West Egg Development has released renderings of a ground-up, five-story residential property in East Flatbush, Brooklyn. Located at 110 East 53rd Street between Winthrop Street and Clarkson Avenue, the building replaces a two-story single-family home and an associated rear yard.

Designed by Caliendo Architects, the development will include eight apartments with private balconies at each level. A single penthouse unit on the top floor of the building will offer a spacious, 900-square-foot private terrace. In total, the property will measure 6,927 square feet.

The structure’s façade is comprised of mostly pale brick masonry and dark metal elements that introduce simple, unobtrusive form to the private residential block.

Construction will begin this month and is expected to conclude by fall 2020.

  1. Can it be strengthened by inserting your report with photos? I’m not a person on the development bias. Therefore, you can trust me in the regard of appreciation. And I have always a positive perspective on the construction of progress. (Thank you very much)

  2. Boy,that fits right into the neighborhood, amirite? How is a travesty like this allowed?

    • It’s not a travesty. It’s a city growing and transforming from houses to apartment buildings. As the world’s population grows, the need to house all the extra humans in denser cities is the way to lessen the environmental impact of the growth. Funny how the supposedly liberal NY’ers are so anti-growth in their own neighborhoods but are for allowing the world to come into this country. They are supposedly for progressive environmental causes but fight density, which only causes sprawl, which is much worse for the environment.

      • It’s not about anti-growth, it’s about anti-ugly architecture. Doesn’t the growing population deserve nice-looking streets?

        • Trust me, I hate the ugly Fedders brick boxes that are so prevalent across the outerboroughs as much as you. However, with how costly it is to do anything in this overregulated, overtaxed, overly Leftist city, you have to understand that this is what you are going to get.

          Quality is going to cost even more and in this city where housing market is tight, there is very little incentive to provide quality. People just want cheap (relatively speaking).

      • “funny how the supposedly liberal NY’ers are so anti-growth in their own neighborhoods but are for allowing the world to come into this country.”

        Dude, there is nobody on earth more anti-immigration than I am. But stuff like “growth” and “free trade” are con jobs sold to you by the same Globalists that are burying America in immigrant riff-raff. I don’t want my country turning into a globalist ant-hill, with all the nice older houses replaced by erector set style buildings where immigrant invaders can live ten to a room. That’s your “growth” right there.

        • Well, if you are truly anti-immigration like you claim then you are the very much the exception in this mostly Leftist city. However, your anti-growth sentiment is common throughout this city. I am just pointing out the hypocrisy of the typical NYC liberal.

            Fair enough! You’re right on the hypocrisy.

            Me, I’m an old curmudgeon and I want very limited change. But of course that’s a pipe dream. New York will be a Chinese majority, Chinese run city in less than 20 years.

  3. @ASensibleMan

    Look at Google Streetview. There are 5-story apartment buildings throughout the block. The small homes are out of context.

  4. REALLY??? That’s awful. and then when the other attached houses sell, something non matching will be built. AND 8 apartments from a one family house – where’s the parking??

  5. Is this a joke?

    I am writing from Chicago and I must say that the Far Right Wing rhetoric I just read came as a big shock to me. The best part of refreshing times in NYC is the plethora of languages in the street along with the immense variety of facial features. Please don’t change that!! It’s one of your fascinations. I do agree with the new building being out of place between two brick cottages. Having being in urban rehab most of my life, I offer a suggestion. Instead of white with the black details, suppose you integrate your structure into it”s surroundings by using red brick or even common brick. A little sensitivity goes a really long way.!

    • “I am writing from Chicago”

      How many people got shot today?

      “I must say that the Far Right Wing rhetoric”

      Lol!! Yeah, I know, anyone that disagrees with your snowflakey worldview is “far right wing” (queue Jaws music).

      “The best part of refreshing times in NYC is the plethora of languages in the street”

      No, that’s actually horrible. The Tower of Babel is a cautionary tale for a reason.

      “Please don’t change that!!”

      Sadly, I’m not the Dictator of New York. I really wouldn’t worry about it changing.

      “Instead of white with the black details, suppose you integrate your structure into it”s surroundings by using red brick or even common brick. A little sensitivity goes a really long way.!”

      On that we can agree! But you’re assuming that the foreign interlopers like Samuel Eshaghof who runs West Egg Development give the slightest fig about maintaining neighborhood cohesion. They don’t. After all, why should they? It’s not THEIR country. It’s just a beached whale they want to carve a slice out of. Diversity is our strength!

  7. Very interesting conversation. I respect all opinions and like the dialogue. I love the design of this building. Very rarely are they doing this in the Bronx. This is what I consider condo living. Reminds me of Los Angeles. But it definitely does not fit in between those two houses. My opinion is that the younger generation is selling them inherited from their parents.

  8. So, shoving FOUR families into a space created for ONE family (look at the houses on both side of that travesty). Wrecking balls are already swinging happily to get to work on this wart.
