The five-story building will come with just six apartments

Via BCN Development

A quirky, somewhat Brutalist-looking residential building will rise just a block away from Fort Greene Park. The five-story building, which is being developed by BCN Development, will feature just six apartments, with pricing currently estimated to range from $700,000 to $1.8 million.

The condo will come with a mix of one, two, and three-bedroom apartments that will all be either duplexes or triplexes. Apartments here will come with 10-foot-tall ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows (almost), Miele and Poggenpohl appliances in the kitchen, and Duravit and Toto fixtures in the bathroom. In terms of square footage, apartments will range from 700 square feet to 1,650 square feet.

The project, which is being designed by architect Murat Mutlu, came about after BCN purchased the narrow plot of land at 137 Carlton Avenue for $1.675 million last month, property records reveal.

As for the unusual design, this is what Mutlu had to say:

“We developed a building design which is made of stacked rectangular boxes that are strategically configured for every floor to accommodate different functions. Each floor has a unique feature such as a canopy, direct views, a sloped skylight, and a setback roof terrace. The building form is sculpted to create a visually distinctive and yet functional structure.”

Construction is expected to get underway in September this year, and is scheduled to wrap up by next summer. What do you make of this design?
