Brooklyn Academy of Music
As part of the citywide effort to revitalize Brooklyn’s cultural district, the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) commenced the Fulton Street Redevelopment project, which included renovations and fit-outs to BAM’s Harvey Theater and the two adjacent properties in order to expand the theater’s programming capabilities. Scope at Harvey Theater included the renovation of the inner and outer lobbies, the upgrade of systems and finishes, and the integration of circulation from the adjoining building renovation at 653 Fulton Street. Hunter Roberts also renovated all floors above the outer lobby, which included replacing seats, providing new finishes, and installing a new elevator lobby for the Harvey Theater Gallery (balcony). At the adjacent 653 Fulton Street, which was an empty lot, a new structure was built to provide additional circulation space, support space, and ADA-compliant elevator access to the Harvey Theater Gallery. Scope for the adjacent residential high-rise, 230 Ashland Place, included the build-out of the ground floor retail space to provide a café that links with the Harvey Theater’s main lobby. To conclude the redevelopment, Hunter Roberts restored the existing Harvey Theater façade and unified all three façades. The Harvey Theater remained open to the public throughout the renovation. The project is LEED Silver certification.
