    From Design Collective

    http://www.designcollective.com/Arch...k,%20Brooklyn/

    Brooklyn’s abandoned Daily News building is once again front-page news. The strength of the proposed redevelopment lies in its prominent setting. Highly visible from Atlantic Avenue, News Walk celebrates the unique architectural characteristics of the existing structure. The housing component on upper floors features moderately priced market rate housing for young professionals. Retail and entertainment uses animate both sides of the street and reinforce the concept that News Walk is a microcosm of the City.

    Its strategic location straddles the more affluent areas of Park Slope, and the ethnically diverse neighborhood of Crown Heights. By acquiring air rights to develop over top of an adjacent rail yard, a newly constructed deck would allow for retail on both sides of Pacific Street and for a new “front door” to the project by extending the retail component to Atlantic Avenue.

    By physical fusing together the two neighborhoods at this social and geographical crossroad, News Walk has the potential to become New York’s first truly integrated – neighborhood active and safe 24 hours a day.

    I live around the corner and the owner of that building also owns the building it is attached to. There were people living in the one attached - but I think both buildings are empty. The owner either works/owns the little iron place on Dean.
    I know he put in top of the line electrical and plumbing systems (or at least was told that by the contractor working there)
