Community, a connection to the outdoors and shared amenities geared towards young families are at the heart of this 32-unit, 80,000 square foot building located in the Prospect Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn. Duplex town homes with terraces and private entries align the street, defined by an angled masonry façade that both bring the building’s scale into accord with the surrounding townhouses and makes reference to the site’s history of being contiguous to the old Flatbush Highway Native American trading route, prior to the implementation of the current city grid in the 1850’s.
The building’s entrance features a children’s playroom above the lobby and a two story community room framing views of a 4,000 square foot shared garden. Three and four bedroom units complete the ground floor, each with ample landscaped yards. Units range from 860 SF one bedrooms to 2,500 SF four bedrooms. Rounding out the buildings amenities, the cellar accommodates parking for all units, a gym, storage and a bike room.
All units feature an associated outdoor space in the form of a terrace or balcony, with each of the five penthouse units including 1,000 SF to 1,500 SF of landscaped roof or terrace space.
