Alloy Development‘s 46-unit residential conversion project at 168 Plymouth Street is taking shape in the DUMBO, Brooklyn Historic District following approvals from the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The steel structure of the addition is being assembled atop the 99-year-old Concrete Daylight Factory, aka 42 Jay Street. Simultaneously, the adjacent 129-year-old Brick & Timber Building, aka 50 Jay Street, is also getting a one-story expansion.
Photos show the current state of progress on the project. The new upper section spans the two addresses and will house the upcoming penthouses. The masonry façade and windows are being preserved and refurbished.
Residential units are designed by Alloy Development’s in-house team and come in four variants: “Brick and Timber” lofts featuring restored and exposed brick walls, beams, and columns, as well as large factory windows; “Daylight Factory” lofts with exposed concrete beams and columns, and the same oversized factory windows; “Townhouses,” duplexes that begin on the ground floor of both historic structures and come with a private separate entrance on Jay Street; and the “Penthouses” with private rooftop terraces, gas grills, and wine fridges. Homes range from one- to four-bedroom spreads and start at $1.4 million. The price and square footage for the Penthouses have not been revealed yet.
Amenities for the property include a fitness center, a private courtyard designed by landscape architecture studio Future Green, a landscaped common roof terrace with cabanas and outdoor cooking areas, a fitness room, bicycle storage, and package storage units. The closest subway is the F train, located to the south at the York Street station. A diverse swath of dining, retail, and entertainment options surround the address in DUMBO and are all within walking distance. Most of these destinations are found to the immediate west between the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge. 168 Plymouth Street is also one block away from the eastern tail end of Brooklyn Bridge Park that provides plentiful green space and views of Lower Manhattan and the East River waterfront.
Move-ins at 168 Plymouth Street are expected next winter.
