Gowanus Canal Park is a public open space being developed as part of the residential building complex located at 363-365 Bond Street in Brooklyn, NY. The public portion of the project consists of a streetscape connection to the waterfrontpark and esplanade. The streetscape connection to the surrounding neighborhood features sidewalk plantings that incorporate bioswales as part of an overall storm water management strategy. The waterfront park features various types of seating, distinctive paving, an esplanade along the Gowanus Canal’s edge and floating docks for boat launching. As a public open space, the completed park was reviewed and approved by the NYC Parks Department as meeting their standards. Because of its proximity to a body of water and intertidal wetlands, the project required approval and permits from both the NYS DEC and the NYC DEP along with strategies to keep unfiltered stormwater from flowing into the Canal.
