Construction is nearing the home stretch at 210 Pacific Street — a gleaming brass-tiled 10-unit condo building between Court Street and Boerum Place that looks like it’s been dipped in gold. Brownstoner popped by the nearly finished structure to check out its lustrous facade.

Covered with more than 13,000 custom brass tiles, the building’s exterior is nothing if not unique. Each tile is faceted and appears to be made of solid brass. Do you like the look of it? It’s certainly a bold design choice.

Dimensional tile is a recent interior design trend. It’s all over 19th-century Brooklyn buildings as well, in the form of terra-cotta tiles.

Designed by SBLM Architects, the seven-story, 21,274-square-foot building also uses Passive House techniques for a more energy-efficient living space — including solar-heated hot water. SBLM is known for its LEED-certified designs. The firm also designed the nearby Atlantic Galleria, though that building doesn’t appear to have the same energy efficiency.

The developer of 210 Pacific Street is NAVA Companies — developers of Jersey City’s Canco Lofts. NAVA bought this sizable Boerum Hill lot for $2.8 million in 2012.
