BROOKLYN - A historic park building in Bedford-Stuyvesant is getting a $2.7 million renovation.

Built in 1910, the colonnade area at the comfort station in Fulton Park once was a wide-open space for public use, but today it is caged in and mostly used for storage.

The station is slated for electrical, ventilation and plumbing improvements, as well wheelchair-accessible restroom stalls and platforms. The renovation plans also include replacing the fixed grilles with locking gates and adding security lighting inside.

Residents tell News 12 they are happy about the changes.

Pending approval, the construction is expected to begin around fall 2017 and could take up to 15 months.
