Have You Seen This Crazy New Space Tank Building in Bushwick?

The Wyckoff Exchange

There’s a new something at 22 Wyckoff Avenue—the Bushwick block bounded by Northeast Kingdom and the Wyckoff Starr—or, rather, two old warehouses converted and transformed so dramatically that they’re unrecognizable. Manhattan-based firm Andre Kikosi Architect turned the space formerly occupied by Rong Cheng U.S.A. Trading Inc. into the dramatic steel-fronted fortress above, The Wyckoff Exchange.

Once it’s fully operational—construction was finished late last year, but tenants aren’t up and running just yet—the Exchange (seen at nighttime below) will house a wine shop, an organic food store and a bar, music venue and internet radio station dubbed Radio Bushwick behind its LED-backlit facade of Corten steel. In a few years it will also house Brooklyn’s first time travel station.
