Transmitter Park was one of the first new significant spaces to open along the Greenpoint, Brooklyn, waterfront for the public to enjoy. The park sits on a site that formerly housed the WNYC radio station and a ferry terminal. The design for the park included a recreational pier with pods and connecting bridges, a waterfront promenade, a bridge over a tidal basin, pathways connecting to an adjacent street, a playground and open lawn for relaxation and enjoying the spectacular view of the NYC skyline.
McLaren Engineering Group created a pier design consisting of pods and connecting bridges as an alternative to the conventional pier design. This design provides an unique visual appearance and allows parks users to have a changing experience as they enjoy the water and New York vistas. Working with the landscape designers, McLaren incorporated sustainable water collecting services into the shoreline project. The efforts transformed a prior abandoned property into a premier public space.
