St. Ann’s Reveals Tobacco Warehouse Renderings

At the April 17 Community Board Two land use meeting, St. Ann’s Warehouse revealed  renderings for its new home in the historic Tobacco Warehouse site in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Though H3 Hardy Collaboration created some initial design concepts for the theater space, the project is now being carried out by Rogers Marvel Architects.

Curbed NY reports:

[The] design calls for an 18,000-square-foot enclosed building with “a flexible performance space,” plus another 1,000-square-foot multi-use space for local artists and community groups. The lobby will have access to Brooklyn Bridge Park, and the plan also includes a “view corridor” looking out at the park and the water.

The other major design feature is a 7,600-square-foot open space designed by Michael Van Valkenberg Associates and “imagined as a walled birch tree grove.” That space will be open to the public during park hours and may also double as an entrance to the theater.

The full CB2 design presentation is available on the Brooklyn Bridge Park website here. And, of course, we can’t mention St. Ann’s Warehouse without noting that Mayday Mayday just opened this week — snag your tickets here.
