It's All Over for Admiral's Row: ShopRite Coming to Navy Yard

New, 31 comments

We knew this day would eventually arrive. Hot on the heels of a deal to bring an upscale supermarket to polarizing Downtown Brooklyn condo tower Toren, the Bloomberg administration has struck an agreement to bring a ShopRite to the Brooklyn Navy Yard, the Post reports. It's the last nail in Admiral's Row's $60 million coffin. Nine historic buildings will be demolished, and the developer will be required to preserve only the Timber Shed on Flushing Avenue and Admiral Row's oldest house, Building B. So when is Admiral's Row getting its three-volley salute? Groundbreaking should happen in early 2012, with the project finished by 2013. At right is what Admiral's Row looks like these days, but what will it look like three years from now? Check out the rendering on the jump.
