The renovation of Empire Stores along the East River waterfront in Dumbo has been ongoing since developer Midtown Equities, Rockwood Capital, and HK Organization won the bid to redevelop the property in 2013. With completion slated for November, it might seem as though the redesign by Studio V and S9 Architecture should be starting to wind down, at least a little bit. But a new video from Architect's Newspaper suggests that that's not quite the case. Although the new office and retail building's atrium is beginning to take shape, the glass panels and showy finishes are still a bit of a ways off. And that's lucky for usat least for the purpose of this videobecause this is probably the last time the buildings will resemble their 19th-century selves.
