Façade Installation Underway at 19-Story, 60-Unit Mixed-Use Project, 153 Remsen Street, Brooklyn Heights

Since being four stories in height back in February, the 19-story, 60-unit mixed-use building under construction at 153 Remsen Street, in Brooklyn Heights, has topped out and is now receiving its façade elements. The latest photo was posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. The latest permits indicate the structure encompasses 90,850 square feet. It will host 4,465 square feet of ground-floor retail and restaurant space, followed by residential units on the floors above. It’s unclear if the units will be rentals or condominiums, but they will average 1,196 square feet apiece. Amenities include a fitness center, laundry facilities, a children’s playroom, storage for 30 bikes, and a rooftop terrace. Quinlan Development and Lonicera Partners are the developers. S9 Architecture is behind the architecture. Completion is expected by the end of the year.

Development Team Acquires 11-Story Watchtower Complex at 25-30 Columbia in Brooklyn Heights, Plans Creative Office Conversion

Over the spring, a team of developers entered into contract to acquire, from the Jehovah’s Witnesses, the 11-story, 739,000-square-foot commercial complex known as the Watchtower, at 25-30 Columbia Heights, in Brooklyn Heights. The team – now a joint venture between the Kushner Companies, CIM Group, and LIVWRK – have closed on the purchase for roughly $340 million, Commercial Observer reported. The new owners plan to convert the complex into creative office space, likely similar to how some of the same developers transformed the five-building complex now dubbed DUMBO Heights. The redevelopment is expected to begin within a year. In addition to the acquisition of 25-30 Columbia Heights, the same partnership is remains in contract to buy the vacant, block-encompassing development site at 85 Jay Street, in DUMBO.
