RAL Companies and Oliver’s Realty Group Bring Robust Retail Experiences to Brooklyn Bridge Park


RAL Companies and Oliver’s Realty Group have welcomed twelve – now open – businesses to Quay Tower and the surrounding mixed-use development on Brooklyn Bridge Park. The southern corridor of the Park is now home to synergistic retail experiences spanning groceries, food and beverage, education and family-focused fun. Among the businesses that have most recently opened are: Town Market, a gourmet supermarket featuring the Iris Cafe, a beloved neighborhood staple, and, Bikes, Boards and Books NYC’s first indoor skateboarding and biking experience – with an educational twist – led by a former pro BMXer. Quay Tower is a record-setting new building at Pier 6 designed by ODA New York. It offers the last opportunity to own a new construction residence along Brooklyn Bridge Park.

“The vibrant retail offerings at both One Brooklyn Bridge Park and Quay Tower have exceeded our expectations in terms of diversity,” said Robert Levine, Chairman of RAL Companies. “There is truly something for everyone and it’s been rewarding to watch mom and pop retail businesses open and succeed at our properties. With the completion of Brooklyn Bridge Park, Quay Tower, being the last new development on the waterfront, is in a unique position to offer companies direct access to both a 24/7 neighborhood and the ultimate destination in the greatest city in the world. We’re thrilled to see these spaces activated and thriving.”

At the end of 2021 the final piece of the 85-acre Brooklyn Bridge Park, designed by acclaimed landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh, was completed. One mile of formerly industrial Brooklyn waterfront has been incrementally transformed over 13 years into one of the most beloved parks in New York City. Now the southern corridor at Pier 6 is alive with an incredible range of activities, entertainment and conveniences for locals and visitors. Brooklyn Bridge Park is visited by over six million people annually. There are 700+ immediately adjacent, family-sized residential units between One Brooklyn Bridge Park, The Landing, and Quay Tower. Recently added NYC Ferry service at Pier 6 – just across the street – seamlessly connects One Brooklyn Bridge to Manhattan (just 9 minutes to Wall Street) and other Brooklyn and Queens neighborhoods. There is also a 500-car attended public parking facility in the building.
