Activate Our Plazas



We manage one million feet of public space in Downtown Brooklyn. That includes some of Brooklyn’s busiest plazas in New York City’s third largest shopping district. You can reach thousands of residents and office workers in the heart of Brooklyn’s central business district.  

Willoughby Plaza

This beautiful plaza sits just off the bustling Fulton Mall, Brooklyn’s most famous shopping district, and is surrounded by popular restaurants and lit by tivoli lights in the evenings. Just steps from Downtown Brooklyn’s 11 colleges, bustling MetroTech Center, and beautiful Brooklyn Heights, this plaza sees a daily average of 40,000 pedestrians. Willoughby Plaza is a prime location for a variety of events and commercial activations.

Albee Square

Right in the center of Downtown Brooklyn, Albee Square sits at the heart of famous Fulton Mall next to City Point, home to Century 21, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, Trader Joe’s, Target, and DeKalb Market Food Hall. With Downtown Brooklyn’s burgeoning residential population, Albee Square has become a gathering place for the community and a venue for great programming.

MetroTech Commons

Located in the heart of the bustling office campus known as MetroTech Center, the Commons is a large open space where you are bound to find everyone from workers having lunch outside to parents playing with their children after work. The Commons is the location for events, such as BAM’s Rhythm & Blues Festival, outdoor fairs, and DBP’s Summer @ MetroTech series of fitness classes and ping pong tournaments.

The Plaza @ 300 Ashland

This expansive plaza sits at the heart of the Brooklyn Cultural District, adjacent to brownstone Brooklyn neighborhoods of Fort Greene, Boerum Hill, and Park Slope. The design of the plaza, with its broad sweep of steps overlooking Downtown Brooklyn, affords the perfect venue for a variety of events. 

As with all public open space throughout Downtown Brooklyn, the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership manages, programs, and maintains the plaza. DBP has partnered with premier local organizations such as Mark Morris Dance Group, Brooklyn Public Library, TFANA, BRIC Arts Media, and BAM, to offer free, high-quality programming, as well as a range of free fitness and recreation classes.
