Nostrand Avenue

Brooklyn, NY (2012 - )

This 8-story, 170-unit apartment building is sited on a corner lot in East Flatbush between Prospect Park and Kings County Hospital. The building's entry lobby is set on the quieter side-street, and gives onto gym and yoga rooms oriented towards a south-facing garden area. Ground floor retails extends from the lobby and turns the corner onto the busy Nostrand Avenue. The building massing sitting above the street-level columns is conceived as a 5-story masonry block skinned with elaborate brick patterning, with a two-story panelized 'penthouse' volume set on top. Expansive terraces and roof gardens at this level have westerly views to Prospect Park.
