The latest Rheingold Brewery development will be big, modern and colorful.
Renderings show a modern, boxy building with a white, brown and orange paneled facade and glass balconies. The substantial size of the building, which appears to take up most of a block, is visually reduced by different colored sections.
The new building will stand six stories and will contain 95 units, according to DOB filings. The architect’s website shows an eight-story building with 130 units.
The architect is ND Architecture and the developer is Rabsky Group.
ND Architecture has established a reputation for creative design on a typical budget. Principal Nataliya Donskoy is a former protege of architect Robert Scarano. Recent projects include rental apartments on Kent Street near the waterfront in Greenpoint.
Rabsky, a force in Brooklyn development, is also behind another building on the site of the former brewery, 10 Montieth Street, and is redeveloping part of the former Pfizer site in the Broadway Triangle not far from here.
The brewery, which took up many blocks in Bushwick, was torn down in 1981. In the early 2000s, an award-winning complex of affordable housing was completed on part of the site. In 2013, the remaining undeveloped blocks were rezoned to allow housing.
For-profit developments will bring blocks of market-rate luxury housing to the traditionally working class neighborhood.
