The first permits are up for a ten-story mixed-use building at 98 Front Street in Dumbo, Brooklyn. The site is two blocks from the York Street Subway Station, serviced by the F trains, and five blocks away from the High Street-Brooklyn Bridge Station, serviced by the A and C trains. This gives it quick access to Manhattan and Downtown Brooklyn. Hope Street Capital will be responsible for development.
Renderings have come out depicting the removal of a single-story garage at 82 John Street, in DUMBO, Brooklyn, to be replaced with a five-story building. Permits have not been filed, so details about the project are not yet final, and the plans will go through the LPC later today.
Brooklyn’s DUMBO neighborhood has been mostly built out for several years now, but within the dense blocks to the west of the Manhattan Bridge overpass, there are still several remaining opportunities. New building applications have now been filed for the vacant lot at 85 Jay Street, which will have a total construction area of 875,505 square feet. Within that, there will be a 1,154 square-foot community facility, 60,017 square feet of commercial space, and 812,978 square feet of residential space, to be divided amongst 737 units. That would normally indicate apartments, but at an average size of over 1,100 square feet, condominiums would also seem possible. Morris Adjmi will be designing the 21-story and 250-foot-tall project, and Kushner Companies will be developing, having acquired the site alongside the Jehovah’s Witness Headquarters at 25-30 Columbia Street for $700 million last year.
Glacier Global Partners’ renovation and refurbishment of the 230,000 square-foot warehouse at 10 Jay Street is making major progress, per the latest photos from Tectonic. The 10-story building is receiving a glassy new facade designed by ODA New York, which was first revealed in a video posted by Curbed back in February of 2015. The crystalline exterior is up to the eighth floor of the structure, and completion is likely within the next year or so.
Kushner Companies, LIVWRK, and the CIM Group have closed on the purchase, for $345 million, of the 135,000-square-foot development site at 85 Jay Street, in DUMBO. The full-block property, currently vacant, could accommodate up to 1.1-million square feet of mixed-use development, the New York Post reported. The new owners plan to develop the site within current zoning laws. A project “with mixed uses” is planned, although plans are very preliminary. It was reported earlier that the site could host as many as 1,000 residential units. The team is in the process of hiring architects and consultants.
