As part of a feature on a new wave of outdoor terraces in NYC’s upcoming residential buildings, the New York Times got its hands on two new renderings for 1 River Park, part of the conversion of the former Long Island College Hospital campus in Cobble Hill, into a multi-building condo development.
The new renderings give us a first close up look at the entire 15-story building, which will have just 48 apartments. There’s also a rendering of one of the building’s balconies, which appear in undulating shapes on the front facade of the building. The project is being designed by FXCollaborative, and the design director at the firm told the Times that design of the building was inspired by the way the light reflected on the waves of the East River. Some of the terraces will measure as much as 300 square feet.
The River Park megaproject is presently comprised of four other components: The landmarked Polhemus building is being converted into condos; adjacent to this, eight new townhouses are being built and will be called the Polhemus Townhouses; 2 River Park will be a 440-foot condo building located at 339 Hicks Street; and 5 River Park will be a 15-story condo at 347 Henry Street.
