The project sets a benchmark for neighborhood-scale architecture by employing contextually-responsive and environmentally sustainable design to achieve social and economic balance in urban growth.
Navy Green is a cornerstone and catalyst for equitable reinvestment in Brooklyn’s Wallabout neighborhood. The project transformed the historic Navy Brig site into a 450,000-square-foot residential and retail development covering nearly an entire city block. Certified LEED Silver for Neighborhood Development, Navy Green sets a benchmark for neighborhood-scale architecture by employing contextually-responsive and environmentally sustainable design to achieve social and economic balance in urban growth. The neighborhood-within-a-neighborhood complex is composed of four multi-family residential buildings enrolled in various affordable and supportive housing programs, two rows of market-rate townhouses, community facility and retail space, and a central common green space. The interior lawn—the “green” of Navy Green—is open and directly accessible to every resident, an oasis in the park-starved neighborhood that acts as a social aggregator.
"The integration of units of varying levels of income is well done, and the public green space on the podium is a fantastic amenity for all users." ~ Jury comment
