In recent years Williamsburg Brooklyn has become a hotbed for progress and urban revitalization. In the midst of major changes there are still gems of the area’s history which lay untouched. The Dime Savings Bank opened in 1864 and ran as is, until the property was acquired by the Charney Construction Company in 2016. The construction of the new Dime Building, designed by architects Fogarty Finger, will utilize the historic Dime Savings Bank structure potentially as a lobby or a showroom.
The new building is a 22 story addition, which will command attention at a distance since the future building is several stories higher than those surrounding. The mixed-use structure will be occupied by commercial, retail, and multi-family residential tenants.
The exterior facade will be comprised of extruded terra cotta tiles with a white glaze application manufactured at Boston Valley Terra Cotta.
