Façade installation is now up to the 17th floor on the 25-story, 714-unit mixed-use building, which topped out in October, at 300 Livingston Street, located on the corner of Bond Street in Downtown Brooklyn. The structure can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project will encompass 734,312 square feet and rise 250 feet to its main roof, or 271 feet to the top of the bulkhead.
300 Livingston Street
Back in April, new details were revealed of the 25-story, 714-unit mixed-use building under development at 300 Livingston Street, in Downtown Brooklyn. Now, the project has risen above street level, as seen in photos by Tectonic, which were taken a back in May. As previously reported, the building will eventually encompass 734,312 square feet. It will feature 55,000 square feet of retail on the ground and cellar levels, followed by residential space beginning on the second floor. The apartments should average 790 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments, and 143 of them (20 percent) will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. Amenities include a 128-car underground parking garage, laundry facilities, a yoga room, storage for 357 bikes, a pet grooming room, an outdoor terrace on the second floor (likely a courtyard), and a children’s playroom. TF Cornerstone is the developer, while Handel Architects is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2017.
Back in July of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for TF Cornerstone’s planned 25-story, 714-unit mixed-use building at 300 Livingston Street (a.k.a. 33 Bond Street), in Downtown Brooklyn. Now, Commercial Observer has the latest details on the 734,312-square-foot project. Since our last report, the developer has secured $250 million in construction financing. The new building will also have a larger retail component than reported earlier. There will be 55,000 square feet of retail across the ground and cellar levels, and grocers and gyms are already in negotiations for the space. The residential units should average 790 square feet apiece, and 20 percent of them, or 143 apartments, will rent at below market-rates. Demolition of the site’s 49,942-square-foot five-story parking garage wrapped up in early 2015. Handel Architects is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2017.
