Nearing completion, this new 8-story, 51,925-square-foot building will be a blend of affordable and supportive housing, offering a mix of studios, 1-, and 2-bedroom units.
As a result of a recent rezoning of the area, the structure will be the tallest on the block. Careful attention has been given to the materials of the surroundings to provide a building that will be congruous with residential the neighborhood. The façade uses brick patterns to reference the typical materials of the area and to articulate the mass of the building. The main building entry off of East New York Avenue is recessed through a private court.
Sustainability has played a significant role in the design. A full array of solar panels on a steel pavilion will be installed on the 8th floor. ESKW/A and The Bridge are coordinating with energy consultant Bright Power to develop a sustainable building model that can be the basis for future building developments.
