The exterior of 59 Frost Street, an affordable housing development in Williamsburg, was looking good when we passed by Sunday. Almost all the windows were in and the facade appeared to be finished.
In fact, it looks better in person than in photos because the 3-D effect of the recessed windows is more apparent. You’d never guess from the outside this is an affordable building.
Unfortunately, it sits across from the BQE and all its exhaust fumes, as does the recently built luxury rental LeonardPointe next door. They used to be on one tax lot and were both developed by Rabsky Group. The building has 47 units, and Curtis & Ginsberg is the architect of record, according to permits.
What do you think of the design so far?
