums, London Planes, and several species of Oaks—arrived at Brooklyn Bridge Park last week. According to a press release, the trees will temporarily reside on the Pier 3 uplands while they await their final resting grounds at Piers 1 and 6, both of which are scheduled to open by the end of the year

This has been largely overshadowed by the development of the High Line park, but this one has also been moving steadily forward, with two segments planned to open later this year at opposite ends of the park. And it's no less exciting to me...

Brooklyn Bridge Park Slowly Takes Shape

by Dennis Holt
06-12-2009

BROOKLYN — The major development regarding Brooklyn Bridge Park reported in the Eagle on Thursday had to take place sometime, but all attention has been focused on the new stuff going up on Piers 1-6.

So the positive news about the “other” part of Brooklyn Bridge Park surprised a lot of people. In fact, the DUMBO part of the new waterfront park is now officially a part of Brooklyn Bridge Park. Fulton Ferry State Park, a large part of it landfill, is also now Brooklyn Bridge Park. The classic buildings — the Empire Stores and the Tobacco Warehouse — are now in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

All of this came about with the stroke of a few pens in New York and Albany and the promise by the Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation to fork over 99 bucks through 2108 to the State Parks department. Does anyone expect to be around by then?

This non-dramatic transfer of many acres runs counter to all the high drama of almost 30 years in the evolution of Brooklyn Bridge Park, but, again, almost all that drama concerned Piers 1 to 6.

come, more people will look with interest to the east of the Brooklyn Bridge. For one thing, there will be a dramatic new carousel added to that site — Jane’s (as in Walentas) Carousel — to be housed in what is said to be a stunning glass-dominated structure designed by Jean Nouvel. This will become a big draw.

Another element that most people have forgotten is part of the original housing plan for revenue creation. A new residential building was expected to be built near Jay Street. One may still be constructed, but it has been held up because of the economy. Expect construction to begin early next year.

But the big news about development concerns the landmarked Tobacco warehouse and Empire Stores. The latter is a very tough nut to crack because of its internal architecture — vertical support beams dominate the entire space. This restricts planning options.

The park development team will issue a request for proposals, but don’t expect too many responders. For sure, David Walentas will be one: he’s had his eye on the Stores for some time, thinking of arts and culture venues and possibilities. Also for certain will be a rooftop restaurant on the eastern part of the building.

And since the Dock Street project has been approved, St. Ann’s Warehouse will need a new home. All sensible and practical eyes have been focused on the Tobacco Warehouse. If a roof is installed, it will be a logical solution as well as a park revenue raiser.

But there will also be opposition to this because a roofed theater will also be a big draw. People who have opposed almost any development that increases the flow of people will oppose that plan. (One element of the opposition to the Dock Street project that was never mentioned was the 450-car parking garage. The garage will draw people to that part of the new park, and available parking will also draw drivers to Warehouse performances.)

So at a time when two important sections of the park are being built — the two entrances to the pier portions — a major resolution of the DUMBO half of Brooklyn Bridge Park has also taken place.
