A NOD TO THE PAST, AN EYE TO THE FUTURE
Inspired by the neighborhood’s artistic culture and industrial heritage, The Forge’s raw yet refined statuesque design embraces LIC’s vibrancy - past, present and future. Thoughtfully-conceived by the design firm FXFOWLE Architects, The Forge is a distinctive 38-story tower with an impressive double-height lobby accented by raw woods, blackened steel, metal screens and glass. And it’s accented by the image of a street art mural of a rooster salvaged from the Purves Street building site. Residents will walk into a space that feels like an artists’ co-op.
Experientially, The Forge is a village-in-a-building, complete with its own spacious outdoor park. The abundant play and lounge areas are brought to life with an outdoor pool, creating a private oasis of green and calm within the chaos of city living.
