Leonard Street

Project Manager/Designer: Robert M. Scarano jr.

Completion Date: June 2005

Location: Williamsburg

Along with comprehensive re-zoning efforts, McCarren Park's redevelopment and revitalization has spawned the interest of the local development community.

One example for this trend in the building at 415 Leonard Street. Built as a phased development, it will be one of the first structures erected under this new urban plan. Its modest seven story height emphasizes its presence through extensive finishes: two colors of masonry, metal panels and large windows, which give the project its distinctive character. Defining elements such as folded metal roofs break down the length of the facade and accentuate the individual apartments beneath them.

Balcony projections and tall window elements contribute to the overall design motif, while cut stone bands and a contrasting brick help ground the structure to the prominent corner on which it sits.

Ample below and on grade parking are just the beginning of the amenities which include state of the art appliances, Italian designed cabinetry, imported tiles and specialty hardwood flooring. A doorman, fitness center, meeting room and individual cellar storage spaces complete the hi-end character of this project.
