Construction is now two floors above ground at 30-60 Front Street, a 26-story mixed-use building in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Fortis Property Group, the 270-foot-tall project will yield 74 apartments, averaging 2,400 square feet apiece. The site is bound by Front Street to the north, Washington Street to the nearby east, and York Street to the south.
Recent photos show the first couple of reinforced concrete floors in the process of settling. The superstructure is being buttressed with a large amount of form work and metal scaffolding, while steel rebar for the forthcoming columns and walls stands protruding upward. Despite its current low-rise height, the large scope of the project is already apparent when viewed through construction fence at the southern perimeter.
Metal clips are in place on the floor plates of the lower levels in preparation for the installation of the curtain wall. The rendering doesn’t provide much indication as to the makeup of the façade, though it will likely incorporate floor-to-ceiling glass arranged in a staggered and irregular pattern across the entire exterior. This envelope pattern is depicted in the preliminary rendering, which highlights the prominent curved massing and profile of 60 Front Street.
YIMBY previously reported that permits call for 177,900 of the building’s 360,000 square feet to be allocated to residential use, followed by 72,500 square feet for community facilities. The remaining floor area will likely be used for the proposed parking facility, which will have a total capacity of 416 vehicles. The 22nd and 26th floor will contain full-floor units, while two duplex penthouses will span the 24th and 25th floors. Amenities include a residential lounge, a sauna and spa, a yoga room, and a sixth-floor swimming pool that will sit adjacent to recreational space.
A completion date was last spotted on the construction board for December 2021.
