NEW YORK | ~100m | ~300ft | 436 Albee Square | Prep

Revealed: 436 Albee Square, ODA-Designed Downtown Brooklyn Tower



Quote:
In June, YIMBY brought you news of a permit filing for a 28-story tower at 436 Albee Square in downtown Brooklyn, designed by increasingly prolific ODA Architecture. Now, we have obtained a rendering of the project, which is planned to sit on a mid-block site on Gold Street, across from the rising City Point project...



The building is planned to have 150 apartments spread across nearly 120,000 square feet of residential space, for a modest average apartment size of 800 square feet, suggesting rentals.

The tower will also include three stories and 24,000 square feet of retail at its base – a substantial amount of space, but a drop in the bucket compared to the 700,000 square feet under construction at the City Point mega-development.

I don't know why, but this glass stripe that goes to the bottom of the tower irritates me.



Uh, much better...

This design makes no sense.

I hate these asymmetrical cladding designs that are popping up in every city, they don't have any purpouse or reason, they are weird just fot the sake of it. I understand that the architect is trying to be "different" but it's rubbish.

Also with those no into the design. It's not very compelling at all... nothing that really says anything that makes me want to be intrigued.

Nice to see another tower rising in Downtown Brooklyn, but this should be at least twice as tall, the subway access in this neighborhood is pretty much as good as it gets outside of Manhattan.
