334 Furman Street, Brooklyn Bridge Park
Spaceworks proposes to establish a new center for the creative arts in Brooklyn Bridge Park.
The proposed project will transform 334 Furman Street, an early 20th century three story former site of the New York Dock Company, into a revitalized home for the Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation and Conservancy offices, as well as a hub for residents, cultural workers, artists across disciplines, and Brooklyn-based cultural organizations.
With the proposed project, Spaceworks aims to build upon the ongoing transformation already underway along Brooklyn's East River Waterfront while seeking to achieve the following goals:
- Providing a stable home for Brooklyn-based artists, as well as for local cultural nonprofit organizations to grow their programming and capacity
- Creating a thriving lab and workspace that will allow for collaboration amongst artists and cultural organizations
- Developing a facility that reflects the public, community nature of Brooklyn Bridge Park, while also increasing park access for individual and public partners
- Providing community residents and visitors to Brooklyn Bridge Park with public programming developed in partnership with Brooklyn artists
