The former St. Mark's Evangelical Lutheran Church of Bushwick is poised to become 99 rental apartments under the lead of Cayuga Capital, following last year's DOB plan disapproval. At a recent real estate panel attended by BBH, Cayuga shed more details about the conversion, namely that it will have studios to two-bedrooms, with just a few three-bedrooms. The church's steeple will house a triplex, top-floor units will have teraces, and 20-percent of the apartments will be priced affordably. Cayuga's James Wiseman is apparently not impressed with the site's rendering, and was amusingly quoted as saying "This is not the rendering it's terrible. It's like a rendering I did." (Touché.) The architect of record is Hustvedt Cutler Architects, who has their work cut out for them as Cayuga plans on repurposing the church's interior furnishings and pews, although how is not really clear.
