New Myrtle Hall Honored by Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce

Myrtle Hall was named winner of a 2011 Building Brooklyn Award, conferred by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce. Myrtle Hall won in the “Education” category and is one of 13 Brooklyn buildings to be recognized this year.

Each year, the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce recognizes recently completed new and renovation construction projects that enrich Brooklyn’s neighborhoods and economy. Designed by New York City architectural firm WASA/Studio A, Pratt’s Myrtle Hall, located at 536 Myrtle Avenue, is expected to receive LEED Gold certification for its eco-friendly features that include exterior sun shades; a green roof that absorbs rainwater, reflects heat, and sequesters greenhouse gasses; and solar photovoltaic panels that generate on-site electricity.

The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce and its Real Estate and Development Committee will present the awards at a celebration on July 14 from 6–9 PM at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
