At last we have a rendering for the long-stalled Scarano-designed building planned for 538 Washington Avenue in Clinton Hill. We think it looks really good. We like the way the facade relates to the street with lots of windows, colors and different materials. It looks like there will be a copper-colored metal screen — with window-sized openings — covering balconies and hiding the massiveness of the building behind it.
After having been stalled for years, construction is moving quickly since we last checked in August. As reported, developer Sam Boymelgreen bought the site last year. We couldn’t see behind part of the construction fence, but it looks like the five-story, eight-unit building is close to topping out.
