Annex to historic Greenpoint bank transformed into residences
Bank described as a 'temple' and a 'fortress'
Sales have been launched for a historic conversion of an annex to a historic Greenpoint bank into condos.
The renovated building, developed by Slate Property Group, shows off more of the historic, domed bank itself, according to observers.
The historic Greenpoint Savings Bank building itself was designed by New York architect team Helmle & Huberty in 1906. Steeped in neoclassical style and tradition, the bank has been described as both a “temple” and a “fortress” in one of Brooklyn’s most iconic neighborhoods.
The annex, now known as 1080 Lorimer after its address, has been restored into 29 condo units, with the project’s redesign led by architecture firm PKSB. This includes a complete facade replacement utilizing simple materials to create a modern structure honoring the original building’s neoclassical features.
