B.A.T. Loop

With access to parks and a recreational waterfront, higher-income residents of Bay Ridge enjoy clean air and outdoor activities. Separated by highway infrastructure, the neighboring lower-income district of Sunset Park lacks accessibility to greenspace. The Brooklyn Army Terminal (B.A.T.) is located at the border between these two districts. The B.A.T. loop introduces a circulation route connecting communities through public space, sports, and a library. The loop encourages the movement of people and knowledge as well as the movement of goods. By introducing new programs, the loop aims to be a place for the exchange of knowledge and keep the Brooklyn Army Terminal as a manufacturing hub.
