The re-urbanization initiative of Livonia Avenue seeks to revive a formerly bustling Brooklyn neighborhood located alongside an integral aboveground train station. Acting as a catalyst for revival, four sites of infill type mixed-use buildings provide different experiences to pedestrians, residents, and train commuters.   Within each site, residents inhabit a range of apartment sizes. Located at street level are storefronts, recessed at angles that recall traditional display bay windows and create inviting facades. Atop each site, green roofs provide a park-like setting with terraces and sitting areas while rooftop gardens allow each apartment the opportunity to plant vegetables, herbs, and flowers.
