Thanks to a YIMBY reader, we have a first look at schematics for 85 Jay Street, in DUMBO, Brooklyn. The site comprises a massive 21-story mixed-used project being developed by Kushner Companies, LIVWRK, and CIM Group. The elevation reveals a full-block development with a central courtyard and two towers rising from the southwest and northeast corners.
The venture purchased the lot for $345 million in December of 2016.
The 210-foot tall structure will yield 878,000 square feet, with 812,600 square feet dedicated to residential use, 64,270 square feet for commercial use, and 1,140 square feet for an unspecified community facility. 732 apartments will be created, averaging 1,110 square feet. Residential space will have two sections, with a lobby for rentals on the north, and for the condominiums, on the south.
Amenities include two pools, a screening room, lounge and grilling spaces, and outdoor balconies on the ninth floor. Several units on each floor will have terraces. 727 parking spaces will also be included on-site.
Morris Adjmi Architects will be responsible for the design.
CIM and Kushner Companies also joined in 2016 to purchase another site nearby for $340 million, the Jehovah’s Witnesses building.
Construction has not yet started for 85 Jay Street, but with permits recently approved, it is likely to begin soon. Completion is expected by the Summer of 2021.
