    Default Cheese or Art?

    Agreed, even on his bad days he is above average, IMO. Brooklyn is lucky to have him, and I am interested to see how his buildings are regarded in future generations. Clearly, they have a distinct style all their own - often outlandishly contrasting their neighboring buildings - and firmly making.

    Impossible to ignore

    Latest on One Prospect Park


    Work was supposed to begin this autumn on the reconstruction of Eastern Parkway, but so far, all is quiet.

    The renovation of the Central Library entry is chugging along. Included is a new auditorium beneath the plaza, which will have kiosks and a cafe.

    I wouldn't exactly call them humongous (size-wise) but they are very nice looking.

    I posted this here because I thought the crown heights thread was merged with this one! Peace.
    That was a thought, but this thread title was changed to Prospect Heights.

    I'll move your post to the Crown Heights thread.

    Default 892 Bergen Street?

    Does anyone know the details as to what is being built at the 892 Bergen Street site? It's 3 parcels, around 15,000 sq ft. Construction is underway with about 4 levels so far completed. Thanks in advance.

    According to DOB permits, it will be 10 stories, 38 units and the architectural firm is Edelman Sultan Knox Wood.

    Checking out their work on their website, I'm sorry to say that it will most likely be ugly.

    It looks like there's another new building (15 stories) that just went up to the west of 892 with the tower portion on St. Marks and the lowrise portion extending through to Bergen.

    What does it look like, BFM?

    Vander-rific! Avenue to be closed to cars in June

    By Ben Muessig
    The Brooklyn Paper


    Vanderbilt Avenue will become the latest stretch of mean street to become a pedestrian plaza, closing to automotive traffic every Sunday in June.


    The city will shut down a four-block section of the boulevard between Bergen Street and Park Place between noon and 5 pm on June 7, 14, 21 and 28, turning the street over to Heights residents for recreation, leisure, and shopping.


    “This is going to be great for everybody,” said Danae Oratowski, who is organizing the “Summer Streets” program with the Prospect Heights Neighborhood Development Council, the Vanderbilt Avenue Merchants District, and the Department of Transportation. “It’s about bringing the community together and offering some innovative open space.”


    When Vanderbilt Avenue is closed, Heights residents will have the chance to relax at café tables in the middle of the street, listen to live music, ride bikes in any lane they choose, peruse the wares of Vanderbilt shops, help clean tree pits, or attend a fashion show. Organizers are also planning face painting and a chalk mural project for children.


    Some neighborhood merchants are looking forward to the Sunday events, staking out different territory from some of the counterparts in Williamsburg who opposed a similar street closure program there.


    “It’s going to be a pretty well-rounded thing, but it’s not a street fair. There will be no tube socks and sausage and pepper guys — just the homegrown merchants,” said Steve Commender, owner of the Forest Floor, a flower shop. “It will give us a chance to utilize the street in a way a little bit out of the ordinary.”


    Vanderbilt Avenue isn’t the first thoroughfare to experiment with summertime street closings.


    Last year, both Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg and Montague Street in Brooklyn Heights were turned into temporary open space for pedestrians.


    “Williamsburg Walks” will return this summer, but it remains uncertain if the Montague Street event will be held this summer, organizers told The Brooklyn Paper.

    Default 904 Pacific Street

    Prospect Heights And The Balconies Within

    August 14, 2009, by Chad Smith

















    Loadingdock5 Architecture, they of Brooklyn balcony madness and passive solar goodness are soldiering forward with yet another Pacific Street wonder in Prospect Heights: 904 Pacific Street. The project comes with the other Hello Living building features, with raw painted concrete, simple glass walls, and the exterior balcony walkways we've come to know and love from them. This building is on two zoning lots, and so they placed a diagonal balcony on that line, dividing the structure in two and providing access to what looks like a carriage house in back. Refreshing simplicity is the new luxury?
