Red Hook BOA Program Information
SBIDC received a Brownfield Opportunity Area (BOA) grant from the New York State’s Department of State (DOS). The grant allows SBIDC to create a revitalization plan for approximately 343-acres in Red Hook, Brooklyn. This area extends from Hamilton Avenue west to the waterfront, and encompasses the entire Industrial Business Zone (IBZ) in Red Hook. It has a high concentration of brownfields and was heavily impacted by flooding from Hurricane Sandy. The Red Hook BOA provides an opportunity to delve into the long-standing issues that affect brownfields and pursue a fine-grained economic examination of the future of Red Hook’s industrial area.
As part of the Red Hook BOA process, we conducted an Economic Analysis of the Red Hook industrial area. Click the image below for the full report.
