Under construction for more than a year, Brooklyn’s 56,000-square-foot project City Center project on Memphis Avenue experienced supply chain issues and material shortages that will delay its completion.
The new $26.4 million city hall/police station was supposed to be completed by December with an early January move-in date.
“We’re now looking at Jan. 23 as the completion date,” Brooklyn Mayor Katie Gallagher said. “There’s some detention equipment for the jail portion that was a little bit behind so there might be a couple-week delay -- the very latest, mid-February.
“As far as costs, there’s been small miscellaneous increases with things but nothing astronomical where it would make a huge impact on our budget. Besides that, it’s moving along nicely.”
Funding for the project includes County Council contributing $750,000 in ARPA (American Rescue Plan Act) money.
