The façade is comprised of tan brick, black-metal framed windows, and glass railings that enclose the residential balconies and amenity spaces. The massing incorporates a number of setbacks and cantilevers that will support the balconies. For added flare, the underside of each cantilevered section is sheathed in reflective gold cladding.

I understand distributing the bulk that way if the height is allowed–higher apartments command higher prices–but I was under the impression that it isn’t usually economical to reuse old structures in the end, which is why it’s usually done only when grandfathering in old zoning.

      • The reuse of the old structure on the corner is really nicely done, IMO. I think in this case it will add some cache to the whole complex. People love a classy adaptive reuse, especially in that park of Brooklyn.
