SALEM, Mass. (AP) — A New York City architectural firm has been chosen to design part of a $200 million expansion at a Salem museum.

The Salem News reports that (http://bit.ly/16JkvCR ) Ennead Architects won a competition among five firms for the work at the Peabody Essex Museum. Ennead recently completed an addition to the Yale University Art Gallery.

Peabody Essex chief executive Dan Monroe said he wanted a firm that would be responsive to the museum's direction.

The part of the expansion to be designed by Ennead will add 175,000 square feet, including for new galleries and space for public events. That phase of the project has a 2019 completion date.

The first phase of the project includes renovations and a rooftop penthouse to house mechanical and electrical system. The renovations are expected to open to the public in November.
