Scaffolding has been removed from 291 Livingston Street revealing the large mural on the western elevation of the 22-story hotel in Downtown Brooklyn. The 189-foot-tall project is designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and is being developed by Aview Equities and Hello Living, which purchased the plot for $11.1 million. Located between Nevins Street to the east and Hanover Place to the west, the property will yield 100 hotel rooms and a ground-floor beer garden.
Recent photos show the exterior partially revealed since our last update in late November, when dense scaffolding and netting enshrouded the entire structure.
The general aesthetic of the black-and-white dazzle pattern has been retained from the rendering, albeit in a more muted and form, with gray replacing the white backdrop. The exterior hoist remains attached to the rear elevation, and scaffolding still covers the remainder of the structure, obscuring views of the progress on the windows and stacked balconies, which are rendered to span the southeast corner.
A completion date for 291 Livingston Street has not been announced, though sometime before the end of this year is conceivable.
