Hudson Companies just sent us this new rendering (above and below) for the 170-unit building they are planning at the corner of Nostrand and Clarkson avenues in East Flatbush. The architect for 1295 Nostrand Avenue, also known as 310 Clarkson, is Jonathan Kirschenfeld, of Floating Pool fame.
The parcel down the street Hudson just closed on (see our 9:30 am post today) will be a separate building. That one will have about 250 apartments, and the architect will be CetraRuddy, a Hudson exec told us.
Both buildings will have retail on the ground floor. The first project will break ground before the end of the spring. The project down the block at 318-350 Clarkson Avenue will break ground in 2016, Hudson told us. Both deals were brokered by CPEX, incidentally.
We think the design for 1295 Nostrand/310 Clarkson is one of the most attractive for a new building in Brooklyn we’ve seen in years. Sure, it’s a big apartment building and not row houses, but there are lots of apartment buildings out here already. The brick and windows should fit in nicely with the area, and we like the stores at ground level.
The patterned brick is a lovely detail, and we also like the mid-century-style corner windows and striped rows of shaded glass.
What do you think of it?
