    Overview
    COMING SOON!
    Introducing 14 Town Houses, a new development now underway on historic State Street in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. Conceived by cutting edge developers Abby Hamlin and Francis Greenburger, this unique project will create a limited number of carefully crafted, modern single family homes across from a classic row of restored landmark townhouses. Designed for contemporary city living, these 4,000 square foot town houses combine dramatic, double-height entertaining space in an open-plan layout with gracious family quarters that include five bedrooms and four full bathrooms. Daylight will flood these interiors through nine foot high south facing windows, a twenty foot high north facing glass wall, and an eight foot wide skylight above a custom wood and steel stair. With elegant modern detailing, state-of-the-art Bulthaup kitchens, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, a private backyard and roof terrace, these homes are perfect for the sophisticated, design-savvy urbanite.

    14 Town Houses' location is ideal too. With Manhattan a brief subway ride away, you are around the corner from everything in Boerum Hill - unique shopping, fine dining, contemporary culture and entertainment venues, esteemed schools, parks and more. Once you get here, you'll never want to leave.

    This rare opportunity to acquire a brand new, architecturally distinguished urban home won't last. Designed by the award-winning firm of Rogers Marvel Architects, this contemporary row house composition of only 14 will quickly become an exemplary, lived-in modern urban block.

    322 Hicks Street


    http://www.lsgsarchitects.com/display.asp?code=874

    Client: Second Development Services, Inc.
    Project: Hicks Street
    Location: Brooklyn, New York
    Project Type: Housing and Community Development / New Construction
    Description: 322 Hicks Street is a new building on one of the last open sites in the Landmarked District of Brooklyn Heights. For this reason, the project represents a special design challenge in an historic urban fabric. The insertion of a five story multiple dwelling, with luxurious full floor single apartments on floors 2-5 and two generous duplex units with walk-out garden access on the ground floor and basement level, introduces a typology foreign to the neighborhood of single family residences. It was our goal to produce a design that was both contemporary, yet very sensitive to the district, both in the scale of its massing and in its details. For that reason LSGS, working in conjunction with facade consultant Smith-Miller + Hawkinson Architects, developed a proposal to link typologically the building's design to familiar neighborhood structures. The two predominant Brooklyn typologies: the Brownstone and the Warehouse, provided various design cues. From these precedents came the inspiration for the "bay" or oriel window, the size and scale of building, the relationship of building skin to openings, the mitigation of the scale of the building through canopy, and provision of a street scaled space at sidewalk level by the articulation of the ground floor. The resulting design with its front facade inflection serves to unify the entire block, while giving it new focus. This project uses building materials of the highest quality: a Norman size brick with a "historic Brooklyn Heights" orange hue, a shot-peaned stainless steel canopy, steel-section oriel windows, and an extensive glass curtain wall system on the rear facade to take advantage of spectacular New York Harbor views. Interior finishes are of a similar high quality. 322 Hicks building construction will begin in the winter of 2002, with expected completion Fall of 2003.

    POSTINGS: New Brooklyn Heights Condominium; Warehouses And Oriels As Inspiration
    By ROSALIE R. RADOMSKY
    Published: August 25, 2002, Sunday

    http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpag...5BC0A9649C8B63

    The Brooklyn Heights Historic District is known for its 19th-century brownstones, but the design for a new five-story condominium building that won the approval of the district's guardians was uncompromisingly contemporary.

    The design for the new building, to rise on an empty lot at 322 Hicks Street, was approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission in July with the support of both the Brooklyn Heights Association and the Municipal Arts Society. Construction on the $3.5 million project is to start in October and be completed in a year.

    ''Brooklyn Heights has a long tradition of new buildings being contemporary,'' said Brian Hogg, director of preservation at the landmarks commisssion, who described the new design as ''exciting in its underlying inspiration between old and new buildings.''

    In his design for the facade, said Henry Smith-Miller, ''I thought about the single family brownstone with its signature stoop and oriel window and the commercial warehouse with its loading dock and canopy.'' Mr. Smith-Miller's firm, Smith-Miller and Hawkinson Architects, which is noted for its contemporary designs, was brought in to collaborate on the building's design with the firm of Larsen Shein Ginsberg Snyder, whose partner in charge of the project is Douglas F. Korves, after a more traditional design was rejected at a landmarks hearing in March.

    The building's brick exterior, resembling a vertically folded piece of paper, will echo the proportions of facades typical of the neighborhood. Mr. Smith-Miller said the building's loftlike apartments and stainless steel open trellis canopy will recall the ''warehouse ethos'' and the contemporary bay windows will recall the ''usual oriel'' found in the single-family brownstone.

    Gerard F. Vasisko, chairman of the Brooklyn Heights Association's landmarks committee and a partner at the architecture firm Gruzen Samton, applauded the design. ''We believe historic districts are living, breathing entities reflecting the best architecture of the times,'' he said. ''For new buildings, why not have contemporary aspirations, materials and techniques of that age?''

    There will be one apartment to each floor except for the first, which will have a maisonette with an entrance leading to the street and will share a lobby with another apartment. Apartment prices are expected to be in the $800,000 to $1.4 million range, with harbor views from the second floor up. All apartments -- about 1,900 square feet -- will have three bedrooms and fireplaces.

    Louis Greco, who is involved in a number of other projects, with more traditional designs, in Downtown Brooklyn and is consultant to 322 Hicks Street L.L.C., the developer, whose principal is his wife, Linda, said: '' We took a bold step. If I had 150 units, I'd be nervous. With six units we could make a statement.'' ROSALIE R. RADOMSKY

    A (Contemporary) Landmark Grows in Brooklyn
    http://www.archnewsnow.com/features/Feature64.htm

    In an unusual turn for typical historic neighborhood watchdog groups, the architectural custodians of the Brooklyn Heights Historic District have approved a decidedly contemporary design for a new five-story condominium building designed by Smith-Miller + Hawkinson Architects with Larsen Shein Ginsberg Snyder, Architect-of-Record. The Landmarks Preservation Commission, Brooklyn Heights Association, and the Municipal Arts Society gave the go-ahead for the building to rise on an empty lot at 322 Hicks Street. The red brick exterior, bay windows, and stainless-steel trellis canopy are in keeping with the neighborhood noted for it’s classic 19th century brownstones, but with a distinctly modern attitude. There will be one three-bedroom, loft like apartment per floor, each with a fireplace (and views of the harbor) from the second floor up, and two ground floor duplex apartments. Construction is expected to begin in October, and be completed in about a year.

    POSTINGS: At State and Hicks Streets; In Brooklyn, A New Condo With 11 Units
    By RACHELLE GARBARINE

    http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpag...50C0A9649C8B63

    A five-story building rising at State and Hicks Streets is the first newly built condominium in Brooklyn Heights in nearly two decades. Called the State House, it is to have 11 one- to three-bedroom apartments as well as an enclosed garage with 16 parking spaces that are for sale. The building, designed to fit in with its neighborhood of 19th-century brownstones, fills a long-vacant site not far from an entrance ramp to the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.

    The developer of the $10 million project is 56 State Street of Brooklyn, which bought the site two years ago from a previous developer who had planned a rental building but after getting approvals decided not to proceed. Moti Pinson, the president of 56 State Street, said he had switched to condominiums ''because this is a family neighborhood and I wanted to give a product -- larger luxury-style apartments -- that people could buy and establish roots.''

    The sales market in Brooklyn Heights ''is as strong as ever,'' said Michael Dowling, who with his partner, Sandra, runs Michael Dowling Ltd. and Brooklyn Heights Real Estate, the sales agents for the State House.

    The apartments will have from 1,239 to 2,032 square feet. Top-floor units will each have a private roof deck. Sales are to start once the condominium's offering plan is accepted by the state; Mrs. Dowling said that approval was expected soon. Prices have not been set but they are estimated at from $590,000 to $1.89 million. The cost of parking spaces has not been set.

    Ira S. Pinkus, president of Warman Pinkus Munoz Architects of Great Neck, which designed the building, said that it is clad in the salmon-colored brick that is common in the area and that it will have oversized windows. Completion is expected this summer. RACHELLE GARBARINE

    Dec. 7, 2004 (Brooklyn Heights, N.Y.)—On Wed., Dec. 8, St. Francis College celebrates the “topping out” of its new academic center under construction on Remsen Street. At the ceremony, the steel beam to be placed at the top of the building will be signed by College administrators, student leaders, local government officials, and major donors to the project. Remarks will be given by City Council Speaker Gifford Miller.

    “We are proud to honor those who made this project possible—from funders to the architects, engineers, and construction crew,” said President Frank J. Macchiarola, Ph.D., ’62. “The entire team’s commitment to high-quality design and construction makes it possible for St. Francis College to serve students, the community, and New York City in a meaningful way for the near future and beyond.”

    Inherent to the academic center’s design are environmentally sustainable components, related specifically to the building’s heating and cooling system as well as its ability to maximize natural light. In addition, most building materials will be made of recycled materials. The 35,000 square foot center, which is scheduled to open in November 2005, will stand adjacent to the College’s main building. It will house 14 “smart” classrooms, a state-of-the-art library, a 90-seat theater-lecture hall, facilities for the communications arts department, an Internet-ready cyber lounge for students, and administrative space for several academic departments.

    The ceremony takes place in Callahan Center, 180 Remsen Street, 8:30 a.m. (Breakfast will be served.) The ceremony precedes the actual placement of the final beam by about three weeks. The timing of the ceremony was planned to accommodate attendee availability vis-à-vis the College’s holiday schedule. The beam will be available for signing for several days after the ceremony by the College’s student body.

    The academic center was designed by Helpern Architects. Turner Construction is leading construction.

    St. Francis College, founded in 1858 by the Franciscan Brothers of Brooklyn, is located in Brooklyn Heights, New York. Since its founding, the College has pursued its Franciscan mission to provide an affordable, high-quality education to students from New York City’s five boroughs and beyond.

    Hotel St. George
    Brooklyn, New York


    http://www.gruzensamton.com/pdf/Hotel_St_George.pdf

    The Hotel St. George complex, located in the heart of the
    Brooklyn Heights Historic District in Downtown Brooklyn, suffered
    a devastating fire in 1995 which destroyed much of the
    original 1888 hotel structure and partially damaged the 1901
    wing known as the "office" building. The Gruzen Samton
    design for this project incorporates new construction on the
    original site of the hotel, and together with the renovation of
    the office building, will create a new 220-room boutique hotel in
    Downtown Brooklyn. The project has been approved by the
    New York City Landmarks Commission.
    G R U Z E N S A M T O N L L P
    Hotels
    The new building is designed to reflect the colors and textures of
    the adjacent Weller Building (1924) with a soft Tuscan beige
    brick, accented with limestone and terra cotta details. The main
    lobby of the new hotel will be through the office building
    entrance, as it was in the 1901 scheme, and will include the
    restoration of the vintage bronze doors and entry surrounds
    installed in the 1930's. The hotel's famous marquee will be fully
    restored to its original elegance with the addition of a backlit
    glass skirt.
    The top floor of the office building will incorporate a design
    which provides a modern interpretation of the original observation
    deck atop this 12-story building, the tallest building in
    Brooklyn in 1901. The new building is designed to link the hotel
    with the rest of the complex, much of which has already been
    converted to condominium apartments, and will further enhance
    the neighborhood with new bluestone sidewalks and trees.
    The hotel will have a contemporary theme. The Hotel will have
    a state of the art business center and a direct connection to an
    adjacent health club which includes a swimming pool, basketball
    courts, and squash courts. The 220 rooms will include built-in
    wardrobes, marble baths, and state-of-the-art internet connections.
    The ground floor will contain an elegant lobby with a
    skylit garden, and a restaurant and bar for the enjoyment of the
    hotel guests and the public.

    Just seven years after the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge became Brooklyn's first new hotel since 1934, a brightening tourist picture is fueling a $77 million, 190,000-sq.-ft. expansion. "We don't have the room base" to meet demand, said Mike Brenner, senior vice president at Muss Development, the hotel's New York-based owner, which is also developer and construction manager on the project.

    Located at Renaissance Plaza in downtown Brooklyn, the 24-story addition designed by San Francisco-based SB Architects will increase the hotel's capacity from 376 to 656 rooms. A two-level pedestrian bridge will link the poured-in-place concrete structure to the existing building. Completion is scheduled for fall 2006.

    Brooklyn checks in

    Atlantic Ave. gets a hotel condo


    By DAKOTA SMITH

    BROOKLYN’S Marriott hotel is getting some new competition — and you can live there.

    Named The Smith after its location on the corner of Atlantic Avenue and Smith Street, the 13-floor building will house 50 luxury residential condos and a 93-room hotel.

    The edge of downtown Brooklyn may seem like an unlikely spot for a hotel-con-do building. But The Smith is just the latest in a line of new residential developments in the neighborhood (see box), an area once known more for its discount stores and courthouses.

    "The neighborhood is definitely up-and-coming," says Danny Kim, development manager of Boymelgreen Developers, the firm behind The Smith.

    There’s even an attmept to dress up the area by calling it BoCoCa (for the intersection of Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, and Carroll Gardens).

    Although no deal has been finalized with a hotel chain, The Smith itself will likely house a "boutique-like hotel" rather than a large chain, according to Kim. Sales for the building, which will open in June 2006, are expected to begin this summer.

    Prices for the residences, a mix of one-, two- and three-bedrooms, ranging in size from 740 to 1,400 square feet, are still being determined, but costs should fall in the $700-a-square-foot range, Kim says.

    The building itself will have a red-brick façade, with terraces jutting off the top penthouse units. The Smith’s amenities will include a gym, likely housed in the hotel, as well as concierge services.

    Currently, the New York Marriott is the only large-scale hotel in Brooklyn.

    The Marriott, located on Adams Street, is itself undergoing a massive renovation. When construction is finished in fall 2006, 280 rooms will have been added, for a total of 656.

    The Smith, meanwhile, hopes to draw those working at Brooklyn’s courthouses, as well as parents visiting area colleges.

    Additionally, when Pier 12 in Red Hook begins servicing cruise ships in spring 2006, the tourist crowd may opt to bunk at The Smith.

    To maintain the integrity of The Smith’s neighborhood, the local community board asked that the residences resemble townhouses, according to Marvin Meltzer, vice president of Meltzer/Mandl Architects, which designed the residential units.

    "They didn’t want a big glass structure," Meltzer says.
