Responses to Brooklyn Bridge Park’s requests for proposals (RFP) for a marina and a roller skating concession are due on Monday, November 18.
David McCarty, a project manager with the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation, will be giving an informal public presentation about the proposals on Monday evening at Community Board 2’s Parks and Recreation Committee.
The marina’s RFP calls for the long-term lease, development, and operation of a 186-slips facility adjacent to Pier 5. Developers had to submit plans that are “on par with the investment made on the part of the public sector,” according to the RFP.
The Pier 2 facilities will include more than a skating rink, according to the RFP. Besides operating the rink and renting out skating equipment, the eventual operator would also rent out equipment for shuffleboard, bocce ball, basketball and handball. The Pier 2 concessionaire would be allowed to provide “limited food and beverage options” for customers.
Monday’s presentation takes place at The Brooklyn Hospital Center, 121 DeKalb Avenue in Fort Greene, in Dining Rooms A&B.
