Official Launch of Marvel Architects
Following the announcement in August that Rogers Marvel is becoming two independent firms, we are pleased to officially launch Marvel Architects. With a reinvigorated team comprised of newly promoted partners and long-time associates, Marvel Architects will continue a design sensibility that is inventive and thoughtful, with meticulous attention to detail at all scales and forms. Our current projects include Pierhouse and 1 Hotel, a mixed use development comprised of two residential buildings and a hotel located at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge with unsurpassed park and harbor views (currently under construction with Toll Brothers and Starwood Capital). Also in Brooklyn Bridge Park is St. Ann’s Warehouse, an adaptive reuse of the Tobacco Warehouse on the waterfront in DUMBO, which will break ground in October. We are hard at work at the New Jersey Institute of Technology designing the Center for Innovation and Discovery, which will be the new academic heart of the campus. The second phase of our much-celebrated 14+9 State Street Townhouses is almost complete–the additional 9 townhouses are hitting the market with perfect timing. Looking ahead, we are designing New Lab at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, featured in The New York Times; we are converting this historic naval shipbuilding hangar into a collaborative new manufacturing incubator space. Other projects on the boards include working with KPF to masterplan the Port Authority Bus Terminal, implementing our park designs along the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway, and converting the landmarked St. Patrick’s School at Prince and Mott Sts. into residential units. Stay tuned for more exciting projects to be announced soon.
