The Brooklyn Nets announce plans for a new training center

The Brooklyn Nets, one of New York’s two professional basketball franchises, has unveiled plans for a new practice facility to be built in the Sunset Park neighborhood of Brooklyn.

Designed by MANICA with Mancini Duffy serving as architect of record, the 70,000 sq ft facility will include two basketball courts, a weight room, a training pool and two hydro pools, a rooftop entertainment space, an 18-seat multimedia theatre, and a 3,000 sq ft hospitality players’ lounge.

There will also be a media interview/workroom. The exterior of the building will be dark metal and brick with large expanses of glass. The interior spaces will have an ‘industrial vibe’ with recycled wood and tile finishes. The idea is to convey ‘the gritty manufacturing history of the area while reflecting an eco-friendly mentality’.

The facility is expected to open for the 2015-16 National Basketball Association (NBA) Season and will be named after the Hospital for Special Surgery, which has exclusive naming rights
