Plans have been sent to the Landmarks Preservation Commission for a redesign of 42 and 50 Jay Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn. The two buildings were constructed in 1921 and 1891, respectively. The proposal would reintroduce period-appropriate windowing, cleaning of the façade, and additions to both rooftops. Alloy is both designing and developing, and the site will be renamed 168 Plymouth Street once complete.
Developer Forman Ferry has proposed redeveloping an existing two-story structure with a new 11-story commercial office building with ground floor retail.

The agencies will specifically review the 150-foot proposed height of the building, which requires new zoning amendments, and how the exterior facade would impact the existing aesthetic of the surrounding neighborhood.
