Built between 1941 and 1942, Building 77 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard was originally designed by architect George T. Basset for the Bureau of Yards and Docks Administration. It served as a storage site and nerve center for the Navy during WWII and was renovated and reopened as a manufacturing and creative office building in 2017. The renovation was led by Beyer Blinder Belle and Marvel Architects; highlights of the renovation include the creation of 400 windows on the concrete façade and a redesigned entrance with a central corridor equipped for a state-of-the-art food manufacturing center.
