It was back in September of 2014 that YIMBY brought you word of plans for a 21-story mixed-use building at corner of Livingston Street, Boerum Place, and Red Hook Lane in Downton Brooklyn. It was in April of 2015 that demolition started and in June of 2015 that we showed you a rendering. Now, thanks to photos from our friend Tectonic, we can report that the project at 117 Livingston Street (a.k.a. 415 Red Hook Lane) has reached its second story.
The building will eventually rise to 210 feet and encompass 107,914 square feet. Of that, 94,439 square feet will be devoted to 108 residential units. That works out to an average unit size of a little over 874 square feet.
Those residential units will begin with three on the third floor, seven each on floors four through 14, and then four each on floors 15 through 21.
Amenities will include storage in the cellar and on the first floor. The third floor will have a laundry room, space for 56 bicycles, a tenant lounge, tenant fitness room, and a terrace. There will also be a roof terrace. No automobile parking is listed on the new building permit.
As this is a mixed-use building, that means room for a second use – in this case commercial, specifically 13,475 square feet of commercial space. That will go to retail space in the cellar and on the first and second floors.
As previously reported, Quinlan Development and Lonicera Partners are behind the project. It is being designed by Ennead Architects.
