Updated: 4:37, Nov. 16: Boston Properties and Rudin Management filed plans for their new stylish, startup-focused office building at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

The developers filed a permit application Monday for the 17-story, 556,000-square foot Dock 72 at 652 Kent Avenue. Coworking space provider WeWork has agreed to anchor the building, leasing 222,000 square feet of space.

The building’s first floor will contain a messenger center, a cafeteria, a kitchen and a lounge, according to the application. A health and wellness center and additional lounge space will occupy the second floor. The third through 16th floors will house office space, with the top floor devoted to utility space and storage.

The building’s area is, according to the permit, significantly less than the 675,000 square feet the partners have advertised, but a spokesperson for Rudin Management said that the partners’ plans were unchanged. Their advertised figure refers to rentable plus mechanical space, the spokesperson wrote in an email.

Six of the floors will contain “outdoor amenities,” presumably referring to the building’s cantilevered terraces.

S9 Architecture, an affiliate of Perkins Eastman, is the architect of record, according to the filing.

Asking rents at the building will be between $60 and $70 per square foot, Rudin Management vice president Michael Rudin told The Real Deal in September.

The partners acquired a 99-year ground lease for the property from the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation, the city nonprofit that manages the yard, in June for $47 million. Dock 72 is part of the massive 4.5 million-square-foot redevelopment of the area.

A previous version of this article identified Michael Rudin as Rudin Management’s CEO. He’s actually a vice president. A clarification was also appended to indicate that the planned square footage of the building hadn’t changed, according to a spokesperson for Rudin.
