Construction on One Boerum Place in Downtown Brooklyn is getting close to topping out. The 21-story mixed-use condominium building is rising from a narrow triangular-shaped parcel bound by Boerum Place, Red Hook Lane, and Fulton Street. The project is designed by SLCE Architects and is being developed by Avery Hall Investments, Allegra Holdings, and Aria Development Group, which acquired a $165 million construction loan from Jutland Finance. The total cost is expected to be around $250 million.
Photos by architectural photographer Tectonic show the progress of the rising superstructure, which recently surpassed the final southern setback. A slight cantilevering section on the eastern profile can be spotted in the first photo. Topping out should likely occur within the next several weeks with less than five floors left to build.
The first portion of the curtain wall is being installed on the lower floors of the main western elevation and the backside facing east. Crews are using large cinder blocks to form the edges of each window frame. This area of the envelope has smaller and narrower windows than the rest of the exterior. There is also some scaffolding and draped plastic sheets hanging off the southern edge of the lower stories, most likely to protect construction crews working on the perimeter through the winter months.
One Boerum Place will yield nearly 22,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 183,000 square feet of residential area spread across 122 units. Homes will be available in one-, two-, and three-bedroom configurations. Amenities include a two-story fitness center, swimming pool, sauna, an entertainment lounge, a children’s playroom, a 24/7 doorman and concierge service, a parking garage, a storage room, and a landscaped rooftop deck with an outdoor kitchen and seating.
One Boerum Place is expected to be completed sometime within the first quarter of 2021.
