Designed by Magnusson Architecture and Planning, the Sunset Park Library in Brooklyn will be a 21,000-sf facility topped with 50 affordable residences for qualified low-income occupants.

The eight-story, mixed-use building will replace the old Sunset Park library branch. Two and a half floors of the building will be reserved for library space, which is more than double the square footage of the current library branch. A glass front will welcome visitors and large windows will bring natural light into the library’s reading and learning spaces.

Above the library floors, a brick exterior is meant to echo the neighborhood’s surrounding brick buildings. Masonry gives way to paneling at the seventh floor setback and insets on the facade. Solar panels on the roof will help with energy cost reductions. Residential amenities will include a community room that opens onto a landscaped outdoor deck at the second floor. The project is slated for completion in December 2020.
