After years of delays, Two Trees' huge Dock Street Dumbo project is finally on the up and up (and moving quite quickly), but the developer has not released any new renderings since things started moving along last year, save for the blurry image that was posted on the construction fence, leaving everyone wondering if the 2008 vision still stood. Well we can wonder no longer. The marketing team for the 290-unit building sent along the first update image. The vantage point is what one would have while standing under the Brooklyn Bridge at the corner of Front and Dock Streets. Clearly, the facade will be glassy and reflective, as the rendering shows the bridge on the side of the building.
The building will be ready for occupancy
by the first quarter of before 2015, and Two Trees will begin leasing this fall. Rents have not been released for the market rate units, but the 58 affordable units will start around $500 for a studio. LEESER Architects and Ismael Leyva Architects created the building, which consists of a 17-story tower, a shorter nine-story building, and a 50,000-square-foot school. As the rendering shows, the 300-seat middle school runs along Front Street and Dock Street, with the residential buildings fronting on Dock and Water Streets, giving the building its address, 60 Water Street. The ground floor on Water will also be home to retail.
UPDATE: Things are moving so quickly, that the timeline for completion has actually be moved up. The marketing reached out to say that the building will be ready for occupancy before 2015, not during the first quarter of next year.
