Demolition of a Dumbo, Brooklyn, building that was one of the original tech buildings in the city commenced this year. Triangle Assets, along with developer Glacial Global Partners, are converting the late-19th-century warehouse into office and retail space, Curbed reported.
Most recently, the structure was home to several startups, according to Curbed, which noted that their leases expired on Dec. 31, 2014. Originally, from 1898 to 1945, the building was home to the Arbuckle Brothers sugar refinery.
The ODA-designed mixed-use development is expected to be completed in fall 2016.
“Right on the waterfront, 10 Jay Street was a building known as a good starting place for new companies,” tech blog Technical.ly reported.
