The Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation (BNYDC) is seeking design and development partners to advance the transformation of its sprawling industrial complex. A request for proposals was circulated earlier this month and calls for initial conceptual designs for industrial and commercial properties at the waterfront convergence of Kent, Washington, and Railroad Avenues, near the northeastern edge of Brooklyn Navy Yard.

Yesterday Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation and academic partners Pratt Institute and New York City College of Technology (City Tech) announced the Research Yard, an advanced research and applied learning facility based in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The idea began with “Pratt Research Yard”, a shared research facility between Pratt faculty, Brooklyn Navy Yard, and the community, and evolved into a public/private partnership with both Pratt Institute and City Tech, and the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The open-plan space will house new lab and office space to help develop solutions for real-world problems locally and globally.
The Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation this week announced two large technology and manufacturing leases at Building 127. Together, the new leases measure up to 56,000 square feet and represent a robust year of sales and progress within Brooklyn Navy Yard.
Despite the anticipated slowdown of commercial real estate, Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation, or BDNYC, is reporting more than 160,000 square feet of new commercial leases within the former industrial complex. This figure does not include an additional 81,000 square feet of lease renewals and an unspecified inventory in their 2021 pipeline.
Renderings from J Frankl Associates reveal a nine-story mixed-use property at 58 Vanderbilt Avenue in Vinegar Hill, Brooklyn. Located near the Brooklyn Navy Yard industrial complex, the development will take shape on a large corner lot with additional frontage along Park Avenue. The building will top out at 107 feet and comprise approximately 106,000 square feet, with 61,223 square feet of residential area divided among 90 rental units.
