Brooklyn Navy Yard

BLDG 92 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard is a public center and exhibition space celebrating the Navy Yard's past, present, and future - in an event marking the first time in 210 years that the Yard welcomed the public into its gates.

Building 92, the former Marine Commandant’s residence, designed in 1857 by the fourth architect of the U.S. Capitol, Thomas U. Walter, serves as the Yard’s public face, gateway, and ambassador, and home of the first major exhibition to tell the story of the Yard. After the federal government decommissioned the Yard in 1966, the stately building sank into advanced disrepair. BNYDC seized the opportunity to preserve the historic structure for an exemplary demonstration of creative adaptive reuse.

The new design weds the renovated historic structure to a 4-story modern extension that houses BNYDC's Employment Center, leasable space, classrooms and meeting/event space. The entire site has received LEED Certification- Platinum Status from the US Green Buildings Council, the highest designation for sustainable buildings.
