The transformation of the Brooklyn Navy Yard from a once-thriving manufacturing center to 21st-century tech incubator is well underway, with plenty of new amenities—a shuttle service, a Wegmans grocery store, and an enormous food hall among them—planned for the Brooklyn waterfront. And while we've gotten some glimpses at what these forthcoming spaces will look like, a set of renderings uncovered by Brownstoner provides perhaps the most comprehensive overview thus far.
The diagram above provides some insight into the location of the Navy Yard's forthcoming projects, including the Wegmans grocery store (which will rise on the site of the beloved, dilapidated Admiral's Row), the expansion of Steiner Studios, and Building 77, which is by far the Navy Yard's most ambitious project.
Building 77 will take up more than 1 million square feet of space, which will be divided between office and shared work spaces, private event spaces, and a huge ground-floor food hall that will be anchored by the first Brooklyn outpost of Russ & Daughters.
The four different spaces detailed on the diagram above would add a planned 12,000 jobs to the Navy Yard. To accommodate those workers, the Yard has announced the creation of a free shuttle service, equipped with things like free Wi-Fi, and there will be additional transportation options like Citi Bike on the premises. According to Brownstoner, businesses who move to the Navy Yard could also benefit from the city's Relocation and Employee Assistance Program (REAP), a tax incentive program.
