2840-Atlantic-Avenue-1 All images via Dattner Architects for Landmarks Preservation Commission
Less than a year and a half after being designated an individual New York City landmark, the Empire State Dairy Company Buildings will be appearing before the Landmarks Preservation Commission again. This time, the project in question is a new, 14-story building on the non-landmarked portion of the site that seeks to cantilever over the landmarked building. The hearing will take place on Tuesday, April 16 at 10:30 a.m.
According to renderings in a presentation by Dattner Architects, the new building will be brown and gray masonry with stepped massing on the sides (h/t Brownstoner). The ground floor will have retail and community space, while the studio through three-bedroom apartments would start on the second floor. An application for a demolition permit for one of the non-landmarked buildings was filed last November, but further permits have not yet been filed.

In addition to the new building, the developers and designers seek to install a new atrium entry in the landmarked building. They also plan to restore the windows, pediment, signage, and pastoral mosaics that brought the Empire State Dairy Company Buildings to prominence. While the chimney is visible in all renderings of the new building, the presentation text says it is “currently under assessment” and may be removed.
The Empire State Dairy Company Buildings refer to a collection of buildings at 2840 Atlantic Avenue. The Renaissance/Revival style buildings were designed by Theobold Englehardt circa 1906-1907, and the Abstracted Classicist style buildings with Secessionist details were designed by Otto Strack around 1914-1915. More recently, the complex was sold for $16.75 million in September 2018 to HP Brooklyn Dairy Housing Development Fund Company, a part of the non-profit Housing Partnership Development Corporation. Further details on the apartments and prices are not yet available.
