New photos from the ODA-designed conversion of 10 Jay Street offer a first look at the interior of the boldly reimagined structure. Located on the shores of DUMBO, Brooklyn, the landmarked property was constructed in 1898 and originally served as the Arbuckle Brothers Sugar Refinery. In 1925 the building was converted to a winery, but by end of the decade, one of its masonry facades had been torn off and the exposed building fell into disrepair.

Glacier Global Partners’ renovation and refurbishment of the 230,000 square-foot warehouse at 10 Jay Street is making major progress, per the latest photos from Tectonic. The 10-story building is receiving a glassy new facade designed by ODA New York, which was first revealed in a video posted by Curbed back in February of 2015. The crystalline exterior is up to the eighth floor of the structure, and completion is likely within the next year or so.
The New York City landmarks law was signed 50 years ago this year. So, what better time to talk about some of its successes? Plenty of great structures, such as the Empire State Building, completed in 1931 as a multi-tenant office building, are easy to keep relevant and functioning. Others, however, become obsolete and can no longer perform their originally intended purpose. That’s where adaptive reuse comes in. If you haven’t heard the term, it’s when an old structure is adapted for a new use. It’s often how we are saving our great city.
Earlier this year, Glacier Global Partners received approval from the LPC to convert the 10-story former warehouse at 10 Jay Street, in Dumbo, into a 46 condominiums, but now the developer is planning a completely commercial building, with roughly 200,000 square feet of offices and retail spaces. The conversion will retain the approved exterior changes, which had been designed by ODA Architecture. CBRE is marketing the commercial spaces, according to The Real Deal.
