'Silvery Metallic Megastructure' Coming to Burg's Union Ave.

What you're looking at is 554 Union Avenue. You might know the former building on the site as the Abbe Eng. Co. for many years. It's on a part of Union Avenue in Williamsburg that's getting a radical makeover. The design of the six-story condo is from the offices of Gene Kaufman Architect. They describe it so:

A derelict contaminated site in the hip Williamsburg neighborhood is reclaimed for a new silvery metallic megastructure configured as 100 residential condominiums. The L-shaped, 120,000 square foot building occupies half of a city block. Two separate new six-story buildings spanning two streets extend an urban paradigm to a smaller scale integrated with adjacent row houses and factories.The "silvery metallic megastructure" building will also have "a skyline presence."
