78 Ten Eyck Street

Project Manager/Designer: Robert M. Scarano jr.

Completion Date: July 2007

Location: East Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Visit: Tower 78

This building lot is located on the corner of two prominent residential streets in an upcoming area on the Williamsburg border of Brooklyn. An L-shaped lot with one part on the public street and the other towards the private interior portion of the lot.

The building is four stories high with the first floor covering the entire lot to create a parking garage for the owners. The upper floors cover 80% of the lot and a private terrace is created rear of the second floor.

The building has a total of 14,000 gross square feet and there is a mix of different types of units including studios, one and two bedroom loft style apartments, each of them having double height living/dining areas.

The exterior appearance makes an emphasis on the street corner, by forming a "tower", which is separated from the rest of the buildings facade by a thin window strip.

The exterior is masonry with large openings of curtain wall type windows, exposing the loft-style interior to the outside. The upper portion of the building is capped by a mansard roof.

The color of the roof forest, green, is complementary to the brick red color of the masonry.
