Overview

The 8-story residential condominium building at 285 Driggs Avenue on the northeastern corner of McCarren Park in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn is known as Lothology and it is one of the simpler and more attractive designs by Robert M.

It is adjacent to another Scarano project, Manhattan Park, this building, at 297 Driggs Avenue, which is also 8 stories high.

The two towers are separated by a few feet but seen from an angle they are similar in visual effect to the two much taller residential towers at 980 and 985 Fifth Avenue that were developed separately and were designed by different architects but which appear to compliment each other by way of sharply contrasting façades but related masses.

Manhattan Park, which is also known as 546-558 Manhattan Avenue, has 14 apartments and a much more complex and handsome façade treatment that includes wood panels.

Its frontage on Driggs is vertically divided into four parts. One has the reddish-brown wood panels which extends across the second floor of the center section that consists of balconies with glass railings. The third, narrow, recessed, windowless section extends above the other sections.
