  • Lendlease Americas responds:  Greenpoint Ferry Landing Launch Update

    India Street Pier has been and will continue to be open throughout this process.

    In-water construction at the Greenpoint ferry landing is on-going, and we’re happy to see that significant progress has been made. However, the rock socketing process to secure the piles in place is taking longer than expected and we now anticipate the launch of the landing to be at the end of October or early November.

    India Street Pier has been and will continue to be open throughout this process. The Greenpoint ferry landing at India Street Pier remains a key resource for the Greenpoint community and future 1 Java development.

    We will continue to provide updates on construction progress and communicate the reopening date as soon as it is confirmed, working in partnership with the New York City Economic Development Corporation and NYC Ferry operator.

    On March 15, 2022 Lendlease announced the start of the construction to restore ferry service at the India Street Pier was delayed due to an additional US Army Core of Engineer moratorium prohibiting construction until July. That moratorium was revised and Lendlease now anticipates construction to start in late May with ferry service being restored in August. India Street Pier has been and will continue to be open throughout this process.

  • Lendlease Americas responds: Ferry Service Anticipated to Resume in September 2022

    India Street Pier has been and will continue to be open throughout this process. The Greenpoint ferry landing at India Street pier is a key resource for residents of our future 1 Java development as well as the surrounding community, and it will be returning in 2022!  There are no plans to discontinue service at the Greenpoint ferry landing. 

    In addition to the in-water construction moratorium issued by NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) that ends in May 2022, the US Army Core of Engineers (ACOE) has recently issued an additional pile driving moratorium that ends June 2022. Construction cannot commence until early July 2022. Ferry service is now anticipated to be restored during September 2022. India Street Pier has been and will continue to be open throughout this process.

    Background
    On May 23, 2021, it was observed that there was a danger to the public due to shifting piles on the floating ferry landing connected to India Street Pier. Lendlease immediately initiated the closing and removal of the ferry landing for assessment. For the safety of our passengers and crews, it was clear that the ferry landing and supports needed to be rebuilt to be sustainable for the long term as well as operational as soon as possible.

    Due to the length of the permitting process and an annual moratorium on in-water construction in place by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, construction was originally scheduled to commence late May, 2022.  More recently, the US Army Core of Engineers (ACOE) issued an additional pile driving moratorium to minimize impacts to migrating anadromous fish (i.e. alewife, blueback herring), that ends in June 2022.  As a result, construction cannot commence until early July 2022.

    At the completion of construction ferry service will be restored, which is anticipated in September 2022. In the meantime, The India Street Pier itself remains open and available to the public.
