Construction is underway on 320 and 360 Wythe Avenue, two heavy timber buildings in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. Designed by Flank, a design and development firm, the two buildings are the first brick and beam structures to be built in New York City in nearly a century.
Both buildings are built with a heavy timber structure on a concrete foundation, with 320 Wythe's three-story timber structure completed in a matter of weeks. In the coming weeks, the brick facade will be installed, which is required to be independently supported off a secondary structure.
Foundation work is currently underway on the larger four-story structure of 360 Wythe, which will offer retail, office, and residential square footage.
Architect/Developer: Flank; Program: Office, Retail, Residential (360 Wythe only); Location: Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY; Completion: 2018.
