The Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation (BNYDC) announced Tuesday the launch of leasing for 130,000 square feet of manufacturing and creative office space at Building 212, part of a project in the works at Admiral’s Row, formerly the site of a row of 19th century wood frame homes that once housed naval officers. Along with the announcement came new renderings of the five story building that will be home to a much-anticipated Wegmans supermarket scheduled to open this fall.

BNYDC is handling the marketing of 34,000 square feet of creative office space and 96,000 square feet of manufacturing space at Building 212. Steiner NYC is developing the full, 500,000-square foot Admirals Row project, which also includes retail space. That project is expected to be ready in the fall; Wegmans announced that it will open on October 27.

David Ehrenberg, President and CEO of the BNYDC said, “There is a real demand for smaller manufacturing and creative office spaces, as this is always some of the quickest to lease-up at the Navy Yard. Admirals Row will be a terrific home for manufacturing and creative companies, adding to an innovative ecosystem we’re working to cultivate at the Yard, and there are few better tenant amenities than a Wegmans right in the building.”

Available for lease at building 212 are 30 units of manufacturing space on the second, third and fourth floors with creative office space available on the fifth floor. Tenant parking is available, and BNYDC says it will provide shuttle buses with connections to 13 subway lines and the LIRR. Seven Citi Bike docking stations are located nearby including one right across the street, and a NYC Ferry stop will open this summer at the Navy Yard.

The entire Navy Yard is in the midst of a $1 billion expansion–its largest since WWII–which will bring 10,500 jobs to the area. In the works are the renovation of the 1.1 million square foot Building 77 with space for design and manufacturing tenants and a ground-floor food manufacturing center, Dock 72, a creative office building developed by Rudin Management and Boston Properties, the Green Manufacturing Center, which houses the New Lab, and an expanded Steiner Studios, the country’s largest film and television production studio outside Hollywood. BNYDC also recently announced a $2.5 billion master plan to create 10,000 additional jobs in vertical manufacturing buildings.
