Excavation and the insertion of pilings have commenced for a new 26-story, mixed-use structure at 30 Front Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Hill West Architects will be responsible for the design, while Fortis Property Group is the developer of the 360,000-square-foot project that will stand 270 feet tall and come with 74 apartments, averaging 2,400 square feet apiece.
The first stages of excavation at 25 Columbus Drive are apparent as the asphalt from the former parking lot is now being ripped up. This will become the future site of a new mixed-use complex that will rise 626 feet tall and 57 floors high. Handel Architects is designing the proposed structure, while Mack Cali is the developer of the downtown Jersey City project. A total of 750 rental apartments, a 35,000-square-foot privately-funded public school for levels pre-K through first grade, four storefronts covering 16,485 square feet of retail space, and a public plaza will soon be built.

The 200,000-square-foot mixed-use building contains ground-floor retail space, tenant amenities, and large-scale murals by Brooklyn-based artist Mike Perry, called Park Sunset. Madison Realty Capital is the developer of the site.
Work on 111 Varick Street’s reinforced concrete structure is making swift progress in Hudson Square, recently surpassing the first of several setbacks.

The rental project is being designed by S9 Architecture and developed by Madigan Development. It will contain 100 affordable and market-rate units, as well as ground-floor retail space. CM & Associates is in charge of construction.
