    Meet the New Bushwick, Different Than the Old One

    So the big project on Wyckoff Avenue has started and Bushwick's most sensitive blogger says he likey:

    Whata city. No worries, we’re about to get a piece of sweet new architecture care of the talented Andre Kikoski, who has designed projects as diverse as the Yahoo! store at Rockefeller Center and the Z Hotel in Long Island City, not to mention loft interiors and furniture. Living green walls and lots of glass will grace the gap between Wyckoff-Starr coffee shop and Northeast Kingdom, and the facade will incorporate a “super cool lighting scheme” visible at night. Two of the storefronts will be taken up by a grocery from Williamsburg (that I am told by everyone has fantastic prepared sandwiches) and a wine shop. The other two, including a double-height hangar-like space, are still available. Construction is expected to be finished in “early 2009.”
    Or, maybe he don't likey. Hard to say. Anyway, check out the rendering.
