VIDEO: Drone footage shows construction of ODA’s massive Rheingold Brewery site
Slated to be the largest influx of housing created in Bushwick ever, ODA Architect’s two projects on the old Rheingold Brewery site continue to progress. Rabsky Group’s 10 Montieth Street, a nearly 400,000-square-foot, seven-story building with 392 units, just topped out. And All Year Management’s impressive development, totaling one million square feet, at 123 Melrose Street is currently being clad. Overall, the two projects will span three full city blocks.

The drone footage shows just how big ODA’s projects will be when completed. All Year’s 123 Melrose Street development will include 800 to 900 units with 20 percent of them affordable. The group plans to add courtyard and landscaped areas to the large building, as well as a plaza with coffee shops, art galleries, recreational facilities and much more. Supporting Bushwick artists, 123 Melrose will commission local artwork to decorate its walls.

Plus, the amenities at the site are impressive. There will be a 60,000-square foot roof that will focus on relaxation and fitness, as well as an urban farm that will allow residents to harvest fresh produce. In the center of 123 Melrose, a 17,850-square foot park will sit, aimed at creating a community center open to the public.
