City Tech’s brand-new build is actually happening! The old Klitgord Building at 285 Jay Street, on the corner of Tillary Street, is closed and construction crews have started up with interior demolition. The school also filed an application with the Department of Buildings for a new eight-story build, although it looks like the DOB disapproved the plans this month. The architect on record is Perkins Eastman, an international planning, design and consulting firm that has worked on many campuses before. The rendering above comes from this Brooklyn Eagle article published this fall. Back then, they reported that the eight-story build would be 149 feet tall with 356,389 square feet of academic, community and facility space. The building will hold new facilities for the science and clinical health programs, a new theater, a wellness center and athletic facilities. The long-ago plans for a huge residential/educational tower built at the site by Forest City Ratner and City Tech never came through.

OK, it’s really narrow and there are a lot of down lights but this Greenwood Heights house at 396A 19th Street looks pretty cute to us. Goes to show what some great rugs and Timorous Beasties wallpaper can do, right? That bath looks pretty slick, and we also like the new unpainted clapboard exterior. We’re not so […]
