Brooklyn Muni Building to Get a Facelift
NYC-based United American Land plans to develop 49,000-sq-ft of retail space in the Brooklyn Municipal Building at 210 Joralemon St. Under the deal, part of the city’s ongoing efforts to revitalize Downtown Brooklyn, UAL will pay $10 million to develop the western portion of the first, second, and below-grade floors of the 13-story, 383,000-sq-ft structure, Mayor Michael Bloomberg's office reports.
The project will create 64 full-time construction jobs and 114 permanent jobs. Construction is set to begin in 2012. Contractors have not yet been chosen, says an industry source.
Sherida Paulson, principal at PKSB Architects in New York, was chosen to design the space, the source says. PKSB did not return calls by press time. New York-based Mckenzie, Voorhees & Gmelin designed the building, which was erected in 1925.
