Carroll Gardens Luquer Street 'Monstrosity' Poking Up

Luquer Street

While architects like Robert Scarano (see below) seem to garner an inordinate amount of headlines both online and in print, other architects are making a significant impact on both the Brooklyn streetscape and skyline. One of them is Karl Fischer, whose work is almost everywhere one turns in Williamsburg, and can be found in South Brooklyn too. The building rising in the distance of this photo, for instance, is the Karl Fischer building at 100 Luquer Street on the far side of Carroll Gardens. This is the view from the F train as it goes from the Smith-9th Street Station to Carroll Street. We posted a ground-level view from Hamilton Avenue on Curbed last week. It is an 11-story building in a neighborhood of 2-4 story structures, so it will cut quite a profile when it reaches its full height.
