Denizen Bushwick's numbers are impressive: 1.2 million square feet, 911 apartments (20% affordable), 100,000 square feet of outdoor space (courtyards and rooftops), an 18,000-sf public park between the project's two halves, and 15 mega-murals. The last line corridors that face onto the courtyards — adding color to the outdoor spaces, enlivening movement to and from the apartments, and creating interesting vistas across the courtyards.
