Renderings from Gertler & Wente Architects reveal a nine-story mixed-use building at 52 Fourth Avenue in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. Located at the corner of Dean Street in the heart of the neighborhood’s buzzing retail corridor, the 55,000-square-foot structure will yield 52 rental apartments as well as ground-floor commercial space.

Residential units will be available in a mix of one- and two-bedroom units. Select apartments will also include private outdoor space. A total of four penthouse residences, positioned on the highest floors of the building, will offer the largest outdoor terraces. It is unclear whether the building will offer any residential amenity spaces.

Renderings illustrate a modern cubic design clad primarily in light-brown masonry. The grid of punched windows with dark metal framing is interrupted with staggered sections of continuous floor-to-ceiling glass at the western corner of the building. On the ground floor, 14-foot-high windows will provide an inviting touch to the retail component.

Construction permits filed with the Department of Buildings list RJ 4th Avenue LLC as the property owner and primary developer of the property. Neither the developer nor the design team has published an anticipated completion date for the building.

  1. I hope they are putting in parking spaces since the city has taken away over 10,000 public parking spaces.

    • 4th ave and Bergen is a few blocks from Atlantic Ave/Barclay’s center with its 9 subway lines. There is absolutely zero need for more parking here in one of the most transit rich areas of the city.

  2. This looks…interesting. It’s slightly different than most residential boxes, especially with the corner terraces. The building doesn’t look to become ugly, but it doesn’t have really much flavor in its design. Maybe making it a few stories taller could make the building look a little bit more respectable.

  3. I will like A 3 bedroom apartment for my family. How will I be abule to get an application.
