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.
The Jersey City Redevelopment Agency is now reviewing proposals to construct West Side Crossing, a four-tower complex with more than 3,000 residential units. Located on an eight-acre assemblage near the Hackensack riverfront, West Side Crossing is the latest project from Bushburg Properties, which appointed Marchetto Higgins Stieve as architect of record.
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.
In February, YIMBY brought you news of Bushburg Properties’ commercial conversion planned at 65 Porter Avenue, which would turn a single-story, 32,620 square-foot warehouse into a commercial building featuring retail and offices in southern East Williamsburg. Now, Brownstoner has renderings, and the building will have commercial units ranging from 630 to 5,000 square feet. A new façade is in store, and future tenants can expect to move in starting January 2016. Michael Avramides Architects is designing.
