The former 11-story home of the city’s Human Resources Association is now nothing more than a rubble-strewn lot at 210 Livingston Street in downtown Brooklyn, as demolition that began last summer finally finished. The Wall Street Journal published a photo of the final bits of the building being taken down last month and reported that two developers are planning a mixed-use high-rise for the site. Benenson Capital Partners and Rose Associates want to construct a 300,000-square-foot tower with rental apartments and ground-floor retail, according to the Journal. No new building permits have been filed yet.
The development site is two blocks from City Point, the huge project whose second phase is going up now. Right now this stretch of Livingston is home to discount stores, furniture stores and the gigantic Macy’s.
