The condofication of Williamsburg, Brooklyn is a topic about which the pros and cons have been debated for years at this point. So instead of arguing about it, let's just applaud one such project that has chosen a tasteful reference to historical neighborhood architecture rather than erecting a faceless glass tower.
174 Jackson Street in Williamsburg was built by Grand Street Development (of the famous Mason Fisk conversion a few years back) as modern living spaces with many references to the loft buildings that can be found nearby. The brick facade is an elegant choice that carries through to some interior walls with design by the acclaimed Meshberg Group. All of the finishes have a time-worn elegance that suits the desired character of the building, but they still have a warm modern edge that will work with many styles of decor.
