Renderings for the four-story, 75-apartment building destined for 313 St. Mark's Avenue in Prospect Heights just came out, and boy are they... interesting. A hat tip to the IMBY blog, which nabbed the images from the website of S3 Architecture, which filed for a permit for the property with the Department of Buildings on February 4 that is pending approval. Though the building will only rise to 50 feet in height, those garish neon yellow window frames against the gray facade are more than a bit conspicuous, especially in a neighborhood also filled with brownstones and prewar beauties. The projected interiors, done by Durukan Design, are more tasteful: hip, contemporary furnishings in open layouts with exposed brick, plus trendy touches like a painted-on floor-to-ceiling erasable blackboard in a kitchen. Construction is expected to start this year, according to DOB documents.
