Construction is progressing on 308 Livingston Street, a 23-story, 160-unit rental building in Downtown Brooklyn. The project is designed by Fogarty Finger Architecture and is being developed by Lonicera Partners, which purchased the lot in May 2019 for $11 million and demolished several low-rise structures to clear the way for the project.
Photographs by Tectonic show the state of work at the site, which is located between Nevins Street and Bond Street. Progress has been swift since YIMBY’s last visit in mid-April, when foundations were still underway. The first few floors are now above street level, and wooden formwork and scaffolding are in place for the third story ceiling. The only setback is around the 15th story, and the structure culminates in a flat parapet.
Units will include one- and two-bedroom layouts. Each will come with floor-to-ceiling windows and spacious kitchens with stainless steel appliances and stone-clad bathrooms. Not much else has been disclosed about the homes and amenities, though the renderings appear to depict a rooftop terrace. The charcoal-colored masonry envelope and bronze trimmings across the main northern elevation, arranged in three-story rectangular frames, will make the building stand out among the neighborhood.
The nearest subways from the site are the 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains at the Nevins Street station to the east at the intersection of Livingston and Flatbush Avenue; the A, C, and G trains at Hoyt-Schermerhorn Streets station to the west; and the B, Q, and R trains underneath the City Point complex.
308 Livingston Street is expected to be completed in the winter of 2021.
