St. Ann's Warehouse
St. Ann's Warehouse at 38 Water Street is supposedly a former spice milling factory, although I can find no reliable documentation of its history on the web. The company that runs the facility was formed in 1980 at the Church of St. Ann and the Holy Trinity on Montague Street and moved to this facility in 2001. A developer has had his eye on this site for a number of years and proposal for a tower was shot down in 2004. However, as of this writing, proposals continue, with the primary concern being that the height of any building on the site not obscure views of the iconic Brooklyn Bridge.
