For those hoping to avoid another molten-hot-metal-dome-playground-equipment fiasco in Brooklyn, the New York City Economic Development Corporation is soliciting pitches for the development of Willoughby Square Park, a 46,000-square-foot public space in Downtown Brooklyn. The EDC, along with the park’s designer, Hargreaves Associates, is hosting a workshop this Wednesday at Long Island University to glean input on how the park should be configured. While the city secured the land in January of last year for nearly $40 million, according to Brownstoner, it’s not immediately clear when the project will be completed.
