The Brooklyn Navy Yard’s Wegmans grocery store will move into a five-story, 250,000-square-foot building with the upper floors dedicated to light manufacturing space.

Steiner NYC, the developer behind the Navy Yard’s Steiner Studios, filed plans for the building with an address of 21 Flushing Avenue, according to an application recorded with the Department of Buildings Tuesday.

The plans call for a supermarket on the first floor and mezzanine level, with light manufacturing space on floors two through five of the 248,489-square-foot building. A roughly 100,000-square-foot parking lot with 246 spaces is also in the works.

A representative for Steiner was not immediately available for comment. The developer announced last year plans to bring a 74,000-square-foot Wegmans to the Navy Yard, the supermarket chain’s first store in New York City.

The building will rise on the southwest corner of the Navy Yard in an area called Admiral’s Row, which is now home to Civil War-era buildings.

Last week Steiner filed plans for three new retail buildings on the site with the addresses 1 Flushing Avenue, 3 Flushing Avenue and 25 Navy Street, as The Real Deal previously reported.
