Located within the East New York neighborhood of Brooklyn, this mixed-use development combines the adaptive re-use of the early 1900s landmarked Empire State Dairy complex – a former milk production and distribution facility designed by Theobald Engelhardt and Otto Strack – and new construction. The resulting 14-story building will create 320 units of housing including 77 inclusionary units. Ground floor space will provide commercial and community facility uses, and the upper two floors of the landmarked building are also designated for community facility space.

A Bridge Between the Past and Future

Part of the rezoning along Atlantic Ave in East New York, the preservation of the Empire State Dairy Building will be an important bridge between the industrial past of the neighborhood and the new development.

2840 Atlantic is designed to preserve the exterior façade of the landmarked building while maximizing affordable housing units and retail space.  In approving the design, the Landmarks Preservation Commission cited that “the cumulative effect of this work will support the continued use of this complex of industrial buildings that advanced the sanitation and production scale of the dairy industry in New York City, and collectively represent the industrial and manufacturing history in Brooklyn.” The adaptive re-use approach saves embodied energy and reduces landfill waste.
