Back in late October, YIMBY reported that permits were filed for 20 townhouses on King and Sullivan streets, totaling more than 50,000 square feet of residential space on a large through-block site in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn.
Now YIMBY has the reveal for the homes, which will average over 2,500 square feet apiece.
Aldo Andreoli appears to be behind the design, and the new buildings will take cues from AA Studio’s past work, which includes the nearby 160 Imlay Street. Large gridded windows dominate, but the façades of each home vary and eventually repeat, calling to mind the eclectic townhouses built in the late 1800s, as opposed to the more cookie-cutter designs of homes built mid-century. Cladding includes what appears to be brick, metal, wood, and possibly also Corten steel, the popular pre-rusted material popularized at Barclays Center.
The site spans from 107-125 King Street on the one side of the block and 74-85 Sullivan Street on the other. Such a large new collection of townhouses is relatively uncommon in recent Brooklyn (and certainly Red Hook) history. Similar projects are underway in areas like Cobble Hill and Williamsburg, but until now, average prices in Red Hook likely did not justify this kind of redevelopment.
Back in August, The Real Deal reported that Sanba Partners would be developing the site with 22 homes, and aiming for an opening in 2016.
