Williamsburg Bridge Informs New Mixed-use Project
At the foot of the Williamsburg Bridge, a metal grid frame encases the new mixed-use, 13-story mid-rise in reference to the bridge’s robust structure. The brick-based building acknowledges the area’s industrial and brownstone history and reinforces Williamsburg’s pedestrian nature with retail spaces, a community center, and the residential entry and lobby. The two-story plinth matches the neighboring buildings and retains the scale of architecture along the block. With unobstructed views, including the Williamsburg Bridge and Manhattan to the west, the 82-unit apartment tower rises from a large landscaped roof that features garden plots for residents, a dog run, and outdoor cinema. The tower roof is landscaped as well with recreational and sunbathing areas.
