When WeWork announced its plans to anchor a 675,000-square-foot office building on a vacant dry dock at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, a few critics came out of the woodwork to lament the yard’s gradually disappearing industrial tenants, like modular housing builder Capsys.
Two months ago, YIMBY brought you the first look at WeWork’s big mixed-use development on the waterfront in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Now we have an official rendering and more details on the 16-story office building, dubbed Dock 72 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
In 2013, it was reported that WeWork was in talks for 500,000 square feet at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. YIMBY has now obtained plans for a new mixed-use structure on the site, which would host both a WeWork/WeLive, with the design coming from S9/Perkins Eastman.
