BUSHWICK INLET PARK, MOTIVA PARCEL
The ABB team is remediating a post-industrial brownfield site at Bushwick Inlet known as the Motiva parcel. The completed project will contribute a link that will serve as a centerpiece in the development of a continuous Bushwick Inlet Park along the Greenpoint-Williamsburg waterfront.
The design of the Motiva Parcel will be a passive linear park with a waterfront esplanade that wraps around a portion of Bushwick Inlet. Once the site is remediated, a series of productive upland and aquatic ecologies will be restored. The site program is currently being developed based on community feedback. The project’s focus is on environmental remediation, stabilizing, and naturalizing the waterfront edges to allow for passive recreation in the upland areas, and wildlife habitat restoration throughout the site.
