Development Notebook: Another Radusky Rises on Fourth Avenue

December 12th, 2008 · 3 Comments

We’ve already had a spiritual Henry Radusky building today. Now, we’ve got a 12-story monster rising at 574 Fourth Avenue, which is right on top of the Prospect Expressway. Yes, it’s a Radusky and, yes, car fans, some of these apartments are going to offer exceptionally dramatic views of both the insane traffic on Fourth Avenue and the even more entertaining stuff on the Prospect Expressway. This thing will 80 units and a huge proportion are going to be nirvana for automotive fanatics. Perhaps they’ll name it the Prospexy. We look foward to BIG things from this baby. Sadly, no renderings since it’s a Bricolage Design work but experience tells us two things: (a). an overabundance of bricks and (b). a paucity of windows. The latter, in this case, may be a good thing indeed. We already know that some marketing genius is going to pass this off as “prime Park Slope” when the time comes.

    I predict… incredibly ugly and superfluous balconies

    So much for the VUE.
    Radusky’s (along with his vulture Bro’s -Katan and Katz) other piece of crap. Right up the block on 16th.
    They sold those with a promise of never to be disturbed views. Now they can look done the block at another brick wall.
    When they aren’t watching the water pour into there apartments.
