A crowning “Welcome” at 30 Columbia Heights, better known as Panorama, is now in full view above the Brooklyn Heights waterfront. The new sign replaces the iconic Watchtower sign that stood as a signifier of the now-removed Jehovah’s Witness headquarters that formerly occupied the building.
A grand-scale illuminated ‘Welcome’ sign will soon crown 30 Columbia Heights, the former Jehovah’s Witness headquarters in Brooklyn Heights. The welcome sign will be installed at the end of the month in tall red lettering and replace the ‘Watchtower’ sign that stood above the Brooklyn waterfront for nearly 50 years.
Front and York, Morris Adjmi Architects‘ 1.1-million-square-foot residential development at 85 Jay Street, is steadily rising in in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Two construction cranes continue to lift and place materials across the wide floor plates of the reinforced concrete structure. CIM Group and LIVWRK are the developers of the 21-story project, which will yield condominiums, rentals, and retail space.
The massive rectangular-shaped project taking up a full block at 85 Jay Street has officially been dubbed “Front and York,” and today YIMBY has a full update on site progress. Bound by Front Street and York Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn, the 1.1 million square foot residential complex will soon sprout from what was one of the neighborhood’s last and largest undeveloped lots. The new building, with retail shops on the ground floor and a mixture of condominiums and rentals above, is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, and is being developed by CIM Group and LIVWRK.
Located in the Brooklyn neighborhood of DUMBO, new renderings and information have been revealed for the future site of 85 Jay Street. Bound by Jay Street, Front Street, Bridge Street and York Street, the large rectangular parcel of land was one of the biggest undeveloped sites in the neighborhood, and has long been used as a parking lot. The lot was previously sold for $345 million dollars from the Jehovah’s Witnesses three years ago. The site is now addressed as “Front and York” and will be designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by CIM Group and LIVWRK. 1.1 million square feet of condominiums, rentals and retail space is expected to result.
