Excavation is underway at 200 Montague Street, aka 192 Montague Street, the site of a 20-story residential building in the Borough Hall Skyscraper Historic District of Brooklyn Heights. Designed by Beyer Blinder Belle, the 140,700-square-foot structure will rise from a 46,000-square-foot plot that was previously occupied by a four-story commercial building. James M. Patterson of Ancora Engineering is listed as the applicant of record.
Construction has topped out on Morris Adjmi Architects’ Front & York, a 1.1-million-square-foot residential project at 85 Jay Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Developed by CIM Group and LIVWRK, the 21-story structure spans a full block and will yield 728 apartments with prices starting around $950,000.
BKSK Architects‘ approved plans that were last submitted to the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC), which call for a renovation and expansion of 53 Pearl Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn, await construction. The team revealed its latest design for the 140-year-old Italianate-style structure a year ago after initial plans from March 2019 that called for a tall multi-story addition at the rear of the property, were denied for being both “out of scale” and “contextually inappropriate.” The building was once a factory for the Masury Paint Company and was transformed into rental apartments several years ago.
Curtain wall installation is progressing on One Clinton, a 36-story mixed-use building in Brooklyn Heights. Alternately addressed as 280 Cadman Plaza West, the Flatiron-esque structure is designed by Marvel Architects and developed by Hudson Companies and will span 295,000 square feet with 134 residential units. The project will also house a 9,000-square-foot STEM research center and One Clinton Street Library, a new public library that replaces the former Brooklyn Heights Library that once stood on the site.
Construction has gone vertical at 30 Front Street, a 26-story mixed-use building in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Fortis Property Group, the 270-foot-tall building will contain 74 apartments, averaging 2,400 square feet apiece.
