Plans to bring a 21-acre greenway to Downtown Brooklyn are moving forward. The Community Vision Plan released new recommendations for what is being called the Brooklyn Strand. They also released new renderings.

The plan calls for a green space, the reopening of the Brooklyn War Memorial to the public, a new platform and pedestrian path surrounding the entrance and exit ramps to the Brooklyn Bridge, a permanent market at Anchorage Plaza near where the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and bridge overlap, improved connections for NYCHA residents to Brooklyn Bridge Park and installing public art along the Strand, according to Curbed.

“This was truly a herculean effort and the resulting vision reflects the thoughtfulness and deep commitment of our community to this endeavor,” Tucker Reed, the president of the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership said in a statement. “The Brooklyn Strand is a vital component of the area’s growth, not only by building better connections for its residents, but through the creation of much needed public space and neighborhood amenities befitting our beloved borough.”
