The developers of the former NuHart Plastics building, a Superfund site at the corner of Franklin and Dupont Streets, are pushing along with their project, as new building permits have been filed for the site, with renderings show plans for the entire half-block property.

All Year Management, the developers, have filed new building permits for two six-story buildings at the site with a total of 325 units.

The buildings are filed under 22 and 26 Clay Street, with the residential portion of the site spanning more than 238,000 square feet, with just over 5,650 square feet set apart for commercial space.

The building, designed by ODA, includes amenities like lounges, spas, libraries, gyms, and private terraces. More than 340 enclosed parking spaces are also planned for the site.

Renderings obtained by YIMBY show the developer’s plans for the entire 335,000 square foot project site, and are the first display of what the NuHart Plastics site will look like down the line, and feature what appear to be several buildings with floor to ceiling windows and balconies, all mounted atop ground floor commercial and retail space.

The renderings also coincide with past reports of what the project site might look like—a residential and rental complex with two buildings, according to the Real Deal.

The developers have not filed demolition permits yet, but a spokesperson for All Year Management said construction is expected to begin in January 2019, with a project completion date aimed for January 2021.

News of All Year Management’s purchase of the toxic Superfund site came in April. The site, purchased for $55 million, requires a full environmental clean up to be developed.

The property is contaminated underground with two plumes of highly dangerous chemicals, a prospect that has worried residents for some time, especially as plans have been put in place for a public school to be built directly across the street from the property as part of the Greenpoint Landing development. The issue, however, is being worked out by the city and Greenpoint Landing, as discussed in a recent community meeting.

The developers said at the meeting that they expect demolition at the NuHart site to start some time in October.

More than 30 years after the city’s landmarking body first considered preserving a historic section of Willoughby Avenue and Hart Street in Bed-Stuy, residents — some whose brownstones have been in their family for five generations — were able to share at a public hearing why they are calling on the agency to designate part of their neighborhood as a historic district.
