At the moment, the warehouse at 201 Water Street is a three-story building also known as the Jay Street Arts Building. If the owner has his way at an upcoming meeting of the Landmarks Preservation Commission, though, it will become a six-story residential building in new development-heavy Dumbo. The architect on the DOB permit? None other than Karl Fischer. The plan is for 126 units, with alterations to the windows and masonry openings and the construction of a rooftop addition. The DOB already disapproved the plans, according to Brownstoner, but no one says no to Karl Fischer for long.
