It was announced yesterday that BBP has chosen Alloy Development and Monadnock Development to design and develop the building, according to the Brooklyn Eagle.
The residential building will include 47 apartments and cultural and retail space on the ground floor, which will be occupied by the Brooklyn Children’s Museum.
BP Marty Markowitz said, "DUMBO’s Johns Street will be on par with Sesame Street for the borough’s toddler and preteen set once the renowned Brooklyn Children's Museum opens its doors on the waterfront." The Museum annex will occupy 1,750 square feet.
According to NY1, the vote to move forward with the plan was not unanimous, with elected officials who sit on the board coming out against it. They sided with the construction trades, who showed up at the meeting demanding union labor be used.
Note to potential buyers and park-goers: Residents of DUMBO and other neighborhoods in Western Brooklyn no longer have access to a hospital or emergency medical care.
