Last December, YIMBY reported on new filings for a 308-unit development coming to 1263 East 14th Street, in Brooklyn’s Midwood neighborhood. Now, we have the reveal for the building, which has an official address of 1277 East 14th Street. Woods Bagot is the architect of record while Hampshire Properties is the developer.
Like most new rental developments in New York City, PTACs will punctuate the facade of 1277 East 14th Street. But besides the continued scourge of the environmentally-unfriendly and aesthetically-unpleasing air conditioning units, the overall project will be fairly attractive.
Woods Bagot is also responsible for the design of 213 Jay Street and the four-building Gramercy Square project, and the decision to value-engineer development with PTACs falls upon developers, not architects. The firm has a penchant for contemporary but contextual design, and 1277 East 14th Street will feature a two-toned brick facade as well as a smattering of balconies.
The project will replace an old 85,000 square foot school, and the new building will total 277,406 square feet. Given the average unit size of approximately 900 square feet — and the presence of PTACs — rentals would appear likely.
No completion date has been announced but the development’s permits were denied last week. Demolition permits are also currently lacking, but the new renderings are hopefully a sign that work will soon begin.
