Work is shaping up on the white terracotta façade of 58 Saint Marks Place, a 12-story residential building in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. Developed by Avdoo & Partners and designed by INC Architecture & Design with Isaac & Stern as the architect of record, the long rectangular structure will yield 100 units and is bound by 4th Avenue to the east, St. Mark’s Place to the north, and Willie McDonald Way to the south.
At the time of our last update in March, the final exterior paneling had only begun installation. Now nearly all of it is in place, with only the final three levels above the main setback awaiting completion.
Black netting and metal scaffolding cover the floors above the setback up to the roof parapet. The tight grid of windows and stack of pocketed terraces make for a richly textured exterior that showcases the simplicity of the terracotta panels and the play of light and shadows created from the indented rectangular window frames. Sidewalk scaffolding lines the ground floor, along with white and orange construction barriers and fencing along 4th Avenue. The mostly blank northern party wall has some windows but is largely made of cinder blocks. This will likely be covered to match the light-colored surface of the rest of the building.
