Last spring, All Year Management filed applications for a seven-story, mixed-use commercial hub at 71 White Street, in East Williamsburg. The 79,365 square-foot project would feature a 112-key hotel, an amphitheater, retail space, and restaurants, according to Arch Daily, who also has renderings. The graffitied façade on the existing single-story warehouse will be preserved, and retail space will span the ground and second floors. In the back of the building, an open-air, second-story level will feature additional access to businesses as well as the amphitheater. The hotel will occupy the upper five floors, and will include a variety of suites and a rooftop bar. ODA Architecture is behind the design.

A new office building could measure 280,000 square feet, and would include multiple tenants and ground-floor retail space, according to The Real Deal. The existing warehouse is currently being leased as warehouse, storage, and office space. The deal is expected to close in February.
