Ferrara Brothers is planning to begin construction later this year on a new concrete production facility at 740 Third Avenue, located between 23rd and 24th streets in Sunset Park. The New York City Economic Development Corporation selected the Ferrara Brothers to utilize the 102,247-square-foot waterfront industrial site.

Filings were recently submitted to the Buildings Department for a five-story, 128-foot-tall plant, DNAinfo reported. The structure would also include 1,468 square feet of office space and a 3,373-square-foot “washout building.” Boston-based RODE Architects Inc. is the architect of record. The facility will be powered by compressed natural gas (CNG). The CNG fueling station will be available to the public.
