The Wall Street Journal reports that a yet another new tower is coming to Downtown Brooklyn. Benenson Capital Partners and Rose Associates are partnering on a 300,000-square-foot mixed-use development that’ll house both rental apartments and retail space. The former 1920s office building at 210 Livingston Street pictured above, catty-corner to Macy’s, has already been demolished and is currently a pile of rubble, but a groundbreaking for the new building has yet to be scheduled. (No new building permit has been filed with the DOB yet.) The owners considered conversion to dorms or offices before settling on apartments, because come on, that’s where the action is.
210 Livingston will join tallboys 388 Bridge Street (complete!), Avalon Willoughby West (under construction), and oh-so-many more towers that are rising in the area. Not to mention the latest news that Junior’s will soon get topped with condos. The neighborhood that never sleeps, DoBro is.
