DBI Projects led the development and project management of Newlab from conceptual planning and financing through entitlements, construction and completion.

DBI engineered the Public-Private Partnership between the developer, Macro Sea, the property owner, Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corp, and the State of New York through the Empire State Development Corporation and the City of New York through the Brooklyn Borough President, the City Council and the Economic Development Corporation (EDC).

Newlab was founded to address significant societal needs by scaling and commercializing emerging technologies and companies.

Today, Newlab includes more than 900 entrepreneurs, partnerships with forward-thinking corporate and civic entities, and the support of domain experts—all working together to scale frontier technologies.

Site Visit: Manitoga Residence and Russel Wright Design Center

May 09, 2024
11:00-2:00pm ET

We are pleased to invite Brick & Wonder Pro & Council members to a private tour of the Manitoga Residence and Russel Wright Design Center, on Friday May 9th 2024.

Located in Garrison, New York, approximately one hour north of New York City, Manitoga is the former home and 75-acre woodland garden of American industrial designer Russel Wright (1904-1976), envisioned with his wife Mary Einstein Wright (d. 1952) for their family. Manitoga is a National Historic Landmark, an Affiliate Site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and one of the few 20th-century modern homes with original landscape open to the public.

In 2021, the Russel & Mary Wright Design Gallery opened to the public, offering a permanent onsite display of the Wrights’ groundbreaking designs for the American home.

Manitoga/The Russel Wright Design Center stewards Manitoga as the embodiment of the Wright’s design philosophy and life work and celebrates good design for living in creative harmony with nature through tours, programs, events, and free year-round access to woodland trails.
