RED HOOK – Thor Equities may be revising its plans for Red Hoek Point, the “revolutionary office campus” proposed for the former Revere Sugar Refinery site.

The 7.7-acre mixed-use campus planned for 280 Richards Street may now become a warehousing facility instead, The Real Deal reports. Designed by Foster + Partners and SCAPE Studio landscape architects, the complex originally planned for the site featured two buildings with more than 795,000 square feet of “creative office space,” 23,000 square feet of commercial space, and a public waterfront esplanade.


In April 2018, Senator Velmanette Montgomery penned a letter to the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the NYC Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) requesting that the agencies “conduct a soil test of the dirt mounds on the pier at 280 Richards Street and investigate the excessive flooding conditions in the area surrounding this site.”
