Downtown Brooklyn was selected as the winner of the $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative in New York City.

Downtown Brooklyn is Kings County’s central business district, as well as its civic, cultural, transit, and employment hub. With more than 12,000 residential units, 20 million square-feet of occupied offices, 11 higher education institutions, and new retail and entertainment destinations, the area has been transformed into a 24/7 community.Downtown Brooklyn has become an urban center for the information technology, arts, and entertainment industries. To reap the full benefits of the Downtown’s recent economic growth, the DRI effort will spur investment in much needed critical infrastructure in the Downtown core to create welcoming and safe connections to key assets, ensure equitable and accessible future growth, and improve wellbeing and job opportunities in traditionally underserved communities. Jumpstarted by the DRI investment, Downtown Brooklyn will improve the public realm and physical connections to the neighborhoods by extending educational and entrepreneurial opportunities and linking cultural hubs of the Downtown core, the Brooklyn Cultural Districts, DUMBO, and surrounding communities.
