An industrial rental with an artistic vibe reflects the culturally rich Brooklyn neighborhood of Bushwick.
The Bogart Lofts in Bushwick, Brooklyn, presents chic rentals in a former beer factory. The industrial aesthetic of this newly renovated three-story building, which is owned by Sugar Hill Capital Partners and was designed by its in-house design team New Amsterdam Design Associates, appeals to millennials and other young professionals interested in a bustling neighborhood filled with artistic, cultural and culinary offerings. Using a boutique approach, the prewar building offers hotel amenities and sleek, light-filled apartments, just steps from the Morgan Avenue subway station.
Celebrated Brooklyn street artist Timothy Curtis did all the hand-painted signage in the building. He painted six-foot-high numbers on each floor = that mimic the typography that would have been seen in the early 1900s era of the building, and he also created a gigantic public mural of a happy face outside.
Sweatshop Studios in Brooklyn created all the branding and metal signage throughout the building, another indication that Bogart Lofts isn’t your average rental property. The emphasis on creative design also extends to the lobby.
Since Bogart Lofts is geared toward younger professionals and students, layouts offer up to four bedrooms to accommodate several roommates. The apartments have industrial-inspired kitchens with stainless steel lower cabinets, butcher block countertops, subway tile backsplashes and reclaimed wood shelving. Baths have industrial wall-hung sinks that are great for working artists, and factory-style windows that are just enormous.
The lively neighborhood is home to Roberta’s, a famous pizza spot, FARO which received a Michelin star, and plenty of other well-known restaurants.
