Kings Highway

Situated at an energetic intersection of Kings Highway, this 68,000 square feet area of commercial development will be an anchor in the evolving neighborhood of Gravesend, Brooklyn when completed. To take advantage of the site’s visibility from the elevated subway lines, the design addresses the two main programs of commercial office space and retail space with dynamically intersecting volumes. The play between the programs is further expressed through use of glazing on the lower retail floors versus a more solid precast concrete panel/ masonry construction on the upper office floors. The 5-story new construction takes cues from the neighboring building heights while exploring facade patterns to weave into the local existing fabric.
