110 Livingston Street

BBB revitalized the former Board of Education headquarters building in downtown Brooklyn, transforming it into condominiums, community space, and public parking.

110 Livingston Street, a prominent historic building designed in 1929 by McKim, Mead & White, now houses 298 residential condominiums, a fitness center, outdoor courtyard space, and a 58,000 SF below-grade parking lot. A special feature of the project is the restoration of the lobbies and Hearing Room—the only surviving original interior spaces in the building—with the Hearing Room becoming a community destination as the new home of the Alliance of Resident Theatres of New York. BBB’s scope of work also included replacing almost 800 windows and the construction of a 4-story rooftop addition of alternating bay windows and zinc panels that complement the historic character of the building. Supporting the new addition is a complex structural system that includes a zone at the 12th floor that transfers the loads of the new upper floors to the steel frame of the existing building below.
