Permits Filed: 120 Nassau Street



The first permits are up for a major mixed-use development in Downtown Brooklyn, located at the intersection of Nassau and Jay Streets. While the applications are filed under 120 Nassau Street, the site includes an office building at 199 Jay Street that is currently being demolished. Woods Bagot is the architect of record, and Thomas Aschmoneit of 203 Jay St. Assoc LLC is listed as the developer.

120 Nassau Street will total 290,420 square feet, and the project will be divided between residential, hotel, and ‘community facility’ components, split between two buildings. The hotel will rise eight floors and have 119 rooms, while the apartment tower will rise 32 stories, with 381 units; the Schedule A has additional floor-by-floor details.

Given the residential portion will stand 425 feet tall, 120 Nassau Street will make an impression on the greater skyline
, as the lot is located close to the edge of Downtown Brooklyn. Woods Bagot has a forward-thinking and attractive slate of recent work, and the firm’s involvement would indicate an appealing end-product at 120 Nassau Street.

At Brooklyn’s Gateway, Woods Bagot Kicks Off Construction of the Jay Street Residences



AmTrust Realty has recently kicked off construction on a 250,000-square-foot, mixed-use project near Brooklyn’s Manhattan Bridge approach. The development will be a step towards reconnecting Downtown Brooklyn to its waterfront, and, along with several other proposals, helps remedy a maelstrom of mid-century planning disasters between the two areas.

The color isn't interesting. It's the same butt ugly color they've been using in Brooklyn. & I hate the design.

Construction Update: 199 Jay Street, Downtown Brooklyn

It was in July of 2014 that YIMBY brought you word of plans for the site of an office building at 199 Jay Street, at the corner of the small section of Nassau Street before the Manhattan Bridge ramps, in Downtown Brooklyn. A month later, we showed you a rendering of the project. Since then the existing building was demolished. Other than that, however, the project has barely pierced the ground, as seen in photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic, and it has a long way to go before it achieves its 33-story design.





We’re going with 199 Jay Street because that’s the address that has been seen on the construction shed, but the latest filings are for 116 Nassau Street and we’ve referenced 213 Jay Street, 203 Jay Street, and 120 Nassau Street in the past.

As for the actual building, the developer is listed as Thomas Aschimoneit of 203 Jay St Assoc. LLC, so it could end up being 203 Jay Street. Either way, it is being designed by Woods Baget.

When we last reported on the project, the plan was for a 33-story, 425-foot-tall building and that has not changed. What has changed is the square footage and unit counts.

The initial filing called for a 290,420-square-foot development. The latest new building permit shows a smaller building, at 245,459 square feet. Residential space, however, has actually increased slightly from 230,355 square feet to 230,459 square feet. The number of units, though, has decreased form 381 to 270. So, the average unit size would be over 853 square feet.

First Look Inside Woods Bagot's Jay Street Tower: Goodbye Hotel Rooms, Hello Offices
December 13, 2016
Brooklyn’s Jay Street Residences at 203 Jay Street (120 Nassau) have steadily risen skyward since breaking ground in early 2015. But the block-sized junction at DUMBO is now giving way to a 33-story, 320,000-square-foot, mixed-use development. Recent shots from photographer Tectonic show that Woods Bagot's first New York high-rise will be more than half-way up, at roughly 22-stories. It will exhibit richly textured facade of glass, stone and metal with a fully enclosed 8-story podium, which Woods Bagot call “an intelligent facade of transforming density [that] responds to privacy and views while changing in-depth to optimize solar shading.”

I still don't like the design. & I've never seen this building, it's getting cluttered downtown.
