26-Story Tower Coming to 30 Front St in DUMBO

Construction on a new 26-story, mixed-use building will soon begin at 30 Front Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn.

Fortis Property Group is developing the 360,000-square-foot project that will rise 26-stories on a triangular parcel and stand 370 feet tall. 

The new building will hold 76 apartments averaging 2,400 square feet apiece.

30 Front Street, designed by Hill West Architects, will have a distinctive look among the surrounding industrial warehouses, with a series of different sized balconies and geometries on the edge of each floor.

The building will be topped with an elegant sloped crown that will complete the sweeping sail-like look. 

The building will hold 178,000 square feet of residential floor space, 72,500 square feet of community space, with the remainder for a three-story school 220 parking spaces. 

Apartments on the 22nd and 26th will be full-floor units, with two duplex penthouses on the 24th and 25th floors.

30 Front Street will feature a large residential lounge, a bowling alley, a sauna and spa, a yoga room, with a swimming pool and recreational space on the sixth-floor.

The project's unit count and abundance of amenities suggest condos. DUMBO maintains one of Brooklyn's highest sales medians of $1,408 per square foot. One-bedrooms have a median ask of $996,500, two-bedrooms at $2.149 million and three-bedrooms at $4.92 million.

The building site was previously a parking lot for the Jehovah’s Witnesses former headquarters, famous for its prominent Watchtower sign and is the largest undeveloped tract in the neighborhood.
