Construction is now fully complete on 260 Gold Street, a 13-story residential building in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by J Frankl Architects and developed by Bruman Realty, which recently secured a $145 million refinancing package from Square Mile Capital Management, the nearly 260,000-square-foot structure yields 287 rental apartments and features a four-story atrium with an indoor waterfall. The property is bound by Gold Street to the east, Tillary Street to the south, and Duffield Street to the west.

Since our last construction update in July 2020, all of the remaining work has concluded. The most noteworthy architectural element is the configuration of the upper levels, which feature numerous rectangular cantilevering volumes clad in glass and brick that appear to float over the more orthodox base of the structure. The interstitial spaces create pockets for terraces lined with glass railings, while each of these boxes is also topped with outdoor space.

  1. I love it. Everything about 260 Gold is just so appealing, especially how nicely the glass and brick work together. I also think the “floating” boxes at the top don’t look all that bad. I think the fit the overall design of the building very well, and they aren’t that distracting. Furthermore, the rear is almost as good as the main angles with its clean look. It almost looks like a completely different building, but in a very good way. Overall, I think this building is very nice.

  2. That base?

    Just why?

    Why would you make it look like that?
