One block north of its recently sold out condominium conversion of the Fancy Basket Company warehouse in Dumbo, Alloy Development is planning a similar conversion of a circa-1900 stable and storage building at 185 Plymouth Street, Brownstoner reported. The plans must be approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission in a meeting next Tuesday.
The western Dumbo development comes in the midst of the area’s residential boom. Alloy intends to build nine or 10 large family units, most with outdoor space, around an interior courtyard, which can be seen from all units, according to AJ Pires, a partner and vice president of the firm. Half of the apartments will have water views, he added.
Dumbo’s community board already approved facade changes to the structure and a rooftop addition for two penthouse units.
Alloy was also the developer of 192 Water Street, a nine-unit condo conversion of another Dumbo warehouse, which sold out this February, eight months after sales first launched. The firm’s portfolio also includes 245 10th Avenue, near the High Line, according to its website. [Brownstoner]
