Hello Albermarle’s ‘Avant-Garde-on-a-Budget’ Condos Take Flight in Flatbush

July 6, 2016

Hello Living is extending their Bauhaus-inspired magic deeper into Brooklyn with their latest project Hello Albermarle. It rises from a former parking lot located near the renewed Loew’s Kings Theatre and another upcoming high-rise development by the firm Hello Nostrand. Now having ascended four floors out of its concrete pit, the 44-unit condominium tower will ultimately tower 12 stories and 140 feet over its cozy Flatbush community.

Zambrano Architectural Design penned the vertical stack of floor-through, one- and two-bedroom residences. The south-facing exterior is enlivened by sections of balcony walls that angle inwards and outwards. The building is setback nearly 30 feet from the street, providing a small driveway at its front and allowing the tower to stack the useable floor area upwards to capture sweeping views of Prospect Park, Brooklyn, and the Manhattan skyline. Like many mid-block, larger-than-their-context developments, the lot line elevations are mostly blank, presenting an austere face to its neighborhood.

According to a brochure from 2014, Hello Living estimates the units will command between $600-$800 per square foot and rent for over $40 per square foot. Building amenities will include a fitness center, private terraces, private-keyed elevators and a 15-year tax abatement. The Eli Karp-led firm has built a cluster of Hellos in Prospect Heights and Crown Heights and have carried their trademark avant-garde-on-a-budget aesthetic throughout, articulating exteriors with private outdoor spaces and circulation corridors and staircases.
