Deepwater Wind LLC, the company building the only U.S. offshore wind farm, is looking at a Brooklyn waterfront site as a staging ground as it pursues a potential project off the south shore of Long Island, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.

Securing the waterfront site, the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal, would be Deepwater’s first step toward building the wind farm that would generate clean power for New York City, according to the person, who asked not to be identified because the negotiations are private.
