Building of the Day

123 Melrose

123 Melrose Street, Brooklyn, NY 11206

Architect: ODA New York

Situated on the former site of Brooklyn’s Rheingold Brewery, the project will generate 1,000,000 sf of apartment units in Bushwick, 20% of which will be affordable. The project will host a multitude of communal spaces open to the neighborhood, while a 17,850 sf public park will bisect the development creating a green promenade and two 400 by 200 feet blocks. These masses are further perforated by a sequence of meandering, interconnected courtyards which ultimately lead to the promenade. Over the pair of these NY city blocks, ODA superimposed the layout of woven streets in a typical old town core.
