This Turkey Week, YIMBY is taking a look at some of the most prominent projects in the New York City area that have either started and stopped, or stalled altogether. We begin with the American Dream Mall, a project with a notoriously rocky history that is finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel.
A new series of renderings have been revealed for 69 Adams Street, a 26-story, 280-foot-tall mixed-use project in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Designed by Fischer + Makooi Architects and developed by The Rabsky Group, the project will span 308,145 square feet and yield 225 residential units ranging from studios to two-bedroom layouts. The property will also include ground-floor retail area and 90 parking spaces. The 17,464-square-foot lot is bound by Front Street to the north, Adams Street to the west, York Street to the south, and the elevated Manhattan Bridge roadway to the immediate east.
Façade work is progressing on Front & York, a 1.1-million-square-foot residential development at 85 Jay Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by CIM Group and LIVWRK, the project consists of a pair of 21-story residential towers that rise from a multi-story full-block podium. The property will yield 728 apartments with prices starting around $950,000.
Exterior work is complete on The Wheeler, a mixed-use development at 181 Livingston Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by Perkins Eastman and Shimoda Design Group and developed by Tishman Speyer, the project involved the construction of modern 14-story, 256-foot-tall addition atop a historic Art Deco building containing a Macy’s department store. The steel-framed addition yields 843,830 square feet of new commercial space above the Macy’s, which spans the first four floors. Offices take up the remaining 90,000 square feet and feature 16-foot-tall ceiling heights. The property is also addressed as 422 Fulton Street.
Exterior work is complete on The Symon, a 13-story condominium building at 76 Schermerhorn Street in Brooklyn Heights. Colberg Architecture served as the architect of record and Lonicera Partners, Orange Management, and The Davis Companies are the three developers of the address. The property features 59 units with interior design by Studio DB, which also led the design of the curtain wall. The project is located between Boerum Place and Court Street along the border with Boerum Hill.
