WATERFRONT DEVELOPMENTS Community watersports in the heart of NY City Boating in New York Harbor is set to be more accessible than ever when a stylish new boating facility opens later this year. One°15 Brooklyn Marina will directly connect Brooklyn to the water and provide opportunities for people of all ages, incomes and abilities to enjoy time afloat. Located within the heart of Brooklyn’s resurgent waterfront between Piers 4 and 5, the marina will be part of the award winning Brooklyn Bridge Park, an expanse of lush green community space on the Brooklyn side of the East River in New York City. It will enjoy stunning views of the Manhattan skyline. The project includes 125 slips ranging from 40ft (12m) to 100ft (30.5m) on a floating Poralu dock system protected by a Marinetek floating wave attenuator that also provides alongside mooring for superyachts up to 250ft (76m) will also be provided. A sailing club and Harbor Club will provide first class amenities for tenants. The marina also incorporates a wide range of sustainable technologies to make it one of the ‘greenest’ marinas in the world: solar panels are to provide energy for club facilities; specially textured concrete panels used to create habitat; and floating wetlands added to boost the health of local ecosystems.

Photo: Philippe Lemay, Poralu Marine Community access One°15 Brooklyn Marina takes just a small sliver of the 85 acres (34.3ha) of reclaimed land that now forms the park. It is anticipated, however, to become one of the revenue generators that will maintain the whole site and also boost community facilities. “We won the contract because the mission was to give water access to the community – and that mission is also our mission. A huge public dock takes up 40% of the total dock space, the aim of which is to encourage young people to take up boating,” Greg Weykamp, principal of Edgewater Resources tells Marina World. Edgewater, in partnership with SUTL Group/One°15 Marina of Singapore, is the design consultant and developer with a 30 year concession. One°15 is heavily involved in all aspects of the project but with emphasis on the future Harbor Club operations. The marina will incorporate One°15 branding. Two per cent of the marina’s revenues will be contributed to supporting free and low cost community boating, as well as providing a worldclass community dock facility around which these programmes can thrive. Various community partners will share the slip space, which will include: • A large fleet of centrally owned, high quality, professionally maintained cutting edge sailboats. • A recreational sailing club tailored to New York Harbor and Brooklyn Bridge Park which can be accessed by members of the public at reasonable cost. • Spaces for kayaks and kayaking instruction, including a protected beginner basin. • Small boat sailing programmes in a protected basin for children to learn to sail. • Access for existing community and non-profit boating programmes to New York Harbor. • A top quality sailing school with world class instruction and curriculum design. • Potential for other clubs, such as fishing or motor boating clubs, in the future. - September/October 2015 19
