    Default Rockwell place

    Here's some construction pics of site 15 on that NY Post map (96 Rockwell Place). It's a 6 story Piano Factory from around 1900 being converted with a 6 story additon.

    With Forte poking out behind - Flatbush/Lafayette:

    This Karl Fischer will be across the street from Gene Kaufman's ugly dud.

    Too bad it's the dud that will be bigger but oh well, that's usually how things work out for this city anyway.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this nice Karl Fischer gets scrapped while the Kaufman gets fast-tracked.

    Projects --> Exterior --> 388 Bridge st



    I love making random discoveries. This would be Brooklyn's tallest for a while...it has a nice tapered top and would add nicely to the skyline.

    ^ That building would have look alot better without those crappy balconies. The Oro is looking fine and it seems that is about almost done.

    Great pics BK Rider. I'm personally a big fan of The Oro; the other buildings are average.

    Default Wandering around today, bored.

    New Angles of 200 Livingston - looking pretty good!

    1.

    2.

    The horrid Luxe+Pop is below. How this POS managed to take five years to build is beyond me. It is bad in a way that even Gene Kaufman could not dream up. The brick work is atrocious and the teatment on the south facade versus the west facade is mind boggling. Whoa be the sucker that buys a unit in this instant blight. I was shooting pics of 200 Livingston Street and this local woman came up and asked me if I was an architect. She was very friendly, but quickly went off on how absolutely offensive Luxe-Pop is. She knew her stuff about new development and, like everyone other person in Brooklyn with eyesight, she just could not believe how ugly this building had come out.

    LOVEly. anyone who can make it over should check out the new livingston building in person - it's looking really slick. this immediate area is going to be something else if all the plans in the works come to fruition. i'm a big half glass full kind of guy when it comes to brooklyn, but even i would have been a bit skeptical if you told me back in 1985 that downtown bk would be what it may be come 2020. these are great times to be a brooklynite. drink it up, peoples.
