Brooklyn Navy Yard Pier D Available for Maritime Uses

The Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation seeks Expressions of Interest from entities interested in leasing and redeveloping Pier D in the Brooklyn Navy Yard for maritime uses.

BNYDC envisions that the selected tenant for Pier D will have the unique opportunity to leverage public funds toward rebuilding and fitting out the pier to support maritime operations on the city’s waterfront within the thriving manufacturing ecosystem of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The City has allocated capital funds intended to be used for design and construction of a new pier suited to the selected tenant’s needs. In anticipation of this partnership, BNYDC will handle permitting and approvals for demolition of the existing pier and stabilization of its bulkhead so that the site is turned over ready for new construction.

BNYDC seeks expressions of interest that align with its vision for Pier D, which has four principal aspects:

• Reconstruction for maritime use
• Job creation through construction and operation of the pier
• Resilience to storm surges, floods, and other aspects of climate change
• The ability for the tenant to oversee construction. Although BNYDC may be open to other arrangements
