Situated at the corner of Adams and Willoughby Streets, across from Borough Hall, Cadman Plaza and Brooklyn Heights, and adjacent to Muss’ 667-room New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge, 345 Adams brings upscale retail and dining opportunities to Downtown Brooklyn.
345 Adams was originally built as the headquarters of the Brooklyn Edison Company and owned by the City of New York. In 2008, Muss agreed to purchase the first two floors and undertake a unique visionary renovation of the Renaissance Revival-style property, restoring its elegant beauty.
Arched windows were carved into a former “big blank wall” extending all the way on the Willoughby Street side of the corner property. A drop-ceiling in the 23-foot-tall corner space was removed and the space restored to its original height and with its original details, including moldings, light fixtures and detail at the top of its columns. The Adams Street side will have a completely new facade.
Surrounded by affluent residential neighborhoods such as Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, Park Slope, Boerum Hill, Fort Greene and Dumbo, 345 Adams is located at the confluence of one of the best retailing corridors in Brooklyn.
