This development consists of a multifamily residential development providing 642 new homes proposed by Tessler Development for the Jefferson Park neighborhood. The project is planned for the full city block bounded by Alcott Street on the east, West 26th Avenue on the south, Bryant Street on the west, and West 27th Avenue on the north. The building is 15 stories divided into 2 buildings. 26th and Alcott totals a grossfloor area of 850,000 sq. ft. The architect lead designer was OZ Architecture. The firm gave the project a modern architectural tone inspired by and recalling the clean lines and crisp forms of Mondrian paintings. According to a recent article by BusinessDen, about two-thirds of the project’s 642 homes will be for-sale condominiums, with the remaining one-third as rental apartments. The project would consist of a four-story parking podium containing 593 parking spaces wrapped on all sides by apartments. A tower containing the remaining apartments and all of the condominiums would rise from the podium to reach 15 stories. Two outdoor amenity areas with swimming pools would sit at the base of the tower on top of the podium. The tower will be positioned mostly along the Alcott side of the block to put the densest part of the project away from the lower-scale homes across Bryant Street.
