Brooklyn Army Terminal

Brooklyn, NY

Brooklyn Army Terminal is a 95 acre, 4.6 million square foot urban industrial hub for businesses and entrepreneurs in traditional, advanced manufacturing, food and film/TV/media production in NYC.

MHA has worked with the NYC Economic Development Corporation on multiple assignments at the BAT Complex, designing historic restoration, renovation and adaptive re-use projects. The project is part of a continuing re-development program by the New York City Economic Development Corporation.

The project included the restoration and adaptive re-use of the Administration Building, an existing historic five-story reinforced concrete building constructed in the 1930s.  Vacant since the mid 1970s, the building was restored in 2017 with State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) approval to accommodate business and food manufacturing uses.

Lobby entrance, elevators and common space upgrades to Building A – included the design of new interior finishes, lighting, concierge desk and security improvements.

Historic restoration of large courtyard atrium facades within Building B – included the removal of the original glazed skylight that exposed the original internal facades of the atrium to weathering.  Concrete repairs were performed in areas where spalling and cracking of the columns, spandrel beams and balconies occurred due to moisture penetration.

Restoration and adaptive re-use of 1.2 million square feet within Building A, an eight story 2.2 million square foot facility – vacant since the mid 1970s, the building was renovated in 2002 for the NYC Unified Court Systems and to support industrial and advanced technology tenants.
