Netherlands-based design firm Studio SENK teamed up with DMOO, a rendering company, to visualize a new residential tower in DUMBO, and YIMBY has a first look at the impressive concept. The glass skyscraper would stand between the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan Bridge, with a base rising from within the atrium of the recently-completed Empire Stores, and an upper portion that would finally give DUMBO an iconic presence on the overall Brooklyn skyline.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission is reviewing proposals to install a new entrance marquee at the iconic Williamsburgh Savings Bank, in Brooklyn. The property’s official address is 175 Broadway, and it was originally constructed in 1875 by American architect George B. Post. The formidable structure most notably features a large domed tower and an adjacent low-rise structure.
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.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 31 Sumpter Street in Stuyvesant Heights, Brooklyn. Located between Fulton Street and Patchen Avenue, the interior lot is one block west of the Ralph Avenue subway station, serviced by the A and C trains. Neriya Borukhov under the 31 Sumpter LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
11 Hoyt is quickly ascending over Downtown Brooklyn. The building’s sculptural and wavy facade is also making its way up the sides, and beginning to give the tower its signature look. Designed by Studio Gang Architects with Hill West serving as the architect of record, the project is being developed by Tishman Speyer while Corcoran Sunshine is marketing the residences, with interiors by Michaelis Boyd Associates. The complex will span 770,000 square feet when complete, and boast expansive views of the Downtown Brooklyn skyline and neighboring brownstone-lined streets.
