Text description provided by the architects.

Poised on riprap overlooking the water, the new boathouse sits along the Pier 5 Uplands of Brooklyn Bridge Park. The one-and-a-half mile long park has transformed the former industrial waterfront into an exemplar of urban landscape design. Providing secure open-air boat storage at grade level, with a multipurpose room and public restrooms on the upper floor, the architecture of the 5,000 sf boathouse is purposeful, economical and resilient.
