Brooklyn Bridge Park

The Firm serves as environmental and litigation counsel to ESD, the Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation, and the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation with respect to development projects adjacent to Piers 1 and 6 of the Brooklyn Bridge Park, which generate critical funding for the operation and maintenance of the Park.  These developments include a hotel, market-rate and affordable residential units, and retail space.  In recent years, we successfully defended two challenges to the height and design of the Pier 1 development.  Litigation over the Pier 6 development is currently pending in New York State Supreme Court, New York County.
