Digging for Gold at City Tech's Klitgord Auditorium

City Tech's Klitgord Auditorium building at Jay and Tillary Streets in Downtown Brooklyn is scheduled to be replaced with a huge new building (or buildings) containing six hundred units of housing -- developed by Forest City Ratner -- as well as 300,000 square feet for academic-office use.

Though details have been hard to come by, the plan is proceeding apace: over the last week the Jersey Boring and Drilling Co. conducted test borings around the auditorium as part of the subsurface investigation of the site.

The building will be designed by architect Renzo Piano. It could be nearly as big as Miss Brooklyn.
