ABOUT ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina
With the calmest waters in all of New York Harbor thanks to its advanced technology and design, the marina will accommodate boats ranging from 16’ to 250’ for seasonal docking at facilities of the highest quality, a sailing club and school and a members-only Harbor Club. The project design was developed by the community’s desire for public access with extensive input from local waterfront experts, residents and not-for-profit groups. Two percent of marina services revenue will be dedicated to exceptional community programming that will make boating and kayaking available to residents of all ages, abilities, and incomes.
The first new marina to be constructed in New York Harbor in a generation, ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina is the realization of a response to a 2013 Request for Proposal issued by Brooklyn Bridge Park. Joint venture partners SUTL Group and Edgewater Resources were selected to develop and operate the marina because of their commitment to Brooklyn Bridge Park’s mission of making the waterfront more accessible to the public.
Arthur Tay, Chairman of SUTL Group, the visionary behind the ONE°15 Marina brand brings his expertise and experience that earned ONE°15 Marina Club Singapore the title of Best Marina and Yacht Club in Asia (2009, 2012-2014). “Boating and the water have long been passions of mine and I recognized an opportunity in Singapore, to bring the water and that lifestyle to a wider audience,” said Mr. Tay. “As we looked to expand the brand into international destinations we identified the perfect opportunity in Brooklyn with the vibrant, lush public spaces of Brooklyn Bridge Park and Manhattan skyline backdrop to open the water itself there to New York City. Boaters and water enthusiasts from around the corner and around the world will feel at home at ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina.”
The marina’s Community Dock will be one of the largest docks in New York City, making up nearly 25% of the square footage of dock space at ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina once completed. The Community Dock will offer free and affordable community boating, as well as a world-class facility where these programs can thrive. Free and affordable boating experiences will be coordinated by the Marina with its community partners, and a full program is in development.
“In New York City we are surrounded by water yet there are so few opportunities to interact with the harbor,” said Regina Myer, President of Brooklyn Bridge Park. “This marina with its robust free and low cost programming, makes the waterfront accessible in new ways to even more New Yorkers and puts Brooklyn on the map for the global boating community.”

EDGEWATER RESOURCES: GREEN DESIGN
Edgewater Resources was founded with the goal of helping communities and landowners enhance their waterfronts, with a focus on planning, design, and engineering solutions based in economic reality.
In partnership with the Brooklyn Bridge Park, Edgewater Resources conceived a state-of-the-art marina that will incorporate a wide range of sustainable technologies, including LED lighting, 100% recyclable dock materials, photovoltaic panels to provide energy for club facilities, and decking surfaces that allow 40% of the sunlight to pass through to the water below to reduce shading, making this project a model for future New York Harbor marinas.
