Brooklyn Bridge Park requested proposals for a residential development at a vacant parcel at John Street in the northern end of the park.

The 9,600-square-foot Dumbo site is located in an empty 147,460-square-foot lot just east of the Manhattan Bridge. The property allows for up to 130 residential units with a maximum height of 130 feet, up to 110 parking spaces and ground-floor retail.

The park is asking developers to submit proposals that demonstrate eco-friendly elements, include flood-protection measures and match the existing public space.

The Con Edison site near the John Street parcel will be transferred from ConEd to Brooklyn Bridge Park, which will then start construction on a 1.5-acre park space with pedestrian bridges over tidal salt marsh, tree-lined pathways and a 13,000-square-foot gathering lawn. The build-out is expected to be completed within a year and is fully funded.

The deadline for residential development proposals is March 11.
