Two Trees’ large Dock Street Dumbo project rising next to the Brooklyn Bridge has a new rendering, which more clearly shows what the buildings will look like. Curbed published the new view of the 290-unit development, which will apparently be quite reflective. 

The property will encompass a 17-story tower, a nine-story building, and a 50,000-square-foot middle school, as reported.

Construction is pretty far along. Below are some new photos of the buildings rising on the construction site, which we snapped yesterday.


The first few rows of windows are going in at Two Trees’ Dock Street Dumbo project, which will include a 17-story apartment building and a school. The glassy tower at 60 Water Street will house 290 rentals, 58 of which will be affordable. Affordable rents range from $538 for a studio to $893 for two-bedrooms, as we reported when the housing lottery opened in February.

There will also be a shorter seven-story building and a 50,000-square-foot, 300-seat public middle school. Designed by Ismael Levya Architects and LEESER Architecture, the development is so close to the bridge that you could probably “tag it from the Brooklyn Bridge,” as McBrooklyn points out.

Two Trees’ 60 Water in Dumbo Now Taking Applications for Affordable Housing [Brownstoner]


The Water Street Apartments at 60 Water Street in Dumbo are now taking applications for affordable units there. Construction on the Two Trees development, known as Dock Street Dumbo, started in 2012. The 18-story mixed-use development will have 300 rental units in total, including 58 affordable units. The affordable units will range from studios to two-bedrooms.

Monthly rents will start at $538 for a studio and go up as high as $893 for some two-bedroom units, according to an email sent out by Community Board Two. Income caps range from approximately $23,000 a year for a studio to $42,000 a year for a family of four. Applications must be postmarked by April 7.
