Curbed attended Community Board Two’s land use meeting this week and got an update on what theater group St. Ann’s Warehouse is planning for its remake of Dumbo’s historic Tobacco Warehouses. The big news is that architect H3 Hardy Collaboration isn’t on board any more, and Rogers Marvel Architects is the new firm. Architect Jonathan Marvel and the St. Ann’s Warehouse crew presented a design for an 18,000-square-foot enclosed building with performance space, a 1,000-square-foot multipurpose space, and a 7,600-square-foot open space “imagined as a walled birch tree grove.” The open space will be designed by Michael Van Valkenberg Associates and it will be open to the public during park hours. The theater lobby will also have access into Brooklyn Bridge Park. Check out another rendering over at Curbed.
