25 Kent

Brooklyn, NY

25 Kent Street offers a direct connection from the heart of Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood to the East River waterfront, one of several waterfront activation efforts spearheaded by the City. The block will host the first new privately-financed manufacturing space in Brooklyn in over ten years and myriad public-private collaboration opportunities to stimulate the local waterfront economy.

MPFP was brought on board to conceptualize and design the middle-block plaza creating a pedestrian conduit from one of the block to the other, in addition to a several hundred square feet of open plaza space for the mixed-use economy at ground level. A mixed retail façade will draw users in, MPFP’s balanced mix of lush planted areas and permanent, and moveable, outdoor seating areas will encourage those to stay.
