A rendering has been posted on-site of the planned mixed-use project under development at 8-16 Nevins Street and 299-301 Livingston Street, in Downtown Brooklyn.

When developers Adam America Real Estate, Slate Property Group, and Shenzhen-based China Vanke Co. closed on the purchase of the site in late 2015, a 33-story, 150-unit building was said to be planned. Since then, the project’s floor count has been reduced, with the latest building permits indicating a 28-story, 147-unit structure is in the works. It should be noted the floor count of the building in the latest rendering is 25 stories, indicating plans may not be finalized at this point.

According to plans at the Department of Buildings, the structure will encompass 140,296 square feet and rise 345 feet to its bulkhead pinnacle. There will be 6,657 square feet of retail space across the ground and cellar floors, followed by apartments, averaging 800 square feet apiece, on the second through 27th floors.

Stephen B. Jacobs Group is the architect of record. Following the demolition of four three-story mixed-use buildings last year, the 13,519-square-foot site is now vacant. Completion on the new building is expected by the end of 2018.

  1. Hello..YIMBY..revealed 28-story on work in progress residential mixed-use project, in Downtown Brooklyn filled for development.

  2. Last I checked they do not have a proper bridge/shed around the site. I have photos of 2 times I passed by while they were lifting heavy pipes and similar weighty objects by a small crane from a truck parked next to the site on the street. Construction workers were requesting pedestrians halt while they did this and then waving them forward when they deemed it safe. If it doesn’t improve today I’ll call the DOB who will shut down construction till the failure to comply with the law is corrected.

  3. The previous plan included a pedestrian connection between Grove Place and Nevins Street, which was a great idea. I’m sorry to see that this new rendering doesn’t seem to include that.
