New York YIMBY has posted a new rendering of the Brookland Capital buildings under construction at 735 and 737 Bergen Street, between Washington and Underhill in Prospect Heights. Brookland head Boaz Gilad asked architects Issac and Stern to re-think the project’s design, after Curbed compared the original designs to “an establishing shot in a movie about a dystopian police-state” back in April.
The new design replaces light bricks with a darker, mixed facade, and incorporates rust-colored accents, planters and balconies on the fifth-floor. New York YIMBY also noted that the building looks less angular, because “two of the angled window bays have been replaced with ones parallel to the sidewalk.” Both of the 8,200 square foot buildings will rise five stories. Number 735 will have eight units, and 737 will have nine. The original rendering is below. What do you think of the new look?
