Located at the corner of Vanderbilt and Flushing Avenues at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Building 77 is a one-million square foot building that will be coming online in 2017. Built in the run-up to World War II as a windowless storage facility, Building 77 is now in the midst of a comprehensive $185 million renovation that will transform the building into a state of the art industrial/manufacturing, tech and design hub. When completed, Building 77 will add 3,000 jobs and will expand employment at the Navy Yard by more than 40%.

For tenants interested in joining the Brooklyn Navy Yard family, Building 77 represents one of the first opportunities in years where the Yard will have significant space to accommodate the growth of existing businesses or provide a home to new businesses. The 16-story building, which includes a 60,000 square-foot ground floor public food manufacturing hub, will serve as a public gateway to the Yard, and the central gathering point for Yard businesses, employees and their guests.  New York institution Russ & Daughters recently signed on to be a ground floor anchor tenant and other food production businesses will lease smaller spaces throughout the ground floor to enhance and compliment the food and beverage offerings.

The building’s two penthouse floors on Floors 14 and 15, totaling 150,000 square feet, offer 360-degree views of Manhattan and Brooklyn, with four terraces per floor. For smaller tenants, floors 3 through 9 offer a “prebuilt program” where the Yard will be delivering turn-key units that range from 3,000 sf up to 14,000 sf.

Other Building Details include:

  • 24/7 building
  • The ceiling heights on floors 3 thru 5 are 10’3 and on floors 6 thru 9 11’.
  • (4) modernized 16,000 lb. freight elevators
  • (8) modernized passenger elevator
  • New building-wide condenser water system served by (4) 925-ton cooling towers.
