When the old Bancroft Bank Building met the wrecking ball a few years ago, the site, at 3 West 29th Street, was tentatively planned to give rise to a residential tower designed by Moshe Safdie. In September of 2017, that changed, when HFZ Capital filed plans for a Bjarke Ingels-designed office skyscraper, as reported by YIMBY. Now, we have the exclusive reveal for the first renderings of the new building, which will apparently be even more prominent on the skyline than originally planned.
Downtown Brooklyn has seen an incredible number of new residential buildings rise up in recent years, redefining the neighborhood and boosting its overall visibility relative to the rest of the Borough.

With so many new residential buildings on the rise in Williamsburg, it’s easy to forget about office development in the neighborhood. But that’s exactly what’s in store for 107 North 1st Street.

The Melamed Architects-designed revamp will also bring a retail tenant into the first two floors.
