    New things are happening at the never-ending development of the Admiral’s Row site at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

    A new rendering reveals developer Steiner NYC plans to add a nine-story building to the complex, as the Commercial Observer was the first to report. Its address will be 399 Sands Street.

    The first eight floors will include a mix of parking and light industrial, while the top floor will be offices, according to DOB filings. The rendering shows what appears to be green space on the roof.

    Dattner Architects are behind the design. They previously worked with Steiner on the 53-story building at 333 Schermerhorn Street in Downtown Brooklyn, dubbed “The Hub.”

    Steiner filed plans for the Admiral’s Row complex in 2016. A recent visit showed that all but one of the 10 historic houses on the six-acre site at Flushing Avenue and Navy Street have been demolished to prepare for construction of a Wegmans grocery store, parking and factories.

    They also developed the Navy Yard complex for related company Steiner Studios, the movie-making firm and the Navy Yard’s biggest tenant.

    Constructed between the 1860s and 1901, the houses of Admiral’s Row served as residences for officers of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The Navy Yard closed in 1966 and the houses were vacated in the 1970s. They languished for decades, abandoned and decaying. Ownership of the site was finally transferred from the federal government to the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation in 2012.
