Permits have been filed for a five-story residential complex at 55 Summit Street in Brooklyn’s Columbia Street Waterfront District. Located between Columbia Street and Hamilton Avenue, the nearest subway is Carroll Street station, serviced by the F and G trains. RJ Capital Holdings, listed as the owner behind the applications, also filed permits for four townhouses with one unit and one parking space at the adjacent 57, 59, 61, and 63 Summit Street addresses.

Renderings reveal an alternating light and dark brick façade with large windows and setbacks on the rooftop and ground level. According to architect of record Builtd, the development, which contains four townhouses, will be built as a whole to meet Passive House standards with insulated window frames, ample natural light, and spaces for passive recreation and gardening.

    A beautiful design and built to passive house standards. There is no reason, and no time left, not to build all new buildings to passive standards and begin retrofitting existing buildings. This will create new good jobs for years to come.

  2. I wish there was no garage and curb cut but what what are you gonna do? Hopefully they will be done very sensitivity.
