On Thursday November 9th, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation, and local dignitaries celebrated the opening of Building 77, a WWII-era storage facility and former warehouse that has been transformed into a state-of-the-art commercial and light manufacturing space with a ground floor marketplace.

The $185 million renovation of Building 77 – the largest structure on the Navy Yard’s 300-acre campus – represents a significant milestone in the site’s ongoing redevelopment as an urban manufacturing hub and catalyst for economic development.

In addition to a comprehensive upgrade of the building’s core-and-shell, MEP and life-safety systems, entries, lobbies, and lighting, BBB designed custom graphics and signage to create a contemporary identity for Building 77.

BBB has been involved in several projects at the Navy Yard, including BLDG 92: Brooklyn Navy Yard Center, restoration of the Sands Street Gatehouses (now home to the Kings County Distillery), and a Facilities Assessment & Capital Planning Study of the site and buildings.
