Construction on one of the ten buildings coming to the former Rheingold Brewery site in Bushwick will begin this summer, with demolition of an existing warehouse set to start next month, DNAinfo reports. When complete towards late 2016, the 385-apartment building at 123 Melrose Street and Evergreen Avenue will have the nice amenity of an eighth-floor outdoor pool, 71 attended parking spaces, ground-floor retail and, curiously, 12 cellar-level apartments. Twenty percent of the units in the Read Property Group-developed building will be priced below market rate; looking at permits, its hard not to jump to conclusions over where in the building those apartments will be. S9 Architecture, a Perkins Eastman affiliate also behind the Staten Island Observation Wheel, is the project architect.
When complete, the 10-building complex will bring 1,000 apartments, about 300 of which will be priced below market rate, to the area.
