Renderings have been revealed for an 11-story commercial building at 167 Plymouth Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Located at the intersection of Jay Street and Plymouth Street, the corner lot is also addressed as 29 Jay Street. The site is located three blocks south of the Jay Street subway station, serviced by the F train. Edward J. Minskoff Equities under the Jay Street Office LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Renderings of the office building depict a light concrete massing with an even grid of windows, akin to the industrial buildings of the neighborhood. Upon closer inspection, the design features a structural frame with diagonal cross bracing. The façade has a faceted texture that plays with the light and shadows of the streetscape. The exterior skin is made of glass fiber reinforced concrete and the steel structural frame minimizes the use of columns and shear walls, extending the reach of natural light throughout the edifice.
The proposed 148-foot-tall development will yield 220,767 square feet, with 184,467 square feet designated for commercial space. The concrete-based structure will also have a cellar and a 20-foot-long rear yard.
Marvel Architects is listed as the architect of record.
Demolition permits were filed in June of this year. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
