The Brooklyn skyline prepares to add another tower to its rapidly-growing skyscraper ranks. Developer Lonicera Partners has unveiled renderings for a 23-story high-rise at 308 Livingston Street, slated to hold 160 luxury rentals. The building will rise at the southern fringe of Downtown Brooklyn, where bustling shopping and street life sits at the threshold of quaint, tree-lined Boerum Hill.

Fogarty Finger Architects drew inspiration from old and new context alike. The building form follows the streetwall, setback line, and general height of 33 Bond Street, a 25-story, 714-unit rental completed next door in 2017. The gridded facade channels an austere modernist aesthetic. In turn, dark charcoal brick and bronze window trim respond to the material palette of surrounding pre-war buildings, while horizontal facade bands visually balance the vertical mass.

 

Traditional materials feature throughout the interior as well, where one- to two-bedroom units will be decked out with wood finishes, stone-clad bathrooms, and stainless steel appliances in kitchens. Floor-to-ceiling windows will open onto vistas of the Brooklyn and Manhattan skylines to the north and sweeping panoramas to the south, where blocks of pre-war townhouses stretch toward the harbor.

 

Tenants will have access to amenities such as lounges, a co-working area, a private dining room, and a so-called “speakeasy bar.” The roof deck will offer grilling stations that will make for spectacular Independence Day parties if Macy’s maintains its display by the Brooklyn Bridge, as it did this year.

Ground-floor retail will contribute to Livingston Street’s lively shopping district, which has served the community for over a century. Regrettably, the new project required demolition of two dazzling, turn-of-the-century buildings adorned in sculpted, colorful terra cotta. Unfortunately for developers and the community alike, local zoning imposes strict height caps that prevent builders and architects from applying flexible design options, such as a taller yet narrower building sharing the lot with historic neighbors. In the case of 308 Livingston, the redeeming factor is the high quality of the proposed design, which will enliven the streetscape and the skyline upon its 2021 completion.
