Front & York

Morris Adjmi Architects en tant que Architectes.

The Manhattan Bridge is the spine of the Dumbo Historic District—its monumental stone anchor as essential to local character as brick buildings and Belgian-block streets. In recent years, the nineteenth- and early twentieth-century factories and warehouses “down under the Manhattan Bridge overpass” have been reborn as residential lofts and commercial spaces. Front & York is a new multifamily development inspired by the evolution of this post-industrial setting. Like the bridge’s stone anchor, it is a bold contribution to the urban fabric that is emblematic of the neighborhood.

Front & York adapts the warehouse aesthetic at a grand scale. The 1,200,000-square-foot building occupies a full city block, but thoughtful massing reduces its perceived size. All four facades are pulled back 18 feet from the property line to create a generous new pedestrian zone lined with street-level retail spaces framed with steel arches inspired by the Manhattan Bridge. The arches support a precast GFRC “supergrid” of immense factory-style divided light windows that provide each dwelling with panoramic views of Lower Manhattan, Downtown Brooklyn, or the multi-tiered courtyard at the building’s core—the largest private park in Dumbo.
