Back in September of 2016, YIMBY reported on permits filed for two new buildings coming to 127-129 Troutman Street, in western Bushwick. Now, we have the reveal for the project, which is being developed by Moshe Friedman and designed by Brooklyn-based BEAM Group.

Despite the fact that permits indicate two separate buildings, the combination will function visually as a single whole. Filings show that the structures will measure 6,052 and 5,895 square feet apiece, with eight units between each, for sixteen apartments in total.

Regarding the design, YIMBY spoke with the architect, who said the building was “inspired by a luck of the drawer dresser,” and that the “facade is surrounded by a wooden frame, and a rigid geometry is broken to reveal recessed balconies.”

Besides the innovative approach to zoning, which results in avoidance of absurd minimum parking requirements, the creative approach also results in “a double-layer facade that you can actually walk in.”

The new buildings at 127-129 Troutman are replacing a vacant lot and a small house, on a 50-foot-wide assemblage that spans 5,000 square feet in total. Completion of the project is expected in about a year.

  1. How can I apply for a unit (low income if available) thank you.
    Is there any units reserved for low INCOME?

  2. I grew up in the small two-story house (129 Troutman St.)that was there before this building went up. Spent the most amazing years of my childhood and teenage years living there (1999-2010ish? – don’t remember quite well). The whole street was quiet and full of amazing families. I saw the Castlebraid development in front go up. Never knew our house would be next. So much immense nostalgia and sadness at how everything vanishes before our eyes but, life is change and life goes on. Just wish the new wealthier residents of Bushwick weren’t so rude and exclusive.

    Bushwick was a community where families knew each other, where kids would play run and where you knew your neighbours. Now it’s just single adults in their own world ignoring their new community. What a regression of community life!
