The New York Times reports Steiner NYC is planning to redevelop the dilapidated site of Admiral’s Row, at the corner of Flushing Avenue and Navy Street at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. A 74,000 square-foot Wegmans is planned in a four-story, 126,000 square-foot building along Flushing Avenue. A 78,000 square-foot building is also being restored at the southwest corner of the site, but the majority of the other structures will be demolished. Opening is expected in 2017.
While Extell has avoided posting any information on-site or online for 217 West 57th Street, YIMBY has brought you two sets of plans for the building, with the most recently obtained versions (dated June of 2014) depicting a 1,795-foot pinnacle. We have now obtained an official rendering Extell is using for the project, dated from this March, confirming it will look almost identical to both versions previously revealed by YIMBY as well as the image of the tower created in-house at Smith + Gill.
