Sure, the rendering isn’t all that surprising, but we’ve gone almost one year without knowing what the three new townhouses would look like at 357-361 Henry Street between Amity and Congress. (The project actually received a Stop Work Order for doing work without Landmarks permission.) Architect duties on the project recently switched from BKSK Architects to PACS Architecture. Paul Cepece, the partner in charge of the project, tells us that the above image (and a few more after the jump) were designed by BKSK and approved by Landmarks. PACS was subsequently hired to complete the project and redesign certain aspects of the interior, while maintaining the original BKSK facades. This is a busy corner as far as new construction goes: the former Lamm Institute is still under construction and the new build at 110 Amity just lost its scaffolding.

We took a tour around Forest City Ratner’s fascinating modular apartment factory at the Navy Yard yesterday, where reps from FCRC said they’ll begin shipping out the fully constructed units next week. They’ll stack the units to create the first Atlantic Yards residential tower, the 32-story building under construction next to the Barclays Center that […]
The architectural and scenic wonders of France, Belgium and Germany have long been varied and great. In the summer of 1846, Calvert Vaux and his co-worker and friend, George Truefitt, left their London mentor, the great British architect Lewis Nockalls Coddingham, and embarked upon a Continental tour. They spent the summer touring the great cities, […]
A crumbling wood-clad 19th century row house on Smith Street with all its trim intact is probably going to be altered beyond recognition soon, according to neighborhood blog Pardon Me For Asking.
