Demolition Planned for Seven-Story Office Building in Downtown Brooklyn


    A demolition application was filed December 31 to take down a seven-story office building at the corner of Jay and Nassau Streets. The building at 199 Jay Street sits on the edge of downtown Brooklyn and Dumbo on a 17,085-square-foot lot that is 175.92 feet by 100 feet.

    There are no recent sales in public records, and permits list the owner as Amtrust Realty, which purchased the building in 2006. The demo permit hasn’t been issued yet because there’s no plan exam. (The top of the application has a note that reads “application processed — no plan exam.”)

    The property is located next to busy traffic on Jay Street and an exit from the Manhattan Bridge. DOB records indicate it was built in 1913. GMAP
