Greenpoint’s iconic ACME Smoked Fish Factory has now entered a mandatory public review process known as ULURP or the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure. This phase is a major step forward for the expansion which required zoning text amendments, an environmental assessment statement, and initial approvals from the Department of City Planning.
New renderings from Gensler reveal updated proposals to expand the Acme Smoked Fish Factory in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The renderings are contained within a detailed Environmental Assessment Statement, which examines the potential effects of the proposed expansion on the surrounding neighborhood.
25 Kent Avenue in North Williamsburg, Brooklyn is designed by Hollwich Kushner with Gensler as the design development architect.

The project is developed by Rubenstein Partners and Heritage Equity Partners, who are continuing to fill the property and aim for full occupancy by the middle of 2021. 25 Kent Avenue is the first commercial office building to be constructed in the area in more than 40 years.
