Further proof that we can no longer have nice things. Both popular watering holes will be demolished to make room for this generic shithole. No dates have been announced for the demolition.
Plans have been announced for a new seven-story office building on the Greenpoint Waterfront, and today, YIMBY has the first renderings for the site. The project is targeted to satisfy the demand for more small Class-A office space in the rising Greenpoint and North Williamsburg areas, which have seen a significant boom in new residential development. Simon Baron Development is the developer behind the uniquely-shaped structure, and FXCollaborative is responsible for the design.
The building will yield 134,000 square feet of office space and 23,000 square feet for manufacturing. The neighborhood will benefit from new ground-floor retail, while tenants will benefit from terraces on each floor, and a shared rooftop terrace with views of Brooklyn and Manhattan. Room for storing 36 vehicles and 85 bicycles will be included on site.
