The Department of City Planning is now reviewing proposals to construct a nine-story mixed-use development at 1160 Flushing Avenue in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Designed by S9 Architecture and developed by Totem Brooklyn, the property will comprise more than 238,000 square feet and include a mix of retail, office, and light industrial components.
If approved, the building will replace an existing single-story building.
The site is located in an area zoned primarily for ground up manufacturing or warehouse buildings, as well as some commercial use. Before the developer can break ground, the city will need to grant a zoning amendment to permit the construction of the mixed-use property, which also exceeds existing height restrictions.
Renderings reveal a single-story and a nine-story volume separated by a narrow alley. The retail component will occupy the entirety of the single-story building, as well as the cellar through second floors of the nine-story building. This component will max out at 75,586 square feet.
The second and third floors of the nine-story building will contain more than 40,000 square feet of light industrial space. The remaining floors will house roughly 122,000 square feet of office space.
While specific building amenities have not been confirmed, elevation diagrams from S9 Architecture also reveal multiple terrace levels. The outdoor space above the fifth floor will most likely accompany a premium office suite once the building is completed.
The next phase of approvals includes the review of an Environmental Impact Statement by the City Planning Commission, local community boards, and the borough president. The developer is hopeful that the project will debut by 2026.
