Today, YIMBY has a new look for 83 Humboldt Street, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The building will be shifting away from its original brushed aluminum and wood paneling. The facade will include masonry between floor-to-ceiling windows of various widths, for a seemingly randomized façade pattern. Eight light fixtures on the edge of the building add an unusual flare. Beam Group is responsible for the design.
