McKibbin Street Industrial Center

Brooklyn, NY
Structural Design

The Industrial Center at McKibbin Street is a gut renovation of several buildings constructed in the 1850’s and 1930’s. The new complex provides 72,000 square feet of light manufacturing and artisan workspace which houses more than 100 full-time jobs when leased. While a modern infrastructure was installed, the historic brick facade and interior and 1930’s era multi-light steel windows were restored to their original specifications. The property is the last remaining structure of its kind in Brooklyn, originally serving as a rope manufacturer within Brooklyn’s then thriving maritime industry. The site is on the National Register of Historic Places and is the winner of the 2009 Historic Preservation Award.
