NEW YORK | Brooklyn Visual and Performing Arts Library

Quote:
Borough Brooklyn
Architect TEN Arquitectos
Venue Type Museum
Address Flatbush Avenue at Lafayette Avenue
Project Type New Facility
Budget $70 million
Square Footage 100,000
Completion Date 2009
Associate Architect Guggenheimer Architects
Structural Engineer Guy Nordensen and Associates/Robert Silman Associates
M/E/P Engineer ARUP

An international competition yielded the dynamic design for the Visual and Performing Arts Library. As part of the Brooklyn Public Library system, the institution is devoted to art, architecture, music, dance, theater and film and includes an auditorium, café, reading rooms, galleries and studios. The V-shaped plan is a response to the library's location at the intersection of three major thoroughfares at the heart of the BAM Cultural District, creating a welcoming staircase that can also serve as an outdoor amphitheater. The layered glazed façade facilitates reading and other activities inside will preserving the library's collections.

I don't think there is an empty lot or anything that close to the Williamsburg Savings Bank Tower. Also where is the link to the article or your source? Because apparently this was already finished (which it isn't).

This was proposed back in 2007 and in 2008 the plan changed to this. Since then there has been no news.
