Pilings and Excavation Begin at 37 Sixth Avenue in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn

The updated rendering for 37 Sixth Avenue. Designed by Marvel Architects

Three piling machines and two excavators have been set up at 37 Sixth Avenue in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. The upcoming 343,788-square-foot, mixed-use building will rise 26 stories and bring 323 rental units to the neighborhood. The property sits at the corner of Dean Street and Sixth Avenue and is directly to the east of Barclays Center. Marvel Architects is the designer and the Brodsky Organization is the developer. An updated rendering was also posted on the construction fence. The project is alternately addressed 495 Dean Street and 664 Pacific Street.

The new design includes subtle tweaks to the elevations above the podium floors. The window arrangements are more neatly organized and aligned than in the first iteration from three years ago. The outside colors of the building have also been slightly adjusted to distinguish and divide each section of the structure’s massing as multiple indented and protruding volumes. There will be a 616-seat, 69,858-square-foot public middle school that will span the first five floors and two below-grade levels. Amenities will include a gym, indoor and outdoor residential lounges, and a children’s playroom.

This structure is one of multiple buildings in the Pacific Park mega-development.

A formal completion date for 37 Sixth Avenue has not yet been announced.
