Work has begun on the expansion and redevelopment of the historic Empire State Dairy Company Building at 2840 Atlantic Avenue in East New York. Designed by Dattner Architects and developed by The Moinian Group and Bushburg, the project involves the partial gutting of the existing low-rise building to support a 14-story tower with 320 residential units, 12,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, and a new charter school. The entire property will comprise 370,000 square feet.

The Moinian Group and Bushburg have successfully closed on a $105 million construction loan to complete 2840 Atlantic Avenue, a rising property in East New York, Brooklyn that will include residential and affordable housing units, community space, lower-level retail, and 109 parking spaces.
Following initial feedback from the Landmarks Preservation Commission, Dattner Architects is scheduled for another round of public hearings to present plans for a major restoration and expansion of the former Empire State Dairy building at 2840 Atlantic Avenue in East New York. New renderings of the project reveal a modified façade, reorganization of rooftop mechanicals, and slightly altered window systems.
Proposals to expand and redevelop the historic Empire State Dairy Building in East New York, Brooklyn are now in review by the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission. Located at 2840 Atlantic Avenue, the proposed development from Bushburg Properties includes an extensive restoration of the building’s poorly maintained façade, partial demolition of two adjacent structures, and a new 14-story residential tower that cantilevers above the Empire State Dairy Building, an official New York City landmark.
On March 8, the East New York Savings Bank, Parkway Branch, in East New York, Brooklyn was designated the first city landmark of 2016. That same day, the former Empire State Dairy Company complex, also in East New York, was added to the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s calendar. On Tuesday, the designation process continued.
