FULTON MARKET — Sterling Bay wants to build another office building in Fulton Market.

The prominent developer aims to build a 14-story office building at 1200 W. Carroll St. They will share details on the plan at a community meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday in Ace Hotel’s Mahoney Room, 311 N. Morgan St. 

The 227-foot-tall building designed by Gensler Architecture would add 485,000 square feet of office space to the area and would also include retail, according to Julie Gouldie, a Sterling Bay spokeswoman. The plan also calls for 90 parking spaces to be developed on site, according to a zoning application.

A warehouse is currently located at the site and the developer is seeking a zoning change.
