For 25 years, the New Warsaw Bakery operated at 585 Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint, earning the distinction of the neighborhood's oldest Polish bakery. But in May, the owners said they were movingthough they promised to reopenand now Brownstoner reports that the building has sold for $4.7 million. What will replace the bakery? Why, new apartments, of course. Plans for a new building were filed by Chatham Development Company in November. They call for a two-tower, 14-unit project that will rise seven stories. There will be retail on the ground floor, 17 underground parking spaces, and amenity space in each tower, as well as a rooftop terrace.
Permits list Stephen B. Jacobs as the architect of record, so we can expect a basic, glassy tower à la Jacobs' other work, the Edge or 8-16 Nevins Street. No renderings have been released yet, but given the dueling towers and large sitethe lot stretches through to Lorimer Street between Nassau and Driggs avenueswe're really interested to see what this one looks like.
