Two Four-Story Buildings for Clinton Hill Historic District


Renderings of these new buildings proposed for 269 Washington Avenue and 242 Hall Street surfaced after a Community Board Two meeting notice led us to the website of S3 Architecture. The top rendering is 269 Washington Avenue; below is 242 Hall Street. Each building, at four stories, will go in on a through-lot between Willoughby and Dekalb avenues. The buildings will be connected by a courtyard. Way back in spring the owners filed a building application for ten units, and we heard that it would be a luxury rental primarily made up of large, four-bedroom apartments. The website states there will be ten apartments in each building. Here are more details from the website:

The buildings were fashioned after traditional townhouses in scale and material, with modern interpretations of entry doors, windows with hoods and sills, and a mansard roof carving out rooftop terraces. The ground floor and 4th floors are duplex apartments with lower level recreation spaces or penthouse levels. On other levels are floor-through apartments, fostering communal living with numerous bedrooms per apartment, suited for off-campus co-ed living. Currently filed for approval at the NYC Department of Buildings and Landmarks Preservation Commission. Under construction in 2013.

Looks like they’re really trying to market to the Pratt community. Before any construction takes place, the architects need to get through the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Their date with the CB2 Land Use Committee is Wednesday, February 20th at 5 Metrotech Center, Room LC400.
