Thread: Fort Greene Development

  1. #1

    Default Fort Greene Development

    Fort Greene
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    The neighborhood of Fort Greene is listed on the National and New York State Registry of Historic Places, and is a New York City designated Historic District. It is bounded, roughly, by The Brooklyn Navy Yard to the north, Flatbush Avenue to the west, Classon Avenue to the east and Atlantic Avenue to the south. Fort Greene is named after a Revolutionary War era fort that was rechristened in honor of General Nathaniel Greene of New Hampshire. General Greene aided General George Washington during the Battle of Brooklyn in 1776. Fort Greene Park is also, obviously, derived from General Greene's name and the neighborhood. In the park is the notable Prison Ships Martyrs monument and crypt, which honors some 11,500 patriots who died aboard British prision ships during the War of Independence. Poet and one-time resident Walt Whitman influenced the creation of Fort Greene Park in 1843.

    In addition to Whitman, Fort Greene has also been the home of poet Marianne Mooore and Richard Wright, the author of Native Son, and the rapper Ol' Dirty Bastard.

    Fort Greene is comprised of many superb examples of mid-19th Century Italianate and Eastlake architecture, most of which is well preserved. The area is the home of the famed Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Brooklyn Music School, Brooklyn Tech, The Paul Robeson Theater, Urban Glass works, 651 Arts perfoming center for African-American presenters, and the Atlantic Center commercial and transportation hub.

    POSTINGS; Fort Greene Developers Get a Lucky Break
    By JOSH BARBANEL
    Published: June 27, 2004, Sunday

    http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpag...55C0A9629C8B63

    When the new owners of the three duplex penthouses atop the GreeneHouse condominium in Brooklyn look out their oversized windows at the panoramic view of the New York skyline, from Staten Island to the Bronx, they will have many of their angry neighbors in Fort Greene's historic district to thank.
    Following protests against the height and design of the 11-story project, the Department of Buildings conducted an audit of the building plans. But rather than reduce the size of the building, the department concluded that the developers could legally add a 12th floor.


    ''The reaction to this was disgusted resignation,'' said Howard Pitsch, chairman of the Fort Greene Association, a civic group, which is now working to change zoning in the area, to eliminate the threat of additional towers. ''It is a done deal now.''

    The building, which is due to be completed in December, will have 27 apartments, 20,800 square feet of office space and 19 parking spaces. It is under construction on the corner of Carlton Avenue and Greene Avenue, at the edge of the historic district of ornate row houses.

    ''This is like going in for an I.R.S. audit and getting a refund,'' said David Mandl, the chief executive of Meltzer/Mandl Architects, the firm that designed the building. ''It is something that never happens.''

    Mr. Mandl said that at issue was a zoning provision called the ''height factor.'' The factor sets the maximum height of a building, based on its footprint, which can be calculated several ways. Eventually, the department came up with a slightly more liberal interpretation than the developers had used.

    In negotiations with neighborhood groups, the developers, David Weiss and Jonathan Jacobs, agreed to replace a limestone street-level facade with terra-cotta-colored brick, which is common in the neighborhood.

    Mr. Weiss said the building would include 10-foot ceilings, balconies for each apartment, large windows, private and shared outdoor decks and a gym.

    Final prices have not been set for the building. But as apartment prices have risen in the city, the projected market prices have risen sharply, to an average of $600 a square foot, which would work out to about $660,000 for a two-bedroom at GreeneHouse. The extra floor allowed the expansion of the three three-bedroom penthouses into duplexes, he said.

    Jerry Minsky, a broker with the Corcoran Group who will market the condos, said he believed that the building was gaining acceptance in the neighborhood. And the nearby low-rise buildings are a selling point. ''It is very unusual to have views like this that will never be compromised,'' he said. JOSH BARBANEL

    375 Myrtle Avenue / 150 Clermont Avenue

    Coming in 2006

    375 Myrtle Avenue / 150 Clermont Avenue is a new 6 story concrete and brick face building located at the corner of Myrtle Avenue and Clermont Avenue, in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. This new development by BRP Development will replace the existing underutilization of the corner with 29 one- and two-bedroom apartments, approximately 7,000 SF of office and retail space, 1,800 SF of commercial storage spots, and 9 below-grade parking spaces.

    The design, by Danois Architects, continues the street wall of Myrtle Avenue at a scale that is consistent with buildings found along the avenue. In an attempt to delicately intertwine the residential fabric of the neighborhood with the commercial strip, the wall of Myrtle Avenue conspicuously wraps around the corner, locating the residential and the office entrances along Clermont Avenue.

    The apartments, will feature ample room sizes, provisions for washers and dryers, and plenty of closet space. Each two-bedroom apartment features two full bathrooms.Occupants will enjoy the amenities offered by an on-site exercise room, and outdoor recreation space.

    This 11-story steel framed Apartment building utilizes a pre-cast plank floor system for fast erection time as required by the owner. The site has existing buildings on two sides that require shoring of the foundations in order to construct the cellar level of the new building. ADGs detailing of the pre-cast seat connection to the steel has allowed for 10 foot floor-to-floor heights reducing building costs while achieving the owners goals.
