RED HOOK, Brooklyn — An architectural firm is looking to completely transform the Red Hook waterfront.

Artist renderings show what Red Hook would look like if global architecture firm AECOM were to move forward with construction.

The plan includes protection from rising sea levels and 45,000 new units. A quarter of those units would be classified as affordable housing.

A new subway infrastructure will support three new subway stations in addition to a No. 9 train.

AECOM'S metro executive Chris Ward says the plan is not close to reality just yet.

"This is only the beginning of a conversation," said Ward. "It's a way to think creatively about how New York can grow."

Ward says there is potentially another three to five years before the concept is pushed past the "idea" phase.
