The annual Building Brooklyn Awards recognizes recently completed construction and renovation projects that improve the borough’s diverse neighborhoods and economy. Thirteen projects in various categories have been selected to receive awards in this year’s ceremony.
Now in its fifteenth year, Building Brooklyn Awards will take place on July 21 at the newly restored Kings Theatre, winner of this year’s historic preservation award. The Chamber will be honoring Andrew Kimball, CEO of Industry City and Purnima Kapur, Executive Director, NYC Department of City Planning, for their career-long contributions to Brooklyn’s real estate and development industry.

“The borough of Brooklyn is truly an innovation hub, where builders and designers can put their craft to use and enhance the city that surrounds them,” said Chamber President and CEO Carlo A. Scissura. “These projects represent the creative influence and inventive culture that inhabit our borough. I would like to congratulate all the winners for their state-of-the-art projects that make this urban setting a place the world needs to see.”

This year’s winners enrich the borough and its residents while exuding their quality Brooklyn-style,” said Chamber Board Chair Denise Arbesu. “I congratulate all the winners for their contributions, acknowledge our honorees, Andrew Kimball and Purnima Kapur, and look forward to seeing everyone at the beautiful Kings Theatre on July 21.”
