Too many renderings come through that resemble the same mold of international style. Today, Citiscape Consulting has revealed an unusual design for a long-term care facility at 1508 Avenue Z in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. The post-war Japanese Metabolism movement, a style that integrated organic material and architecture, was what inspired the 16-story building’s distinctive look.
Located in Downtown Brooklyn, “The Amberly” is perhaps the most recently completed addition to the Borough’s burgeoning skyline. The project is Brooklyn’s first residential high-rise from international design firm Woods Bagot.
In the heart of Tribeca’s West Historic District, along the cobblestone roads, 15 Jay Street is undergoing an interior renovation of five lofts, set to be redesigned by the Meshberg Group. The developer is Jay Hudson LLC, while marketing is being led by Michael Brooks of MNS.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 204 Schenck Avenue in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn. The lot is right on the border with East New York. Four blocks away is the Van Siclen Avenue subway station, serviced by the J and Z trains. Labib Krunfol is listed as responsible for the development.
Speculations for the topping out of the 73-story 30 Hudson Yards have been swirling for the last couple months, and now the fateful day has finally arrived.

While some steel remains to be installed before the crown is fully complete, the significance of this is akin to the topping of the spire of a cathedral. In this case, it is a monument to the capitalistic ideals that fuel the contemporary American economy.
