There was an official groundbreaking for the Theater for a New Audience in the BAM Cultural District this morning, even though construction started up on the future 299-seat venue earlier this week. There’s a permit in place for a four-story, 61-foot building on the Rockwell Place site, but the only rendering that’s been released is more than a year old. The city will be releasing more information and renderings later this afternoon, so check back here for updates as they come in. Update: Renderings for the theater are now live. Check out a few more, including a picture of the groundbreaking, after the jump. The TFNA also has this to say about its new space: “Acclaimed theatre architect Hugh Hardy has designed Theatre for a New Audience’s first home in the BAM Cultural District. Our home will be a 27,500 square-foot, sustainable “green” building, both elegant and efficient…. The design of our Mainstage is inspired by the Cottlesloe Theatre of Britain’s Royal National, a gorgeous, hardworking playhouse.” Construction should last until April 2013, with the first season slated for the spring of 2013.

OK, it’s really narrow and there are a lot of down lights but this Greenwood Heights house at 396A 19th Street looks pretty cute to us. Goes to show what some great rugs and Timorous Beasties wallpaper can do, right? That bath looks pretty slick, and we also like the new unpainted clapboard exterior. We’re not so […]
