On Monday evening at Brooklyn Borough Hall, Brooklyn Bridge Development Corp. head Regina Myer revealed the only two responses to the group’s RFP for the Tobacco Warehouse. The two plans, submitted by LAVA/Volcano Love, a Prospect Heights-based cultural organization, and St. Ann’s Warehouse, the longtime tenant at Two Trees-owned space across Water Street, drew (predictably) lots criticism, ranging from those opposed to any adaptive reuse of the Civil War-era ruin to those who want to make sure that whatever is built there doesn’t stick out above the existing structure. As Brooklyn Heights Blog reports, there was also push-back from politicians about a process that only ended up eliciting two proposals. Check out the BHB post for more details and the Brooklyn Bridge Park website to download the presentation.
