Installation of the brick facade is wrapping up at Monadnock Development's micro unit apartment building at 335 East 27th Street, also known as Carmel Place. The monochromatic facade is composed of grey brick in a gradient of four tones, from dark grey at the tallest northern bay to light grey of the shortest southern bay. Now that brick installation is complete, the scaffolding that has shrouded the project since the stacking completed has started to come down, revealing the facade.
Designed by nARCHITECTS, the project is the first micro units apartment building in New York and consists of 55 studio apartments for both market rate and affordable tenants. Each apartment is one module, offering 260 to 360 square feet of space. All modules were fabricated at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Completion of the project is slated for sometime this year.
