Boerum place

Project Manager/Designer: Robert M. Scarano jr.

Completion Date: January 2002

Location: Boerum Hill


Boerum Gardens is a new three-story and cellar light-gauge steel frame building, which includes 29 condominium apartments, private parking and public areas, all contained in 27,600 square feet. The development is located in the up and coming Boerum Hill neighborhood in Brooklyn. The site was a long vacant lot in a prominent corner location. This fact presented an opportunity to create a low-rise contextual building grouping, which attracted families and revived this previously blighted land. The combination of masonry, stucco and stone in concert distinguishes the site as an anchor building, which works with and enhances the adjacent existing neighborhood structures. Its modest scale and bulk utilize all floor area, as a benefit of the New York City quality housing program.
