Billiard Factory Racked and Ready for Break in Conversion

Renderings for the planned Billiard Factory Lofts in Prospect Heights are out in public. The plans, first noted at Brooklynian, are by S3 Architecture, who are attempting to preserve/restore some of the architectural authenticity of the one-time industrial facility while adapting it for residential use. Plans call for the addition of some boxy upper floors and the reshaping of the ground floor facade into a usable form. Per S3:

Industrial architectural elements are restored, including brick walls, concrete columns and beams, preserving the authentic feel of the factory structure. A courtyard was cut into the middle of the structure, and a 3rd and partial 4th floor are to be added.Altogether the project will have 44 loft apartments. The first two floors will feature "lofty, high-ceiling apartments;" The third floor will be duplex lofts with a modern and streamlined style, i.e., not ersatz former-industrial apartments.
