    Default Brooklyn Law School Dormitory

    Floors: 22
    Height: 265 ft
    Architect: Robert A.M. Stern
    Year: 2004
    Status: 2005 completed

    Location: Boerum Place and Adams Street
    The Brooklyn Law School Dormitory is the Brooklyn Law School's solution to student housing problems. The height and number of floors was being debated by a Quaker meeting hall across the street, but the building has apparently risen to its full intended height.

    - Will have 360-400 beds.
    - The site is in a special zoning district which limits the height to 120 feet. However, the school successfully argued that the new housing was absolutely necessary and the project went through at a taller height.
    - Style is postmodern.

    New Student Residence
    Feil Hall

    Feil Hall, Brooklyn Law School’s magnificent new student residence, will open in the summer of 2005. Located in Brooklyn Heights just three blocks from the law school’s main building, Feil Hall will provide spacious, affordable and convenient campus living for approximately 360 students.

    Feil Hall’s 239 furnished apartments will include a mixture of studios and one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom units. Each student will have his or her own private bedroom. All apartments have full kitchens and one or two private bathrooms. Many have panoramic views of Brooklyn, New York Harbor, and Manhattan.

    Designed by acclaimed architect Robert A. M. Stern, Dean of the Yale School of Architecture, the hall was named in recognition of the generosity of the Feil Family Foundation. The top floor will be home to the Jeffrey D. Forchelli Conference Center, which will be the site of academic symposia and other law school events. The ground floor will feature Geraldo’s, a cyber café.

    No comment on the name.

    "Court Street has always been a stable and diverse commercial strip that's just gotten better. It was never funky and terrible, like Smith Street used to be," says Austin.

    John McFadden, the owner of Staubitz Market, an 87-year-old Cobble Hill butcher shop, is thrilled he bought his building when he acquired the business.

    "The rents have gone up so much, if you didn't own your own building, I'd probably think about whether it'd be worth staying," McFadden says.

    William Ross, Brooklyn executive director of sales for Halstead Property, estimates that due to strong interest and limited availability, retail rents will go up 15 percent to 20 percent in the coming year. He expects residential rentals to go up around 15 percent as well, with home sales jumping 10 percent to 12 percent.

    Adding to the condo pool is 119 Court, a work in progress, with nine separate three-bedrooms. Prices haven't been determined, but a model should be ready in January.

    If the apartments go for $700 a square foot, as expected, prices for the units would range from $1.4 million to $1.75 million.

    Boymelgreen Developers name J/Brice Design International of Boston for boutique hotel in Brooklyn

    Award-winning hotel interior design firm — J/Brice Design international of Boston — is gaining momentum with contracts from international real estate developers, REITS, and major hotel chains. Contract with Boymelgreen Developers is latest.

    BOSTON, MA (PRWEB) August 18, 2004 -- Brooklyn, New York-based Boymelgreen Developers, LLC has selected J/Brice Design International, Inc. of Boston, MA for the interior design of the hotel at Atlantic Court on Atlantic Avenue and Smith Street in Brooklyn.

    Founded in 1989 by Jeffrey Ornstein, J/Brice has become an award-winning industry bellwether and the largest firm of its kind in New England. Boymelgreen Developers, has charged the firm with creating the hotel interiors for the property, which will include 84 guestrooms on floors two through four, while floors 5-13 will be sold as one- and-two bedroom apartments, and luxury penthouse duplexes.

    Explained Danny Kim, Boymelgreen development manager, "The 13-story building, slated to open in early 2006, features a masonry appearance designed to integrate the structure with its surrounding brownstone and brick environment." Architect is Meltzer Mandl Architects, PC of New York and Alisa Construction, Inc. a Boymelgreen operation, is managing construction.

    In making the announcement Kim, stated, "J/Brice has made a name for itself as an international design firm. The firm is able to interpret the property owner’s vision in exciting and innovative ways that resonate with the market. Jeff’s success with the award-winning The Muse Hotel in Times Square and the Westminster Hotel in Livingston, New Jersey, that won first place in Lodging Hospitality’s 2004 design competition figured into our decision."

    Boymelgreen Developers, LLC is an established real estate development company with operations located in New York City, Toronto and Miami with projects in the pipeline worth $6 billion. Boymelgreen, which is actively interested in furthering its involvement in the hospitality industry, was selected out of a field of eight competing companies to develop the $3.3 million Brooklyn site. In addition to the hotel and residences, the property will include retail operations, underground parking and a community facility. The area is already attracting new retail and restaurant operations and the new hotel is expected to increase momentum.

    Combined Lobby & Restaurant
    The Hotel interior will be contemporary chic with a subtle underpinning of the Art Deco era — ala the Chrysler Building — to reinforce the property’s relationship to New York through historical and architectural references.

    Boymelgreen is introducing an innovation in public space configuration by eliminating physical, perceptual and functional boundaries between the lobby and its surrounding amenities. The combined public space will have numerous private areas ideal for individuals and intimate groups. A cyber café will be included in the scheme. Central to the concept is the availability of wait service throughout the public space for cocktails, beverages and dining.

    "The integrated lobby-lounge offers more options, greater convenience and a higher-level of service. Guests will be able to carry on a quiet conversation or read while enjoying espresso or dining, yet they will be surrounded with the energy and excitement of a smart New York hotel," explains Ornstein.

    All guestrooms will be completed with high-end furniture, fixtures and finishing details using luxurious materials, a range of textures and richly toned fabrics. J/Brice has, for example, specified unique custom wall units in exotic hardwoods to serve as closets and desks giving the property a fashionable Euro look. Plasma TVs complete the picture.

    The design firm eliminated the conventional panoply of desk lamps, and light fixtures in favor of lighted wall surfaces and dramatically lit recessed niches. "The entire guestroom comes alive and the mood may be varied to suit every activity — from getting ready for a morning business meeting to an evening of romance," observes June Ericson, a senior J/Brice Design project director.

    Since its founding in 1994, Boymelgreen has become a prominent force in Brooklyn’s revitalization. In addition to the new downtown hotel project, the developer has four commercial, retail and residential projects underway in the historic waterfront park district of Fulton Ferry, known as DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge Overpasses). While 80 percent of this 70-acre park will be open space, development of the commercial space is guided by the Master Plan calling for character, quality and sensitivity to Brooklyn’s historic roots. Other local Boymelgreen properties include Hudson Park Riverside at 323 West 96 Street at Riverside and RKO Plaza in Queens, a mixed-use residential and commercial project.

    J/Brice Design International, Inc. has been designated an Interior Design Giant, and Architectural Giant since 1991 and has directed hotel design projects throughout the US, with emphasis on the East Coast, Las Vegas and California. Overseas, the firm has served the Taj Hotels in India and developed properties in Dubai, UAE. In 2004, Lodging Hospitality awarded J/Brice first-place honors for its design of the Westminster Hotel in Livingston, New Jersey. J/Brice ranks 24th out of 100 national firms, its staff has over 150 hotel/restaurant projects to its credit, and the confidence of all major hotel chains as a preferred design team. Founder Jeffrey Ornstein shuttles between J/Brice offices in Boston and New York. The Firm’s Los Angeles office is scheduled to open in September.

    Default Boulevard East

    Project #11

    Boulevard East
    53 Boerum Place
    Brooklyn, NY11201

    Official website:

    Brooklyn’s luxury bar has just been raised a bit higher at the 99-unit, 11-story Boulevard East at 53 Boerum Place. Readying for occupancy in December, it’s the first new construction in downtown Brooklyn’s new Redevelopment Zone. Tech-smart beyond imagination (including integrated home networks and radiant-heated bathroom floors in every unit) and amenity-filled (it has a fitness center and a gorgeous garden courtyard that’s perfect for sipping lattes), the studio, one- and two-bedroom homes range from 772 to 970 square feet. Add to that jaw-dropping views of the Empire State Building and the Verrazano Bridge from the upper floors. Ranging in price from $250,000 to the mid-$700,000s, more than 20 percent of the units sold on the first day they went on the market says Melinda Magnett, Corcoran Group Brooklyn president. “Here we are, three weeks later, and more than 50 percent have sold, some sight unseen, over the phone.”

    Does anybody know who designed this building?
