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."
