Architecture firm ODA really likes stacking boxes. And they really like putting these stacks of boxes in Brooklyn. Park Slope, Crown Heights, Williamsburg, and now Fort Greene (Queens and Manhattan get some, too) will all soon be home to what has become ODA's signature design: a blocky pile of squares. New York YIMBY shared the rendering for the latest in the Lego series, which occupy the corner of Vanderbilt and Myrtle Avenues, currently home to a Gulf station.
Permits were filed in April by Karl Fischer, but he's (thankfully) been replaced by Eran Chen of ODA. The new permits indicate that the building will stand 80 feet tall, and hold 45 apartments. There will be commercial and community space on the ground floor, and the cellar will hold recreational space and bike storage.
