Columbia Hicks Apartments is one of six new buildings designed by GF55 in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighborhood. It is the rezoning of two city blocks bounded by Baltic, Congress, Hicks, and Columbia Streets. Columbia Hicks Apartments is a 94 unit building of 107,000 sq ft designed in a traditional historic manner. The building takes its cues from Cobble Hill townhouses with large cornices, window pediments and rusticated base stone. This project, along with GF55 designed Columbia Commons, was awarded the Jack Kemp Models of Excellence Award from the Urban Land Institute in 2011.
