Neo-Traditional Affordable Build Going up in Bed Stuy

291-bainbridge-streetKudos to Harden Van Arnam Architects for their design of affordable housing at 291 Bainbridge Street in Bed Stuy. The size and scale of the building fits in well with its neighbors. We love the green cornice with raised dots, the windows, and the brick details. Bainbridge Manor will be four stories high with 23 units consisting of studios and two-bedrooms. Half the apartments will be for low income families, and half for homeless families “coming directly from the domestic violence shelter system,” said developer New Destiny Housing. On-site services and facilities will include counseling and a children’s indoor playroom. This is just outside the historic district near the Utica stop. When we stopped by, it looked like builder Bruno Frustaci Contracting had reached the fourth floor. Construction started in August. Click through to the jump to see it in progress.
