The renovation is scheduled to wrap by the end of this year

Later this year, the city will complete a two-year, $115 million renovation of the Brooklyn Army Terminal in Sunset Park, and Untapped Cities has now got its hands on several new renderings of the development.

These particular renderings pertain to the outdoor landscaping of the area that was designed by WXY Architecture. Among the new additions this will bring include additional seating, permeable pavements for stormwater runoff, and better navigational signs and markings to get between the several buildings on campus, the parking area, and the recently opened ferry terminal. These outdoor renovations span 12,000 square feet.

Aside from the nearby Bush Terminal and Industry City, the city is also trying to attract tenants to Brooklyn Army Terminal, particularly “job-dense” companies as opposed to companies that just pay higher rent, a spokesperson for NYCEDC told Untapped Cities.

Notable current tenants here include Jacques Torres Chocolate and Lowercase Eyewear. A food manufacturing hub proposed by the city last summer, also opened in June this year.
