Rendering of 26 West Street by Karl Fischer

When Brownstoner last wrote about architect Karl Fischer’s underwhelming design for 26 West Street, we acknowledged that it was “a cut above” his average work. But the latest rendering of this seven-story 96-unit Greenpoint building — though still an architectural patchwork — is almost not bad.

What do you think?


This U-shaped, Karl Fischer-designed apartment building at 88 Richardson Street in Williamsburg had most of its windows and part of its facade installed when we stopped by last week. The large development will have seven stories, 188 units and 139,702 square feet when it’s finished, according to the permits. There will also be 110 off-street parking spaces.


The Karl Fischer-designed rental building at 544 Union Avenue in Willliamsburg, The Union, is now 60 percent leased, tells us. The building, located on Union between Withers and Frost two blocks from McCarren Park, started leasing in November.

Rents at the glassy 94-unit building range from $2,292 a month for a studio to $3,988 a month for a two-bedroom. There are also a few three-bedrooms that don’t seem to be on the market yet.

Amenities include a putting green, a cabana, yoga room, billiard room and library, according to its website.
