BBP is a not-for-profit corporation, responsible for planning, constructing, maintaining, and operating the Park, an 85-acre sustainable waterfront park stretching 1.3 miles along Brooklyn’s East River shoreline. BBP’s mission is to create and maintain a world-class park as a recreational, environmental, and cultural destination for residents of, and visitors to, New York City.
One of the primary assets of BBP is its proximity to the water. The Park’s location has a long and rich maritime history and part BBP’s mandate is to by honor that history by encouraging education about, and interaction with the water, both visually and physically. The Park already includes several water-dependent recreational uses including a marina, fishing areas, kayak/canoe launches, boating areas, and ferry access. The Park also houses an environmental education center focusing on the maritime environment at 99 Plymouth St and an educational exhibit in Empire Stores dedicated to the history of the Brooklyn industrial waterfront.
The Pier 6 historic vessel docking RFP offers a unique opportunity to provide up to three docking berths to historic vessels adjacent to a vibrant public park. BBP is seeking an owner/operator who will operate and maintain the Pier 6 berths at the highest standards, offering educational exhibits, cultural programming, and/or food and beverage amenities, making a significant improvement to the quality and ambience of the Park.
The operator will be responsible for all aspects of the concession, including the design, implementation of capital improvements (if any), installation of equipment, maintenance, and operation, pursuant to a terminable at will license agreement with BBP. The initial term will be for 5 years, with one 2-year renewal options granted at BBP’s sole discretion.
There is an optional information session and site visit on February 25, 2020 at 10:00am and the last day to submit questions is February 27, 2020. Proposals are due on March 16, 2020 at 3:00pm.
