BROOKLYN - A new music venue is ready to getting ready to open in Williamsburg after raising $16 million it needed to finish construction.

The Original Music Workshop, or OMW, is slated to open in the fall of 2015.

Right now, the former sawdust factory looks like a construction site. But once work is complete, it will be a combination of a club and a concert hall.

The OMW will be able to hold an audience of up to 350 people for anything from a solo vocal recital to a 70-piece orchestra recording session.
