NV Design Architecture recently returned to the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) with updated proposals to construct a new four-building townhouse development in Brooklyn. Located at 437-441 Lewis Avenue and 39 Chauncey Street, the property is within the Bedford-Stuyvesant Historic District and requires a Certificate of Appropriateness from the commission before construction can begin.

Modifications pertain primarily to the façade, which will now be constructed of a more contextual mix of red brick masonry, bluestone mansard roofs, limestone accents, and dark concrete stairs to match adjacent properties. The entrances to each townhouse will be flanked by steel modesty planters and rubbish enclosures designed to match the window framing at the ground level.

The homes within will contain four full floors of living area including a finished cellar. Above the third story, residents will have access to a private roof deck.

Overall, the new renderings illustrate an inspired departure from the brown brick façade previously presented to the LPC in December 2020.

    The open site for the project to construct building, that featuring ground and sky; I enjoying a quiet environment: Thank you.

  2. This does look better.

  3. Another hideous building!
    Just because you are an Architect does not make you an Artist.

  4. How can i apply for application affordable apartment please give me details an address so I can apply

  5. This does look better but still not great. I dislike the smallish size of the windows. It nearly makes the buildings feel like a penal institution.

  6. Looks great can’t wait for them to go up

    I want to keep up with this. I was raised at 155 Chauncey St.
    I want to move back home on beautiful Chauncey St. !

  8. Horrible design not at all in line with the historic brownstones, park, and frame house next to it. The block is landmarked for a reason. The facade needs to match the area. This is not even close.

    How can I apply for a two bedroom apartment

  10. Single and need a one bedroom apartment for rent.
    As a transAtlantic slave from Africa, America is indebted to me for slavery and not paid as yet. So the slavery payment for my ancestors labor will be millions of dollars owing to me by the Treasury in Washington. Therefore my Monthly rental will be paid by Washingtonn
