A Distinctive Identity Inspired by its Environment

Rising nine stories with 86 condominium units, the 90,000 SF 43rd Avenue Condos, also known as the Dutch LIC, is located directly over a subway line tunnel. This became both a challenge and inspiration. The solution was to integrate a cantilever steel truss building support into the façade design that would showcase the base structural support and enable the pedestrian to experience it.

The design gives the development a distinctive identity that draws inspiration from and connects with its environment. The building emulates the industrial heritage of the neighborhood with a modern approach. The brick brings it back to the area’s manufacturing past while the exposed structural elements, glass and metal panel arrangement make it contemporary and contextual. The lobby features a hanging wood ceiling with pendant lights, large wall mural, metal wall panels, and a textured wall. The tenant lounge is adjacent to the lobby and carries through the material palette along with metal drapery. The ground floor has 17 residential parking spaces and a bike room for 45 bicycles. The 2nd floor has residential units, an outdoor terrace, and recreation space. Floors three through nine will have residences ranging from studios to 3 bedrooms. The rooftop has a public terrace with an entertainment area/bar and 2 private terraces.
