HWKN Architecture is a Lower Manhattan-based design firm who have conceptualized and built an array of forward-thinking projects locally and abroad. The firm believes in making iconic structures through shared experience, physical expression, human connectivity and sustainable design

So far, HWKN’s ground up projects include 25 Kent Avenue, Williamsburg’s largest ground-up commercial development in recent history and 378 Broome Street, a boutique condominium building in Nolita with full floor residences. On the drawing, the firm has two major projects planned in Brooklyn: Bushwick Generator, a sizeable start-up hub and 245 Saint Johns Place, a proposed condo near Grand Army Plaza.

245 Saint Johns Place was home to a M&T Bank until 2018; while demolition permits were filed in 2019, no construction has taken place since. However, it would be inaccurate to say no work has been done; architecture firm HWKN has been busy designing a new, white-brick building to make the most of the prominent Park Slope site.

Park Slope’s restrictive zoning presented several challenges, but creative massing helped them work with that. Moreover, the site owner (listed as Josef Goodman's Haussmann Development) owns air rights in addition to the land. As such, HWKN was able to create a massive cantilever that would look out on views of the Downtown Brooklyn and Manhattan skylines.

The cantilever will house a Sky Lounge and two apartments with operable floor-to-ceiling curtain walls that can turn the living rooms into outdoor terraces. The remaining 26 units will have open layouts and the oversized, angled windows that set the building apart in the local streetscape. Details are limited on amenities apart from the Sky Lounge, but residents will benefit from a Park Slope address near Grand Army Plaza, Vanderbilt Avenue dining, and transportation options like the B/Q and 2/3 trains.

This Park Slope condo represents their first foray into Brooklyn residential and comes at a time when Park Slope condo prices remain high ($1,324 per square foot, as per CityRealty data).

Meanwhile, 378 Broome Street represents HWKN’s first foray into Manhattan luxury condos. The seven-story building presents a modern take on the local context with sandstone-colored brick and oversized windows. The four floor-through and duplex apartments also nod to history with proportions and open-plan layouts like old Soho lofts, but come with modern, luxurious perks like private keyed elevator access, high-end appliances and finishes in the kitchens, spa-like baths, in-unit washer/dryers, video intercoms, and private balconies. A floor-through unit is listed for $3,300,000, and a duplex is available for $5,995,000.
378 Broome Street is topped with a common landscaped roof terrace, but its greatest amenity may be its downtown location. Its address between Mulberry and Mott Streets puts it near some of the city’s best restaurants and cafes. Soho shopping and galleries are located to the west; Lower East Side dining and nightlife to the east; and transportation options include the 6, J/Z, and B/D trains.
