Michael Spinard of TS Contracting has submitted zoning amendment proposals for a 6,500-square-foot lot in Vinegar Hill, Brooklyn with the aim of developing a six-story residential building. The proposed project would take shape at 265 Front Street, located just a few blocks from the Manhattan Bridge and the East River Waterfront.

If approved, the structure would comprise 24,500 square feet, of which 19,500 square feet would be dedicated to residential use. The building is slated to have nine apartments with an average scope of 2,100 square feet. The ground level of the structure would contain 9,500 square feet designed to accommodate two retail tenants.

The lead agency that conducted an environmental review on the proposed new building has determined that the project would have no significant adverse impact on the surrounding area. The Landmarks Preservation Commission also reviewed the proposals and determined that no significant architectural elements are present at 265 Front Street, and therefore has no objections to the commencement of construction.

If approved, the project team anticipates completion by 2021 following 18 months of construction. The names of the developer and architect of record have not been released, nor have detailed renderings of the structure.

  1. Hello New York YIMBY: It is easy to see why, why it is beautiful spot on the project.

  2. Sounds like even greater crowds on our small streets,
    Even greater danger at the York Street station. Buildings go first then they scramble to see what can be done with the overburdened infrastructure sucks!

  3. Beautiful place to live
