Say “Hey” to Susi Yu, the newest member of the Board of Directors at the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy. Susi was elected to the position at the group’s June 23 meeting.
Chairwoman Nancy Bowe said her arrival was a boon.
“Susi’s business savvy, expansive knowledge of development, and entrepreneurial spirit will make her an essential asset to the Conservancy and our work to support Brooklyn Bridge Park,” she said.
Our pal Susi is the executive veep of residential development for Forest City Ratner Companies, and is overseeing the construction of Pacific Park in Brooklyn, near Barclays Center. Susi was trained as an architect, studying at the University of Virginia’s School of Architecture, and is a registered architect in New York.

Susi is thrilled that she can help promote the local landscape.
“Our open spaces are some of the most important and recognizable features of Brooklyn and hold a special place in my family’s heart,” she said. “I look forward to working with the Board to ensure that Brooklyn Bridge Park continues to be a world-class destination.”
Standing O wishes Susi good fortune.
