Over the next decade, Brooklyn’s Atlantic Avenue will likely continue its transformation from high-speed deathtrap to high-density residential boulevard. With more than a dozen projects already taking shape near its western extents, such as the 16-tower Pacific Park project, Cobble Hill’s LICH redevelopment, and a pair of towers at Brooklyn Bridge Park, it’s not difficult to imagine infill developments progressing eastward, rising from the acres of underutilized land along the ten-mile artery. And in East New York, the City Council just approved a rezoning of the neighborhood that allows for 10- to 14-story apartment blocks to rise along Atlantic Avenue.

In Bedford-Stuyvesant, in between the two much-discussed areas, StudiosC Architects has crafted an eight-story apartment block at 1875 Atlantic Avenue, which will contain 118 rental units.

Situated at the northwest corner of Atlantic Avenue and Columbus Place, the 20,000-square-foot lot was sold in an all-cash transaction for $7,300,000 last year to Brooklyn-based Velocity Framers. Approved permits filed last February detail a seven-story building amassing to nearly 80,000 square feet of gross floor area. There will be 118 rental apartments with amenities including a lounge, bike room, laundry room, and on-site parking for 59 cars.

StudiosC sought to minimize the scale of the building with alternating facades of charcoal grey brick punctuated by casement-style windows and balconies. A juxtaposing light-colored facade of double-beveled spandrel areas  anchors the corner and repeats in three narrower instances along Columbus Avenue, echoing the scale of the adjacent walk-ups.

The building’s lobby is positioned at the corner and is sheathed in warm wood, darkened steel, and a stone floor whose pattern replicates the beveled exterior.
