HIMROD STREET APARTMENTS
LOCATION: Bushwick, Brooklyn
TYPE: New Residential and Community Facility Building
The larger sister project of the Willoughby Avenue Apartments (also by BORO Architects), this 12-story, 55-unit apartment building is sited on an irregularly shaped through-block lot just off of Bushwick’s busy Wyckoff Avenue. There will be a community facility space and a retail store at the first floor. Amenities include a spacious lobby lounge, fitness center, and two roof terraces. Indoor parking for 40 cars will be provided in the cellar and first floor, with an open parking area on a narrow lot fronting Stanhope Street. The flat-plate concrete structure will be clad with brick and corrugated metal panels. BORO provided the architectural design and permit expediting services for all Department of Buildings approvals. The building is slated for groundbreaking in Summer of 2017.
