Last December, YIMBY revealed the renderings for 399 Sands Street in the Brooklyn Navy Yard Industrial Park. Now, the official groundbreaking for the nine-story office building has occurred. The structure will house between 700 to 1,000 jobs once complete. It is part of the $1 billion redevelopment project dedicated to fueling New York City’s economy with infrastructure for 10,000 new jobs in manufacturing and creative businesses. The non-profit Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation (BNYDC) is realizing the project through private developers, and Steiner NYC is responsible for 399 Sands Street.

The Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development, Alicia Glen, spoke at the groundbreaking, telling the crowd, “Thanks to the City’s $40 million New York Works investment in 399 Sands Street, the Yard will continue to fuel growth, and provide manufacturing and creative jobs for generations to come.”

Dattner Architects will be responsible for designing 399 Sands Street. Renderings show an unimposing grey façade crowned by one floor of black steel curtain wall. The building will yield 412,030 square feet, including 230,000 square feet of leasable office space and a four-story, 430 car garage. Parking will be available for office tenants and customers of the BNYDC’s Wegmans supermarket, opening in 2019. The parking portion of the building will be finished around that same time, with the rest of the space opening in 2021.

Construction is already moving forward for the other structures on site. The $100 million Building 77 is expected to open this November, bringing one million square feet of new space to the area, with an expected capacity for 3,000 light manufacturing jobs.
