Brooklyn Borough President Eric. L Adams, State Senator Velmanette Montgomery (D-Bedford-Stuyvesant, Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Boerum Hill, Sunset Park) and City Councilman Stephen Levin (D-Brooklyn Heights, DUMBO, Williamsburg, Boerum Hill) applauded the groundbreaking of a new building at the Brooklyn Navy Yard today. 

Earlier today Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development Alicia Glen broke ground on 399 Sands Street, the latest addition of manufacturing and creative office space at the 300-acre Brooklyn Navy Yard.

The project is part of a $40 million city investment toward the building through the New York Works Program.

“The Brooklyn Navy Yard (BNY) has done an excellent job of preserving the waterfront for industrial, manufacturing and maritime uses. More importantly, BNY is an exemplary model of how to engage the community in their work. I applaud their leadership in creating access and opportunities for residents of surrounding communities, especially NYCHA residents and youth,” said Montgomery.
