The interiors, designed by Hudson Companies, feature a washer/dryer in every apartment
Here’s one for the books. Fort Greene’s beloved Greenlight Bookstore is opening a second location, at the base of Prospect Lefferts Gardens’ tallest building.
The light-colored brick that will make up the facade is climbing the steel and concrete skeleton at Hudson Companies’ high-rise on Flatbush Avenue in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. The shape and look of the 23-story tower is now visible over the neo-Tudor facades of the recently landmarked Chester Court.
The brick at 626 Flatbush Avenue is up to about the 13th story. The building topped out in January. The architect is Marvel Architects and it should be ready for occupancy early next year.
