Doug Steiner plans to build three new retail buildings as part of the redevelopment of Admiral’s Row in Brooklyn.

Steiner, who developed Steiner Studios in the nearby Brooklyn Navy Yard, filed plans on Friday with the Department of Buildings for three properties at 25 Navy Street, 1 Flushing Avenue and 3 Flushing Avenue. The permit applications are the latest step in Steiner’s redevelopment of the six-acre site known as Admiral’s Row, an area on the edge of the Brooklyn Navy Yard lined with historic buildings that once housed naval officers.

The new retail buildings will collectively span more than 87,000 square feet. 3 Flushing Avenue will have five retail stores across 34, 171 square feet of commercial space, while 1 Flushing will have 12,600 square feet for one store. The largest building, 25 Navy Street, will span 40,626 square feet and have room for four stores. S9 Architecture is the design architect.

Steiner could not immediately be reached for comment.

The Brooklyn Navy Yard Corporation tapped Steiner to redevelop the area, which will include a 74,000-square-foot Wegman’s grocery store, as well as these three retail buildings. It doesn’t appear that plans have yet been filed to demolish the deteriorating officers’ quarters on the property. Steiner will have a 96-year lease on the site.
