Event description

Description

On October 2, join David Ehrenberg and Claire Weisz for the unveiling of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Master Plan, along with tours of new projects with Jonathan Marvel and Navid Maqami.

As one of the largest adaptive reuse projects in New York City, the Brooklyn Navy Yard reimagines the Industrial Campus for the 21st century. The Yard preserves a rich manufacturing history while incubating a modern industrial sector, with an expected growth of 17,000 quality jobs by 2020. In BNY's 300-acre waterfront site, new vertical manufacturing development and public realm investments will strengthen connections with and offer new opportunities to surrounding communities.

How can New York City reshape our existing industrial sites to grow its modern manufacturing and accommodate new ways of working? How can we improve the public realm in industrial zones to enhance connection to the surrounding communities?
