GothamWest has another approved project in the works that they’re planning to begin construction on this spring. The Scott Mahaffey designed building at 312 Pacific Ave in Bergen-Layfatte will contain 14 residential units above ground floor commercial space.
The amount of detail that goes into these designs is always fascinating. As Scott Mahaffey explains,
“The apartments are all two bedrooms, with large windows in projecting bays that will provide lots of daylight into the units. The bays are placed to help the building fit the smaller-scale rhythm of it’s neighbors. Attention is paid to the materials, window size and placement to relate the street elevation to the historic fabric in this up and coming neighborhood.”
Currently, 312 Pacific is a vacant lot. This new project with fill in the vacancy and restore the continuity of the streetscape.
Although not a huge project, it’s a sign of the continued interest in Bergen-Layfayette as development spreads out from downtown. With the Baker Building finishing up construction, the Grind Shop‘s recent opening and now new infill residential projects, Pacific Ave is shaping up to become a hot corridor.
