In July, YIMBY unveiled renderings of WeWork’s planned office building at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Now developer Boston Properties has filed new building applications for the project, named Dock 72, at 63 Flushing Avenue.

The 17-story office building will hold 556,109 square feet of commercial space, according to the filing. It seems that WeWork has scaled back slightly, because the coworking company announced plans for a 675,000-square-foot building in July. The structure will reach 266 feet into the air on an empty, 60,000-square-foot dry dock that extends out into Wallabout Bay.

S9 Architecture, an affiliate of Perkins Eastman, is designing the building, which will have a series of stepped setbacks and roof gardens on the upper floors. The filing includes those communal terraces on on the seventh through 10th floors, as well as the 12th, 13th, 15th and 16th floors. The lobby, cafeteria, and a lounge will fill the ground floor, and a the second floor will have a “health and wellness studio,” another lounge, and mechanicals (which can’t be located on the first floor because of flooding). The remaining stories will host office space and conference rooms.

There will also be a parking lot with room for 379 cars.

WeWork will anchor the building with a 220,000-square-foot lease and curate 35,000 square feet of amenities, including a massage room, specialty food vendors, a basketball court and a rooftop conference center.

The office space company is partnering with Boston Properties, Rudin Development and the Navy Yard to develop the building. They expect to break ground by the end of the year.

  1. The design architect is S9 Architecture not Perkins. Perkins is just the AOR.
