Landmarks-Approved New Building Rises on Old Fulton Street in Dumbo

A new building is rising at 9 Old Fulton Street in Dumbo, a deep but narrow lot that’s been empty since before the block was landmarked. The four-story building will have three apartments and 1,224 square feet of commercial space with a restaurant, according to permits issued last year. But construction might be paused for the moment, after the city issued a partial stop work order late last month. 

Thomas van den Bout of N/Vdesign architecture is designing the project, which looks like it will fit in with the block perfectly. The 1,387-square-foot plot once housed a building from the 1840s, but it was demolished sometime before the Fulton Ferry District was landmarked in 1977. Landmarks approved the new design in 2010 after a series of public hearings.
