370 Jay Street Recognized with Adaptive Reuse / Historic Preservation Excellence Award in the AIA BKLYN Design Awards
The MG designed renovation of 370 Jay Street was recognized with an Adaptive Reuse / Historic Preservation Excellence Award in the 2020 AIA BKLYN Design Awards. The project turned an abandoned mid-century office building in downtown Brooklyn into NYU’s new hub for media, technology, and the arts. 370 Jay street proves that it is possible to achieve LEED Platinum by transforming an existing building into a high-performing contemporary structure. Despite common challenges such as low floor-to-floor heights and a long, narrow footprint, the highest standard of design excellence and sustainable practices can still be applied to adaptive reuse projects.
