Happy Halloween from ESKW/A!
We’re really getting into the gory spirit this year.
The office fridge is fully stocked with spooky delicacies (see left), and we’re planning a Great Pumpkin carving and pumpkin ale tasting for this afternoon.
Afterwards will be a scary silent film streaming, for which we’ll sample a few different early cinema classics such as Nosferatu (1922), Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1920), and The Golem (1915).
Check back next week to see the fruits of our labor, or better yet, stop in and give us a hand – or just a couple of fingers.
‘Tis the season for breaking ground! Two weeks ago we lauded the official beginning of 233 Landing Road. Last week, both 1561 Walton Avenue and 1066-1070 Myrtle Avenue celebrated their commencements.
1561 Walton Avenue is a 60-unit affordable housing project in the Mt. Eden neighborhood of the Bronx for Settlement Housing Fund, a long-time client of ESKW/A. Architects Kerry Zucker and Daughtry Carstarphen attended the ground breaking last Monday, which was covered in detail here: $20 Million Affordable Housing Development in the Bronx.

1066-1070 Myrtle is a supportive housing project in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The 6-story, 32,000SF building developed by the Institute of Community Living (ICL) will provide housing for individuals with mental health issues, including young adults transferring out of the foster care system. Architects Fialka Semenuik and Annie Kountz were in attendance on Thursday, with Fialka pitching in a hand with the ceremonial first shovel dig.
