Construction of 260 Gold Street completes construction in downtown Brooklyn
Construction is now fully completed at 260 Gold Street, a 13-story residential building in downtown Brooklyn. Designed by J Frankl Architects and developed by Bruman Realty, which recently received a $ 145 million refinancing from Square Mile Capital Management, the nearly 260,000 square foot structure offers 287 rental apartments and features a four-story atrium. with an indoor waterfall. The property is bounded by Gold Street to the east, Tillary Street to the south and Duffield Street to the west.
Since our last construction update in July 2020, all remaining work has been completed. The most notable architectural element is the configuration of the upper levels, which feature numerous rectangular cantilevered volumes clad in glass and brick that appear to float on the more orthodox base of the structure. The interstitial spaces create pockets for the terraces lined with glass railings, while each of these caissons is also topped with an outdoor space.
The south-east and south-west corners of the building are covered with floor-to-ceiling glass on the third through ninth floors.
The following photographs highlight the overhangs and voids of the upper levels.
Numerous balconies extend from the fenestration between the walls of uniform brick masonry.
The lower surfaces of the cantilever volumes present a mirror treatment.

Meanwhile, the west elevation features a simpler design with a clean white finish.
