470 Manhattan Avenue
Set on an angular plot in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, In-Site incorporated the concept of intersection and juncture throughout the design for the multi-family rental property. The contemporary pallet in the public spaces includes warm wood accents, saturated teal and green tones and a sophisticated neutral pallet of black, white and taupe. Durable and easily maintained finishes are used throughout.
The double height lobby features an angular walnut paneled wall. A 2 way mirror concealed in a secondary feature wall allows visitors to be visible by the building manager. The angled theme continues into the Tenant Lounge with unique lighted shelving, with comfortable contract-grade seating and billiards table providing recreation. A business center, fitness center, roof top terrace with grills round out the amenities that are provided for the tenant’s use.
The prototypical unit design includes top of the line appliances and plumbing fixtures to create apartments ready to lead to full occupancy.
In April 2020, the site was having its final finishes applied and then would be ready for furniture. However, with the pandemic ranging nationwide, most furniture factories were closed and local furniture delivery companies were not making deliveries. Only 2 weeks away from shipping, our furniture orders were being held at the factories. Other furnishings which were locally warehoused could not be delivered. Our work-around was to rent furniture for 6 weeks until delivery restrictions lessened and use a moving company (also an “essential” business) thereby allowing the client to begin showing the building to prospective tenants closer to their original schedule.
