Marvel Architects and Forman Group will again present proposals to New York City’s Landmark Preservation Commission in an effort to redevelop an existing two-story building for office and retail use at 29 Jay Street in Brooklyn. Located in the DUMBO Historic District, completion of “The Forman Building” would require zoning amendments to allow for a higher than approved street wall, mixed-use designation, and facade design.
Two weeks ago, YIMBY reported on plans to build a 40-story mixed-use tower on the wedge-shaped 570 Fulton Street lot in Downtown Brooklyn. Renderings have now surfaced of the proposal, and though they are low in quality, they still reveal quite a lot about the project. The proposition would be a good step forward for Brooklyn’s densification, and the new office space will help ameliorate the Borough’s residential imbalance.
In June, Tishman Speyer announced that construction would start for their 64-story supertall office tower in the Hudson Yards district, dubbed The Spiral, so named for BIG’s staircase terrace motif. The look is indicative of the modern collaborative style of workspace the architects and developers are working to create. Today, YIMBY has an update on progress, which appears to be making swift headway. The site’s official address is 509 West 34th Street.
Morris Adjmi Architects has been hard at work, designing projects from 550 Clinton Avenue and 211 Schermerhorn Street in Downtown Brooklyn to 119-121 2nd Avenue and 110 East 16th Street in Manhattan. On top of all that, they filed permits for a new building in Williamsburg last month that will yield over 100,000 square feet. The building is at 215 North 10th Street, and today YIMBY has an exclusive reveal for a crisp new rendering of the design.
A new 40-story, mixed-use building could sprout from a wedge-shaped lot in Downtown, Brooklyn, pending approval from the NYC Department of City Planning. Zoning amendments would be required for construction to begin.
