Construction has started on the all-concrete artists’ studio building at 100 Bogart Street in Bushwick, a spokesman for the building’s architect, Gene Kaufman, let us know. When we stopped by Monday, there was so much snow on the ground, it was difficult to read the progress at the site.
It looks like digging for the foundation has begun — or the site hasn’t yet been cleared. In any case, the one-story warehouse that previously occupied this corner is gone.
The developer is Vlat LLC. Concrete expert IBK Construction Group LLC is creating the exposed-concrete exterior walls, the architect firm said. Click through to see inside the construction fence.
