Located on a prominent corner of Prospect Park in Brooklyn and along Grand Army Plaza, the building affords its residents optimal access to Brooklyn’s burgeoning cultural renaissance while being conveniently located within a short commute to Manhattan. Nearby attractions and historic sites include the Brooklyn Public Library and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. The design is intended to enhance the urban space of Grand Army Plaza while establishing new relationships to the nearby thoroughfares and the historic urban fabric.
The base of the building respects the existing scale and diversity of the immediate context by filling out the city block, while the tower lends landmark stature to the building within the broader urban setting. The condominium contains a mixture of apartments, which ranging in size from 1,050-square-foot one-bedroom apartments to 2,050-square-foot three-bedroom apartments to duplex penthouse apartments. Nearly all apartments have balconies, each distinguished by spectacular views. There are eight private rooftop gardens, with one garden featuring park views available to all tenants.
The building’s arresting form—a monumental sculpture in glass—promotes maximum transparency while reflecting the variety of the surrounding context. Natural sunlight animates this building, lending vitality to the surrounding streetscape, landscape, and community.
