Revere Dome to Come Back to Life as Shopping Mall & Condos?

Monday, June 4, 2007
by Robert

If that thing in the middle of the top rendering looks familiar, it's because it is. It's an approximation of the Revere Dome in Red Hook, redone as the glass entrance to what looks like a huge shopping mall plus condos. The mall and condos, of course, would be mall in Red Hook where the Revere Dome used to be. We don't know what this rendering actually means, but the website belongs to Magnusson Architecture and Planning. The tipster who pointed us that way wrote, "Whether or not it's a real proposal or was done for fun, Thor has some ambitious plans out there in Brooklyn's final frontier." Is it a conceptual drawing? An actual plan? An outdated thing that's been up for a while without being noticed? Last we heard, Enrique Norten and TEN Arquitectos were doing the site, so maybe it's totally old. The details noted on the site are as follows:

Client: Thor Equities
Location: Red Hook, Brooklyn
Total SF: 1,661,200 SF
Residential SF: 907,000 SF
Retail SF: 250,000 SF

It says "the retail space is intended to be filled with a mixture of big box and local stores." The residential part of the 15-acre project would have 900 units and twelve story buildings. If it is real and current, there are small matters of zoning, etc. that would have to be resolved. Excuse us now while we go pinch ourselves to make sure we're awake.

Red Hook's Zero Energy Building Keeps the Renderings Coming

September 10, 2010, by Sara


The first images of planned Garrison Architects (http://www.garrisonarchitects.com/) project Redhook Green came to our attention late last year (http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2009/12/04/planned_red_hook_building_hasnt_forgotten_industri al_roots.php), in their very early stages. The building, inspired by Red Hook's proud shipping container tradition, claims to be New York's first "zero energy building," meaning that it gets all its energy from renewable sources, as one of the architects recently explained to CNN (http://money.cnn.com/video/news/2010/09/02/n_nyc_green_home.cnnmoney/).

Easier said than done! The architects tell us the project is a little behind schedule, with a new winter 2011 completion date. In the meantime, there are new renderings of the building, which will include an apartment, garage with electric car charger, and offices. Above, the front view.

Massive Tech Complex Floated For The Red Hook Waterfront

It seems that Italian developer Est4ate Four (http://ny.curbed.com/tags/est4te-four) has made it its mission to change Red Hook, first with its luxury condo development at 160 Imlay Street (http://ny.curbed.com/places/160-imlay-street) that brought the neighborhood a new slew of very expensive apartments (which is somewhat surprisingly 70 percent sold (http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2014/10/28/160_imlay_70_percent_sold_nyu_expands_downtown_emp ire.php) after just one month on the market), and now word comes that the group is planning a creative industries campus for the neighborhood. The massive, 1.1 million-square-foot complex—an area, YIMBY points out (http://newyorkyimby.com/2014/10/revealed-est4te-fours-1-1-million-square-foot-red-hook-office-redevelopment.html), that's equivalent to a "Manhattan skyscraper's worth of floor space"—will stretch between Coffey and Wolcott streets, and Ferris Street and New York Harbor. The complex will take over several pre-war brick buildings, and add space with glass toppers. Some of the buildings on the lot, like the New York Daily News's old printing press, will be razed. Architecture firm NBBJ is working on the project, which appears to also bring a waterfront promenade to the area.

Dry flood proofing techniques will be used to keep the flood-prone area from turning into an extension of the harbor come the next big storm. NBBJ, in collaboration with other industry specialists, is in the process of researching techniques for how to best storm proof the volatile area.

Will This Enormous Mixed-Use Project Rise in Red Hook?

March 8, 2015, by Rowley Amato

http://cdn.cstatic.net/images/gridfs/54fa598bf92ea16321013c2f/Revere-Sugar-Site-Red-Hook-2.jpg (http://cdn.cstatic.net/images/gridfs/54fa598bf92ea16321013c32/Revere-Sugar-Site-Red-Hook-2.jpg)

The good folks over at Magnusson Architecture and Planning just recently put together a feasibility study (http://www.6sqft.com/revealed-massive-mixed-use-development-at-red-hooks-revere-sugar-factory-site/) to redevelop the site of the Revere Sugar Refinery (http://ny.curbed.com/tags/revere-sugar-refinery) in Red Hook (otherwise known as Brooklyn's second-favorite disused sugar factory), and boy, is it a doozy.

http://cdn.cstatic.net/images/gridfs/54fa598df92ea16321013c3a/Revere-Sugar-Site-Red-Hook.jpg (http://cdn.cstatic.net/images/gridfs/54fa598df92ea16321013c3d/Revere-Sugar-Site-Red-Hook.jpg)http://cdn.cstatic.net/images/gridfs/54fa598ff92ea16321013c44/280-Richards-Street-Revere-Sugar-Site-Red-Hook-5.jpg (http://cdn.cstatic.net/images/gridfs/54fa5990f92ea16321013c47/280-Richards-Street-Revere-Sugar-Site-Red-Hook-5.jpg)

The plan calls for a 1.7 million-square-foot mixed use development. It would include 900 apartments, 250,000 square feet of retail, and 400,000 square feet of parking on the former factory's footprint, which was demolished in 2007. The renderings (http://www.maparchitects.com/portfolio/280-richards-street/) put forward by MAP are certainly impressive and would feature a multi-level commercial complex, plus six 12-story residential buildings surrounding a raised, landscaped roofdeck. According to 6sqft (who first saw the plans), the development would also feature loft-like offices and possibly a marina.

The current owner, Thor Equities (http://www.thorequities.com), purchased the six acre parcel of land all the way back in 2005 for $40 million.
