Construction is now underway on a new section of waterfront green space and a condo development in Dumbo.

According to Brownstoner, fencing is up at John Street, where Brooklyn Bridge Park will be constructing the green space and the buildings. A one-story garage in the park at 121 Plymouth Street will be demolished, and a 1,700-square-foot park facility with restrooms, community meeting space and an environmental education center will be constructed.

The vacant lot at 1 John Street, which ultimately will be the location of a 42-unit condo building, is currently a “temporary living earthwork,” which will become part of the rest of the park by the summer.

The John Street park will feature pedestrian bridges over a tidal salt marsh, a 13,000-square-foot gathering lawn, and a wall at the Main Street entrance, according to Brownstoner. [Brownstoner] – Claire Moses
