Carter Horsley's Review of 70 Washington Street

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"After converting the Clock Tower Building and the Sweeney Building in Dumbo (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) in Brooklyn, David and Jed Walentas of Two Trees Management began their conversion of this building at 70 Washington Street, also in Dumbo, in 2004 into 225 apartments.

"'I'm a very unprecious artist,' Mr. Rekevics said," the article continued, "before smashing his multi-ton sculpture to bits. 'And I wanted to go out with a bang.' Mr. Rekevics was just one part of a mass exodus of artists who were packing up, breaking down and moving out last week, leaving behind their lives at 70 Washington Street, a hulking 12-story building, between Front and York Streets, in the riverfront Brooklyn neighborhood known as Dumbo....Beginning in August, the building, a once-vibrant honeycomb of artist studios, galleries, a theater and all manner of artistic enterprise, will be converted into luxury loft apartments, selling for anywhere from $500,000 to more than $1 million. That artists are being displaced by pricey housing shouldn't surprise anyone who has watched over the years as other arty neighborhoods like the East Village, TriBeCa and Williamsburg have been gentrified. But what has shocked many in Dumbo is the extreme speed and calculation with which the neighborhood - barely residential a decade ago - has begun to be co-opted by co-ops. (Or condos, to be precise.)"" Read Carter's Full Review
