Renderings released this week show off a new full-block residential development coming to Williamsburg. Designed by architecture firm ODA, the project includes the Lorimer House, a 270-unit rental, and Copper Lofts, a “boutique collection” of 66 residences, connected by an elevated bridge, creating the illusion of one cohesive development. Taking advantage of their corner location in Broadway Triangle, the eight-story buildings feature a curving facade marked with alternating balconies and recessed terraces. Construction is expected to wrap up this spring.

The eight-story mixed-use development features a striking brick facade, inspired by the architecture found throughout the former industrial neighborhood. The facade is layered with an articulated slab edge while horizontal metal panels and vertical metal piers divide the brick, making way for planters positioned along the length of the building.

Featuring interior design by Durukan Design, the residences feature floor-to-ceiling windows that are slightly angled to the south to maximize natural light throughout the day, and high-performance glass to reduce noise from above-ground adjacent subway.

The project is the third collaboration between ODA and Durukan on a residential development.

The development will offer over 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities space. Indoor amenities feature several curated indoor spaces on the lower levels, a dog park, and an 8th-floor amenity lounge that connects to a circular landscaped and furnished roof deck spanning the length of the building.

One of the most defining architectural features is a three-story corridor on the east-facing side that will serve as a pathway through the building and into the interior courtyard, Yimby notes.

The property also features three interior courtyards designed by ODA to point slightly southward, capturing more sunlight during the day and opening up to the city skyline. A small outdoor space on the third floor acts as a private “pocket space” for residents.

Residents will have direct access to the subway, with the M and J lines accessible just a few feet away at the Lorimer Street station. The G train is also accessible at nearby Broadway station.

Leasing recently launched for the rentals at Lormier House, with units priced from $3,500. Construction is slated for completion this spring.
