Crystal Window & Door Systems played a key role in the recent restoration and conversion of a major Brooklyn property. Located at 341 39th Street, Sunset Yards is a newly renovated 200,000-square-foot, 10-story structure that converted a 1920s vintage warehouse, and attached seven-story building, into modern open office spaces with trendy, appealing industrial style finishes.
