Yesterday Curbed posted exciting news about two Red Hook residential conversion projects in the works by the architecture firm Adjmi and Andreoli. The first is 160 Imlay Street, the on-and-off rental project at the former New York Dock Company warehouse. The architects instead plan to renovate the warehouse into a 72-unit mixed-use condo building with a market, restaurant and artists’ studios. The previously reported January finish date has been pushed back. The second project is at the three-story warehouse at 202 Coffey Street. There the architects plan for, in Curbed’s words, “Five separate artist studios/workshops/display spaces with the interiors somewhat spruced up and the windows, currently bricked over, reopened.” Completion date: late 2013, early 2014. Because work hasn’t started up at either site yet, Hurricane Sandy didn’t damage anything there.
