McKibbin Street Industrial Center

This project was a combined renovation and preservation of nine historic buildings. Originally the H. Lawrence & Sons Rope Works, they date from the 1850s and 1930s.

The 317-foot long complex at the western edge of North Brooklyn’s Industrial Business Zone provides light industrial and artisanal workspaces. As the last remaining structure of its kind in Brooklyn it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

In 2009, the project was recognized with two awards, the New York State Historic Preservation Award and a Building Brooklyn Award.
