Brooklyn Basin is a 64-acre industrial waterfront being transformed into a vibrant mixed-use neighborhood with more than 30 acres of public parks, trails, and marinas. The location is named after the six-month voyage of the Brooklyn ship and its 238 Mormon passengers that set sail from New York to San Francisco in 1846. Later, in the 1930s, the site became a vital center for shipping. Volume’s work alongside the talented team at EinwillerKuehl tells the story of a historic site being again transformed into a new, vibrant community much in the way the passengers of the Brooklyn ship did almost 175 years ago. The work includes large scale environmental graphics, interpretive moments, and wayfinding.
