ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina is the first new marina in New York City in 50 years.

A Singapore-based marina developer said it is opening New York City’s first new marina in 50 years.

ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina is set on 8 acres between Piers 4 and 5 at the mouth of the East River in Brooklyn. The company said the marina cost more than $28 million and involved “massive infrastructure” work.

“ONE°15 is proud to bring to fruition the first new marina in New York Harbor in a generation,” said SUTL Chairman and CEO Arthur Tay, the marina’s developer in a statement. “We were pleased to partner with Brooklyn Bridge Park and the City of New York to develop this outstanding marina, which will revitalize recreational boating in the New York City.”

SUTL officials worked with city, state and federal agencies for the permitting and renovations.

The marina will have space for more than 100 boats from 30 to 200 feet.

The developers said a “robust system” of wave attenuators, comprised of deep draft steel barges, were added to reduce the size and energy of incoming waves. These wave-dampening barges are the first of their kind in New York City.

The marina construction also included the expansion of the Community Dock, which comprises the city’s largest access point, designed for recreational and educational activities such as kayaking and sailing.

“The operational team at ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina worked closely with engineers, architects and its Singapore-based owners to maximize the usage of this iconic location,” said John Winson, general manager of ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina in the statement. "The marina will accommodate everyone — from deep draft ocean-going yachts to single kayakers."
