In April, a tipster sent word that four pre-war walk-ups on the corner of Livingston Street and Boerum Place were being razed, and a quick look at DOB permits confirmed that yup, they were indeed being replaced by a new 21-story building. Now, YIMBY's gotten a first look at the building that will rise on the site and it looks very Downtown Brooklyn of the here and now. The Ennead Architects-designed building will have two facadesa glass facade that faces Livingston and a more opaque facade along Boerum Placeas well as 14,000-square-feet of ground-floor retail topped by 110 apartments averaging 850 square feet.
The project is being developed by Quinlan, and joins City Point, 388 Bridge Street, 66 Rockwell Place, and Avalon's new tower in ushering in a massive number of apartments (by some guesses, over 9,000 by 2018) to the neighborhood.
