Smile NEW YORK | 1580 Nostrand Avenue | 241 FT | 23 FLOORS

Project: 1580 Nostrand Avenue

The application called for a 23-story, 241-foot-tall building, taking up most of the block bounded by Nostrand Avenue, Albemarle Road, East 29th Street, and Tilden Avenue, with frontage on the first three streets.

The design features a taper as the tower reaches skyward (going from up to a dozen apartments on the fourth floor to just three on the 23rd), somewhat minimizing the impact of the building’s height. The tower will be about as tall as 626 Flatbush Avenue, Hudson’s project on the other side of Flatbush, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, which has caused much consternation (although the architecture for 1580 Nostrand is arguably more attractive than the PTAC-pocked 626 Flatbush, and definitely more interesting).

The building is planned to have 153 apartments, spread over 129,000 square feet of space. The average unit size of 840 square feet would normally be indicative of rentals, but condos are Hello Living’s bread and butter. With little common area that doesn’t count towards zoning, it’s possible the building will have private keyed elevators, saving on construction costs.
