Work is continuing on the loft conversion and two-story expansion of 168 Plymouth Street in the DUMBO, Brooklyn Historic District. Led by Alloy Development, the development will bring 46 units to a 100-year-old structure that was once the home of the Concrete Daylight Factory at 42 Jay Street. The adjacent 130-year-old Brick & Timber Building at 50 Jay Street is also part of the project and is undergoing renovations as well as a one-story expansion. The site is located at the southwestern corner of Plymouth and Jay Streets, a short walk from the East River and Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Recent photographs show that the black netting and scaffolding that once covered the eastern elevations of both structures has been largely disassembled, with the exception of the taller façade of 42 Jay Street. The green sidewalk scaffolding is still standing, while work on the upper-level additions has moved along steadily.
168 Plymouth Street’s homes are being designed by Alloy Development’s in-house team and will come in four unique styles: “Brick and Timber” lofts featuring restored and exposed brick walls, beams, and columns, and tall factory windows; “Daylight Factory” lofts with exposed concrete beams and columns, and the same oversized factory windows; “Townhouses,” duplexes that begin on the ground floor of both historic structures and come with a private separate entrance on Jay Street; and the “Penthouses” with private rooftop terraces, gas grills, and wine fridges. The one- to four-bedroom spreads start at $1.4 million, while the three Penthouses currently available range from $3.74 million to $6.85 million and each come with private outdoor terraces. Residential amenities include a fitness center, a private courtyard designed by landscape architecture studio Future Green, a landscaped common roof terrace with cabanas and outdoor cooking areas, a fitness room, bicycle storage, and package storage units.
Construction on 168 Plymouth Street will likely finish and open for occupancy sometime next year.
