The plan hopes to link green space together in the Strand area and includes a renovated (perhaps more cluttered) Cadman Plaza, more bike lanes and pedestrian walkways, retail spaces, cafes, and plazas.
The stated goals of the Brooklyn Strand are:
1: Rectify "mistakes of urban renewal"
2: Repair urban fabric and neighborhood connections
3: Advance equity through public investment in open space in the area
4: Create real access to Brooklyn Bridge Park
5: Craft a world-class gateway into the Brooklyn Borough
6: Identify and create opportunities for affordable housing development on Strand site
In some areas there would be more green space, in others green space would be paved for the plazas or cafes.
