Brooklyn Navy Yard Naval Annex 

The Naval Annex of the Brooklyn Navy Yard is a former Naval Hospital complex that has been vacant for decades. The Annex contains buildings built between the mid-19th and mid-20th centuries that are in varying stages of disrepair. The buildings range in size and complexity from single-family bungalows to a hospital building.


LERA’s scope of work was to review existing documentation and perform walkthrough condition assessments for eachbuilding, and prepare a report describing the nature of structural repairs required for their restoration. This 32,000-sf (3,000-sm) subgrade eatery is housed in a building covered with soil on three sides, blending seamlessly with the landscape.  A full height glass wall gives entry to the facility, containing a kitchen, servery, indoor seating and an outdoor dining patio.  The facility includes a bank, cleaners, and covered corridors which connect to two existing buildings.  The project received a Grand Award from the American Concrete Institute New Jersey Chapter
