The Brooklyn Public Library has filed applications for a new two-story, 15,256-square-foot Greenpoint branch library. The new building will replace the old, single-story library at 107 Norman Avenue, located on the corner of Leonard Street in Greenpoint.
The library will span two floors and include multiple rooftop terraces. In addition to regular library programing, it will feature the Environmental Education Center, which will include lab spaces. Brooklyn-based Marble Fairbanks is the responsible for the architecture and SCAPE Landscape Architecture is handling the green spaces.
Construction is expected to take 18 months, the Brooklyn Paper reported in 2016, with completion in early 2018. Demolition permits were filed last August.
