  With many synchrotron facilities retiring or going through upgrades, what is the future of the some of the state-of-the-art equipment and the beamlines built for a specific science at these older facilities? Can the past investments continue supporting the current scientific mission? Beamlines Developed by NSLS2 (BDN) started in 2013 as the NxtGen project prior to NSLS last light on September, 30 2014. Hundreds of pieces of equipment still scientifically useful and valuable have been collected, packed and stored to become part of the new beamlines at the NSLS2 complex. CMS and TES beamlines were built in 2016 in 6 month from bare hutches to the First Light and are already doing user science. QAS, XFM, FIS/MET are taking first light in late 2017/early 2018 and users in 2018. Repurposed components have been fitted with standard NSLS2 EPICS based control systems, Delta Tau motion controllers, digital imaging. Intensity monitors and diagnostics have been equipped with new electronics. Data collection is performed via home grown customizable, beamline specific Bluesky Data Acquisition System. Status of the project and an overview of controls efforts will be presented.
