MULTIFAMILY HOUSING Navy Green ARCHITECT: FXCOLLABORATIVE LOCATION: BROOKLYN, N.Y. Navy Green is a cornerstone and catalyst for equitable rein- vestment in Brooklyn's Wallabout neighborhood. The project transformed the historic Navy Brig site into a 450,000-square- foot residential and retail development covering nearly an entire city block. Certified LEED Silver for Neighborhood Development, Navy Green sets a benchmark for neigh- borhood-scale architecture by employing contextually responsive and environmentally sustainable design to achieve social and economic balance in urban growth. The neighbor- hood-within-a-neighborhood complex is composed of four multifamily residential buildings enrolled in various affordable and supportive housing programs, two rows of market-rate townhouses, a community facility and retail space, and a central common green space. The interior lawn—the "green" of Navy Green—is open and directly accessible to every resi- dent, an oasis in the park-starved neighborhood that acts as a social aggregator. —FX Collaborative Photo: Cour tesy of FXCollaborative Photo: Copyright Jeremy Bittermann Photo: Copyright Jeremy Bittermann 36 RESIDENTIALDESIGNMAGA ZINE.COM VOL. 3, 2018 AWARDS
