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.
Almost a year after WeWork announced its $850 million acquisition of the Lord & Taylor Building, the Landmarks Preservation Commission will now review plans to renovate and refurbish the iconic site, which will eventually serve as WeWork’s new global headquarters.
In an exclusive reveal, co-developers CIM Group and LIVWRK have released new renderings of their forthcoming condominium property at 111 Montgomery in Crown Heights, Brooklyn to YIMBY. The developers have also launched a teaser site for prospective buyers.
