Downtown Brooklyn may soon be getting 507 apartments for low-income residents instead of a luxury hotel.
A new restaurant row is taking shape in Dumbo, transforming former industrial space belonging to the Jehovah's Witnesses.
Some preliminary renderings are out for the tech campus Kushner Companies et al are creating in Dumbo out of the five Watchtower properties they snapped up last year for $375,000,000. Kushner, RFR Realty and LIVWRK are rebranding the interconnected buildings as “Dumbo Heights,” The New York Daily News reported yesterday.
Plans for the $100,000,000 overhaul include a gourmet market, roof deck, pet-friendly spaces, daycare facilities and bicycle storage. Rents will start at under $60 a square foot at the 1.2-million-square-foot complex. Click through the jump for some more renderings and a map of the buildings from the project’s fancy new website.
