Work Starts at Broken Angel


A sidewalk shed has gone up and work has started at 4-8 Downing Street in Clinton Hill, aka the Broken Angel, where developer and architect Alex Barrett is converting the former art project, once a tenement building, into eight condos.

An Alt 1 permit for 4 Downing Street approved last month specifies an interior and exterior renovation, a reduction in the number of units from nine to eight, and a new certificate of occupancy. According to the permit, the work will cost about $1,100,000. (Two more condos are planned at 8 Downing.)

Thanks to a reader for the tip and the second photo, which shows the demo debris on the site behind the construction shed.
