Thor Equities released someone leaked renderings of The Hook, a 376,00-square-foot mega-mall on the site of the old Revere Sugar Refinery site in Red Hook. If built, the project would be the biggest retail development in New York City in more than 20 years. Thor reportedly has commitments for financing but not tenants (though BJ’s has long been rumored to be the anchor). For more renderings and a detailed explanation of the plan, check out either Curbed or Racked.
Update: Here’s a statement from a Thor spokesperson…
“The images made public today are simply draft sketches and do not accurately represent Thor Equities proposal for the 280 Richards Street site. Thor is committed to ensuring that its proposed commercial project compliments the revitalization already underway throughout Red Hook, including the continuous public waterfront access that began with the six-acre esplanade adjacent to Ikea Brooklyn. We look forward to working with City officials and the community to ensure that our plans work seemlessly with other developments to revitalize the Red Hook waterfront.

OK, it’s really narrow and there are a lot of down lights but this Greenwood Heights house at 396A 19th Street looks pretty cute to us. Goes to show what some great rugs and Timorous Beasties wallpaper can do, right? That bath looks pretty slick, and we also like the new unpainted clapboard exterior. We’re not so […]
