WILLIAMSBURG — The opening of a long-awaited waterfront building — which features a green roof, shade structures and two community rooms beside East River State Park — has been pushed back again, from its expected unveiling in June.

Bushwick Inlet Park's community building, set back from the park's soccer field, is now slated to open in September, a spokeswoman from the Parks Department said.

Earlier this summer the North Brooklyn Parks Department's leader Ed Janoff announced to an excited crowd that the space would be open by the end of June. Parks officials did not comment on the reason for the delay.

The building, which also include Parks Department offices, will use solar power for at least half of the center's energy, the building's architect notes on its website.
