We found this rendering on the fence at 1444 Bedford Avenue between Park Place and Prospect Place in Crown Heights, where a four-story building is going up on a vacant lot. The apartment house will have eight units and 7,312 square feet of space, according to new building permits issued in January. The architect is Joseph Mucciolo P.C. The 2,700-square-foot lot changed hands between two LLCs last December for $1,070,000, according to PropertyShark. When we stopped by yesterday, it looked like the site was being excavated. We’ve included a picture after the jump.
The unusual design makes us think of a modern version of Queen Anne with its red and white coloring. The flat white sections remind us of 19th century metal bay windows and turrets. What do you think of the design?
