between Lincoln Place & Eastern Parkway View Full Building Profile

Carter Horsley
Review of 805 Washington Avenue by Carter Horsley

This 9-story building at 805 Washington Avenue between Eastern Parkway and Lincoln Place in the Prospect Heights section of Brooklyn is planned for completion in 2020 and will have 37 condominium apartments. 

It is one block to north of the Brooklyn Museum. 

Happy Living Development is the builder. 

Aldo Andreoli is the architect. 

The building has replaced a supermarket building and when it completed it will have a supermarket retail tenant.

Bottom Line

With some stepped corners, this grey-colored building sports a light-colored mid-section that enlivens its presence one block away from the Brooklyn Museum of Art.

Description

The building has a light-colored mid-section from the second to the sixth floors with a grey-colored stepped section from the fourth floor downward at its east end and the seventh to the ninth floor upwards at its west end.  The top three floors are gray as is the 9-story, setback wing. 

The fenestration consists mainly of indented three- and four-tall-windows groups. 

The building has a marquee entrance. 

Amenities

The building has a roof deck, a children's playroom, a bicycle room and a garage.
