Construction is moving forward on BNYC 92, the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s new Exhibit/Visitor Center, according to Andrew Kimball, president and CEO of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corp, with a target opening date set for Veterans Day in November 2011, the Brooklyn Eagle reported. Plaza Construction is the construction manager for the center and Beyer Blinder Belle Architects & Planners and Workshop/APD are the design architects. At last week’s Community Board 2 meeting in Brooklyn Heights, Kimball gave an update on several construction projects at the Navy Yard, including the new center, the rebuilt Sand Street gate and Admirals Row. The new center combines the old Building 92, a three-story brick building and former Marine commandant’s House that will be restored, with a new 23,500-square-foot modern addition. When complete, the BNYC 92 — which is seeking LEED Platinum certification — will house displays and artifacts that tell the story of the 200-year history of the Navy Yard. [Brooklyn Eagle]
