It’s been eight months since ODA Architecture received its final approvals from the Landmarks Preservation Commission to convert the former Arbuckle Brothers sugar refinery building in Dumbo into a modern retail and office site. We’ve previously seen renderings of 10 Jay Street‘s prismatic East River-facing elevation–which was inspired by sugar crystals, the nearby Manhattan Bridge, and the neighborhood’s historic steel and brick facades–and now that the rehab is in full swing, CityRealty noticed that the leasing team has debuted a new website with never-before-seen renderings of the brick east wall, adjoining waterfront plaza, retail space, and offices.
As 6sqft previously reported, 10 Jay was built in 1897, and in more recent years, its east wall began to deteriorate after being covered in stucco since the 1970s. After a structural repair, we can see how it will blend with the north and south facades, with large, steel-framed arched windows highlighting the retail space.
On the south side, there will be an open “gathering lawn.”
Though there’s been no confirmation that an Apple store will take up residency here, the interior retail renderings do show how the computer giant would look.
We also see how a ground-floor restaurant could look.
The lobby is quite standard, save for the barrel-vaulted brick ceiling.
The office spaces are loft-like and open, highlighted by the incredible East River views through the geometric windows, exposed brick columns, and more vaulted ceilings. According to the new website, the 10-story building will offer 23,000-square-foot floorplates and 14-foot ceilings. The penthouse floor will be 13,000 square feet with a 10,000-square-foot private roof deck.
Construction is expected to wrap up by the end of the year.
