Morris Adjmi Architects have unveiled the first set of renderings of the Front & York Residences, a resort-style residential development currently taking shape in Brooklyn’s DUMBO district.

The new complex will offer 150,000 sq ft (13,935 sq m) of leisure facilities, including a rooftop pool, co-working lounge, chef’s kitchen, private dining rooms and a wine room.

Front & York will also feature 408 one- to four-bedroom apartments, plus a private park designed by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates.

The property is being developed by CIM Group and LIVWRK, who – along with Kushner Companies– acquired it for a reported US$345m (€307.5m, £273.7m) in 2016.

Speaking on the project, Shaul Kuba, co-founder and principal of CIM Group, commented: “The site is well-located near transportation, thriving neighbourhoods, and desirable amenities, making it attractive for a variety of uses catering to residents, businesses, retailers, and the needs of the community."

Construction on the scheme is expected to begin later this year, with an anticipated completion date of 2021.
