Liberty View Industrial Plaza

South Brooklyn offers an impressive array of early-20th-century industrial buildings, including a pair of massive reinforced-concrete warehouses that were constructed in anticipation of America's entry into World War I. Collectively known as the U.S. Navy Fleet Supply Base, one of the buildings was eventually sold to a private developer known as Salmar Properties, whose vision for 1.2 million-square-foot redevelopment included retail, office and light industrial uses spread across the building's eight sprawling floors. Intent on capitalizing on the federal and state historic rehabilitation tax credit programs, Salmar engaged GDPC to get the property listed on the National Register of Historic Places, complete the three-part federal tax credit application, and provide guidance to its design team, leading the Brooklyn and Queens Chapter of the American Institute of Architects to award the project its Adaptive Reuse/Historic Preservation Merit Award in 2016. More recently, GDPC was brought back to assist Salmar's tenant, Brooklyn Grange, in securing post-tax-credit approvals for the introduction of a large-scale rooftop farm and dining hall.
