33-Story, 270-Unit Mixed-Use Project Rises to 24th Floor at 120 Nassau Street, Downtown Brooklyn

Construction is now 24 stories above street level on the 33-story, 270-unit mixed-use building under development at 120 Nassau Street, located on the corner of Jay Street in Downtown Brooklyn. The progress on construction can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the 425-foot-tall tower will measure 312,093 square feet. The base will include 57,904 square feet of commercial space, in the form of retail on the ground floor and office space on floors two through eight. The residential units elsewhere in the tower should average 854 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. The Clarett Group is the developer and Woods Bagot is the architect. Completion can probably be expected in late 2017.

33-Story, 270-Unit Mixed-Use Building Reaches Seventh Floor at 120 Nassau Street, Downtown Brooklyn

Since it was entirely below-grade back in January, construction is now up to the seventh floor on the 33-story, 270-unit mixed-use building planned at 120 Nassau Street (a.k.a. 199 Jay Street), in Downtown Brooklyn. The latest photo is courtesy of Tectonic, who posted it to the Forums. The latest building permits indicate a 313,093-square-foot, 425-foot-tall structure is in the works. It will include retail space on the ground floor, office space on parts of the second through eighth floors, and residential units across the rest of the second through eighth floors, as well as the 10th through 32nd floors. The units should average 854 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. A slew of amenities will accommodate the apartments. The Clarett Group is the developer and Woods Bagot is behind the architecture. Completion can probably be expected in 2017 or 2018.

Construction Update: 199 Jay Street, Downtown Brooklyn

It was in July of 2014 that YIMBY brought you word of plans for the site of an office building at 199 Jay Street, at the corner of the small section of Nassau Street before the Manhattan Bridge ramps, in Downtown Brooklyn. A month later, we showed you a rendering of the project. Since then the existing building was demolished. Other than that, however, the project has barely pierced the ground, as seen in photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic, and it has a long way to go before it achieves its 33-story design.
