Back in February, the Wall Street Journal broke the news that Benenson Capital Partners and Rose Associates were joining forces to develop a rental tower in downtown Brooklyn, at 210 Livingston Street. Aside from the general bulk (they pegged it at 300,000 square feet), though, scant details were released
Now that a new building permit application has been filed, we can fill in some of the details.
The tower should reach 280 feet into the air, and would have 26 floors of rental apartments and ground-level retail. There would be 349 housing units divided between 310,000 square feet of net residential space, served by 112 garage parking spots. The building would also hold a bit more than 14,000 square feet of commercial space, for a total construction area of 365,000 square feet – a bit more than twice as dense as the office building that was razed to make way for it.
Handel Architects filed for the permit.
