Located in the Brooklyn neighborhood of DUMBO, new renderings and information have been revealed for the future site of 85 Jay Street. Bound by Jay Street, Front Street, Bridge Street and York Street, the large rectangular parcel of land was one of the biggest undeveloped sites in the neighborhood, and has long been used as a parking lot. The lot was previously sold for $345 million dollars from the Jehovah’s Witnesses three years ago. The site is now addressed as “Front and York” and will be designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by CIM Group and LIVWRK. 1.1 million square feet of condominiums, rentals and retail space is expected to result.
