At the Community Board 2 public hearing about plans for the redevelopment of Admiral’s Row a couple weeks ago, Navy Yard Development Corporation President Andrew Kimball was vague on the question of whether two of the historic buildings on the site can be preserved, but he was more confident about the matter at another hearing in front of Borough President Marty Markowitz last week, according to the Eagle. The paper reports that “Kimball…spoke of a commitment to historic preservation, noting that Building B and the Timber Shed — said to be the last of its kind in the nation — will be preserved and incorporated into the planned development.” Earlier this year the National Guard said both buildings were beyond repair. At the hearing last week Kimball also said that there’s been a lot of interest in the industrial space that’s going to be built above the supermarket as part of the redevelopment.
