Updated Rendering for Unusual Building on Unusually Shaped Lot in Prospect Heights


We found a new, more detailed rendering tacked to the construction fence at 313 St. Marks Avenue in Prospect Heights, where S3 Architecture has designed a 76-unit rental building around a courtyard. The rendering shows more detail about the facade, which apparently will be made up of blocks of concrete or some other material with fine lines and a speckled texture subtle gradations of color. One of the most interesting things about the building is the shadow-box window frames, which in the first rendering were depicted in a brighter shade of neon yellow.

The building will have an interior courtyard and an unusual footprint to accommodate the oddly shaped lot, which runs between Underhill and Washington. A peek through the fence revealed the site has been cleared although construction has not yet started. Click through to the jump to see the site.

What do you think of the building design?
