MNLA is designing new public open space as part of the 615 and 595 Dean Street mixed-income development in Brooklyn's Pacific Park. A variety of active and passive uses have been developed as community amenities.
The western side of the site will be a family-friendly zone with a playground for children of all ages, as well as small gathering spaces, a picnic grove, and dog run. An eastern plaza will provide a semi-programmed space including a fountain that will be activated in the summer. The open space will be anchored by a central expansive lawn surrounded by walkways and a variety of plantings. The pathway along the edge of the lawn will lead to a lush, inviting shaded woodland garden ideal for a short stroll or a space to relax.
The project is currently in Construction Documentation and is expected to open to the public in 2023.
