BROOKLYN - The city is looking for developers to transform the Bedford Union Armory in Crown Heights into a community center.

The armory has been in the borough for more than a century. After being largely abandoned for decades, the city is at long last seeking to convert the hulking building into a facility that local residents can enjoy.

Borough President Marty Markowitz has pledged $1 million toward the project, after he worked for more than two years to pave the way for it. He said in a statement this week that he expects the future community center to become "the crown jewel of Crown Heights."

Developers have until Jan. 23 to submit their proposals.
