New details, looks at Bushwick's glass factory-turned-swank rentals

Development firm ASH NYC is leading this transformation of the 19th century glass factory

The conversion of a 19th century glass factory in Bushwick into rentals is well underway, and the developer behind the project ASH NYC, has unveiled a teaser site for the project, now known as Glassworks Bushwick.

The project derives its name from the Dannenhoffer Opalescent Glassworks factory that was founded here in 1888. ASH NYC is incorporating the original factory into the development, and has built two new structures on either side of the factory to create the overall rental project, located at 336 Himrod Street.

The main factory building served various industrial purposes until it was acquired by ASH NYC a few years ago. They announced their development plans in 2014, and now leasing on the rental’s 63 apartments is set to get underway in January.

The development will feature a mix of studios, one, two, and three-bedrooms, including penthouses. Pricing on the studios hasn’t yet been unveiled, but one-bedrooms will start from $2,500, two-bedrooms from $3,100, and three-bedrooms from $3,800.

Apartments here will come with white oak flooring, stainless steel appliances, light fixtures designed by ASH NYC, and many of the apartments here will have some form of outdoor space.

Amenities future residents can look forward to include a fitness room, indoor bike parking, a barbecue area, on-site laundry, garage parking, and a roof deck and yard designed by Brooklyn Grange. EXR is handling sales and marketing on the development, and the first group of residents will start moving in shortly after the leasing launch.
