Save this picture!© AA StudioWritten by Rory Stott Share CopyAA Studio have revealed their plans for the development of Brooklyn’s iconic New York Dock Company building, transforming the 230,000 square foot structure into a mixed-use complex of six commercial spaces on the ground floor, 70 residential loft apartments, and a rooftop deck and gardens above.The design aims to be as faithful to the original structure as possible, retaining the existing poured concrete columns and walls and exposing the high concrete ceilings. As one of the earliest structures to use the technology, the retention and celebration of these features is a key aspect of the building’s conservation.Read on after the break for more on the design+ 7Save this picture!© AA Studio”We recognized in Red Hook the creative spirit that exists, positioning Brooklyn as the new frontier for visionary design,” said Aldo Andreoli, Principal of AA Studio. “We wanted, first of all, to keep as much as possible; the purity of the existing concrete structure, incorporating at the same time the best new technologies available for energy efficiency and design quality.”Save this picture!© AA StudioThe loft-style apartment spaces feature a spacious, minimal design, including full-height doors which blend with the wall when closed and large 3-pane windows which allow for uninterrupted views of both Brooklyn and Manhattan. These views were enabled by introducing five vertical circulation cores, eliminating the need for corridors and allowing each apartment to span the width of the building.Save this picture!© AA StudioAt roof level, the building features gardens accessible to the residents of the apartments. The roof also features the building’s former water tower which will be converted into a penthouse apartment with 360-degree views of the area.The project is scheduled to be completed in 2016.Save this picture!© AA StudioArchitectsAA StudioLocation160 Imlay Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231, USALandscape DesignFuture Green StudioDeveloperEst4ate FourArea230000.0 ft2Project Year2016PhotographsAA StudioLocation160 Imlay Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231, USAProject Year2016PhotographsAA StudioArea230000.0 ft2Project gallerySee allShow lessModern Masters Of Materiality: An Interview With Australia’s Tonkin Zulaikha GreerArticlesThe Paris Debate: Must Preservation Inhibit Urban Renewal?ArticlesProject locationAddress:160 Imlay Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

JAY – The Board of Selectpersons voted to put the question of whether to allow marijuana retail stores in town before the voters at the April town meeting. They also declined to schedule a special town meeting to create a temporary moratorium on medical marijuana stores.Currently, opening a medical marijuana retail store in Jay would be legal. That will change on Dec. 13, when LD 1539 becomes active. That law creates an “opt-in” process for such establishments, wherein towns will vote to allow such stores to open. Jay does not have a municipal approval process for businesses beyond submitting a form to the town, so a medical marijuana business could theoretically open in the next couple on months. According to town officials, once such business has already done so.One possibility that other towns have utilized is the creation of a moratorium to ban such businesses until the Dec. 13 date.According to Town Clerk Ronda Palmer, even if the board opted to pursue that option, the scheduling of a special town meeting would mean that the moratorium wouldn’t become active until mid-November, basically impacting Jay for a single month. The board voted unanimously not to pursue a moratorium.The board did vote to use the April 2019 town meeting to decide whether Jay should allow the opening of retail marijuana establishments after Dec. 13, 2018. Selectpersons were of the opinion that Jay residents should decide the issue. Scheduling the vote to coincide with the town meeting, rather than a special town meeting, would ensure better participation, town officials agreed.LD 1539 only affects medical marijuana retail sales, as the state continues to develop regulations for adult recreational sales. However, it appears that such regulations will include an opt-in component similar to the one in LD 1539.Town Manager Shiloh LaFreniere noted that the town could implement ordinances to regular marijuana sales along with the opt-in vote. The board decided to wait on that issue to see what regulations the state will develop.

Twitter/@CBSSportsCBB Twitter/@CBSSportsCBBThis weekend featured some fantastic college basketball, but no moment matched Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden, where Duke pulled off a huge come from behind win over St. John’s to clinch win number 1000 for head coach Mike Krzyzewski. Coach K became the first coach in division one history to eclipse that milestone, and he did it behind a gritty effort by Jahlil Okafor, Tyus Jones, and the rest of his Blue Devils team. With the win, and an early-week blowout loss for Villanova to Georgetown, Duke is once again in the top five in both polls.Here are both the AP and USA Today Coaches Top 25 polls.RankAP PollCoaches Poll1.KentuckyKentucky2.VirginiaVirginia3.GonzagaGonzaga4.DukeDuke5.WisconsinWisconsin6.ArizonaArizona7.VillanovaVillanova8.Notre DameNotre Dame9.KansasLouisville10.LouisvilleUtah11.UtahKansas12.Wichita StateWichita State13.North CarolinaMaryland14.VCUNorth Carolina15.Iowa StateVCU16.MarylandIowa State17.West VirginiaWest Virginia18.Northern IowaNorthern Iowa19.TexasBaylor20.BaylorTexas21.GeorgetownIndiana22.IndianaGeorgetown23.MiamiMiami24.Oklahoma Colorado State25.ButlerArkansas
Ohio State freshman midfielder Jake Withers goes down to the ground toward a loose ball while being defended by Michigan sophomore midfielder Chase Brown in the second quarter of OSU men’s lacrosse 15-6 victory April 12 at Ohio Stadium. Credit: Dan Hope / Lantern photographerFor the briefest of moments, it seemed like the Michigan Wolverines were going to come to Ohio Stadium and pull an upset against the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team.A three-goal deficit early in the second quarter seemed to be a bad omen for the Buckeyes, who started the year winning one of their first five games.But OSU (5-6, 2-0) held Michigan (4-9, 1-3) scoreless in the second half, and pulled away in front of a season-high crowd of 17,641 to earn a 15-6 win Saturday in Ohio Stadium.OSU coach Nick Myers said the game presented his team with the opportunity to get a huge win in front of a larger than usual crowd due to the Spring Game.“For us, keeping it under the right microscope, it’s a league win and second to that, it’s a chance in front of a really special crowd,” Myers said. “I know our men understand the responsibility of what it means to put on that Block ‘O.’ We were excited about coming out here and defending it against one of our rivals.”Winners of four of their last five, the Buckeyes fell behind early after the Wolverines jumped out to a 5-2 lead less than two minutes into the second quarter.However, led by junior midfielder Jesse King, OSU battled back to even the score at six heading into halftime. King, who finished the game with five goals and an assist, now has 21 points in his last three games.King said the Buckeyes started poor, but found a way to turn things around and calm the game down.“We started rushing things a little bit on our offense, we were getting a little tedious and playing a little fast,” King said. “We just slowed things down and made it really simple.”Senior defenseman Joe Meurer said the job the offense did maintaining possession was a big reason why the defense held Michigan without a goal for the last 35:24 of the game.“Usually the best defense is an offense,” Meurer said. “I don’t think we lost more than three faceoffs in the second half, so that is a tribute to the hard work that the faceoff guys are putting in and the offense. They’ve been playing extremely well lately, and they kept the ball down in their end so we didn’t have to play.”King said freshman midfielder Jake Withers, who won 16 of 25 faceoffs during the game, has been improving week in and week out, and he expects great things to come.“Jake’s a really talented player,” King said. “A freshman coming in and he’s one of the guys that is stepping up really big for us. I can’t wait to see what else comes from him.”Offensively, the Buckeyes had five players register three or more points, including sophomore attackman Ryan Hunter, who scored a career-high four goals in his second career start.Defensively, OSU got another stellar outing from senior goaltender Scott Spencer, who made nine saves to improve to 3-1 on the season in replacement of injured senior goaltender Greg Dutton.Up next, OSU is set to play its final home game of the regular season against Air Force, April 19 at 1 p.m.Meurer said despite the win today, the Buckeyes need to stay the course and focus if they want to finish the season with a chance to make their second consecutive postseason appearance.“It’s huge but at the same time we can’t get complacent,” Meurer said. “We know there is still a long road ahead for us and we are going to continue to work hard and get better every day.”
