29 Jay Street

Located in the landmark historic DUMBO neighborhood, at the intersection of Jay Street and Plymouth Street, this facility is a new 11-story, 225,000-square-foot commercial building. The design embraces the look and feel of DUMBO's architectural character, sculpted with the attenuated muscularity of 21st Century technology.

View from the corner of Jay St. and Plymouth St.
In keeping with the evolution of structural advancements in the district, we have employed a long span steel structural frame, with diagonal cross bracing to prevent shear walls, minimize columns, and provide ample daylight for modern commercial use with a historic industrial feel.

The simple but attenuated façade rhythm, texture and shadow contrast create a building both of its place and time.
View from south on Jay Street
The building, along with the existing 20 Jay building across the street, creates a gateway into Brooklyn Bridge Park and adds vibrancy to the important Jay Street Corridor.
View from the east at Plymouth St.
The goal is to achieve modern commercial use with a historic industrial feel.
