DRPILLA is the structural engineer for this six-story, 62,000-square-foot residential housing project known as Beverly’s Place in Brooklyn, NY. The structure was recently topped out and upon final construction will offer 72-units of affordable housing to formerly homeless individuals and low-income residents. The existing 19,777-square-foot site was once occupied by three single-story warehouses which were demolished to make way for the new construction. A key feature of the building is the glass tower which spans the height of the building. A concrete canopy supported by a single 16-inch diameter steel column makes a bold entrance statement. Community Counseling and Mediation is the developer, with OCV Architects behind the design. Occupancy can be expected by the end of the year.
