On the Brooklyn waterfront where war ships were made a century ago, a developer has taken a three-story, 9,400-sq-ft brick Italianate structure and joined it to a new glass-and-steel, 23,000-sq-ft wing to function as a combination cultural facility and museum.

The $23-million project depicts the 200-year history of the Navy Yard with exhibits that include a 20-ft-tall anchor. It also includes classrooms and gallery space for rotating art exhibits.

Aspiring to LEED-Platinum status, the center boasts a geothermal heating and cooling system and solar panels for heating hot water. The curtain wall on the southern facade has a solar screen.
