After years of sitting stagnant as a giant dirt pit, the 17-story Dock Street Dumbo project is finally rising, and it's rising quickly. Construction started this past winter, and the 290 apartments should be ready for occupancy in the first quarter of 2015. Workers are currently installing windows and the facade on the lower floors, and the tower portion is up to the 11th floor. The 50,000-square-foot school will be turned over to the city's School Construction Authority this summer, and it will welcome students in August 2016. Dumbo overlord Two Trees is the developer, and the designers are LEESER Architecture and Ismael Leyva Architects. Fifty-eight of the apartments will be affordable, with rents starting at $538 for a studio; market rate rents have not rent been released.
