BUSHWICK – Yet another massive new apartment building is coming to Bushwick, as renderings were revealed for 1601 Bushwick, a rental development from the Camber Property Group.

The $70.5 million project will create a 125,252 square foot building where a parking lot currently stands. Ultimately, it will add 122 units to the block, with 31 of those units (25%) available as affordable housing, YIMBY reported. Once the apartments are built on top of the existing parking lot, the building will have 46 parking spaces for residents.

The 9-story building will consist of red and gray brick, blending with existing neighborhood structures in color, at least. From the rendering, it appears rooftops will feature finished, outdoor spaces, and balconies will be available on some of the units. Two patterned accent structures will top the roof spaces of the building, as well.

The lot is located on Dekalb Avenue, near Wyckoff, and is about a block away from the Dekalb L train stop. A Key Foods is located across the street, and both P.S. 123 and Maria Hernandez Park are a couple short blocks away. Aufgang Architects, the firm behind the nearly-completed 810 Fulton Development in Clinton Hill are designing the building. The project is expected to be completed in 2022.
