Denizen Bushwick is a 1,100,000 SF residential complex. Once home to the Rheingold Brewery, the site now consists of two nine-story buildings over two shared basement levels, spanning two city blocks. The twin buildings encompass 911 units, 183 deemed affordable. The structures are designed with sloping rooflines, protruding balconies, various setbacks and stepped volumes arranged around two interior courtyards. Floor-to-ceiling windows are framed in a repeating pattern of yellow, orange and red, paying homage to the murals and street art found throughout Bushwick. This building is topped with a 60,000 SF gardened roof offering views of Manhattan, a walking path, play area, lounges and a 100-foot steel skybridge.
