Flushing Avenue, Brooklyn,NYC
This small 7,000sf corner lot was designed to maximize the efficiency. The new buidling consists of 6 story and contains 4 duplex units. Located in an R7A zoning district with a C2-4 commercial overlay. The corner site location allowed for a very efficient layout, as there was more opportunity to place required windows along the outer 'street' perimeter of the lot. The contextual Quality Housing regulations which are mandatory in R7A districts, produced a high lot coverage, which allowed for a design blending with existing buildings in this established neighborhood.
