The purpose of the project is to determine the feasibility of developing the “Admirals Row” site at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York. The development purpose is to create jobs and improve the economic situation of the community surrounding the Navy Yard through a mutually beneficial partnership between the developer, BNYDC and the community.
Our concept shows successful integration of all BNYDC requirements throughout the project by incorporating environmental, historical and contemporary sustainable designs while providing the essential supermarket, retail and commercial spaces. Our concept creates an innovative project, which will provide emerging and renewed life for the community around the Brooklyn Navy Yard for several years. The main theme of the complex which is portrayed within each building design is the creative and successful mix of historical and contemporary design. This includes extensive outdoor landscaping and water features; offering an outdoor experience unique to the BNYDC site. Our goal is aimed at creating a successful destination place to visit, relax, shop, perform errands and a safe place for kids to play. The green and historical facade which draws attention to motorists, invites curiosity and draws them into the green space rather than drawing their attention away from the retail space. Extensive outdoor landscaping and water features offer an outdoor experience unique to BNYDC site. The project challenges previous philosophies of development dependent on car usage and, instead, develops an urban network that is, first and foremost, designed and is responsive to the needs of people. Short walking distances and access to public transportation will mean it is possible to create new opportunities for living and working in a human friendly, safe environment and a more sustainable typology for future developments in the surrounding neighborhoods. The project envisages the separation of cars by the providing a central pedestrian plaza accessible throughout the network. The plaza level will have in its heart a monumental square flanked by the supermarket, retail, office spaces, food & beverage outlets and it will be connected by pedestrian spines to the parking lot.
