Exterior work is nearing completion on Plank Road, a 27-story residential building at 662 Pacific Street in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Formerly addressed as 37 Sixth Avenue, 495 Dean Street, and 664 Pacific Street, the 209,451-square-foot structure is designed by Marvel Architects and developed by The Brodsky Organization and will bring 312 rental units to the Pacific Park complex. The rectangular parcel is located between Dean and Pacific Streets.
Since our last update in February, work has wrapped up on the multi-story podium and the remainder of the windows on the tower have been installed.
The hand-laid brick masonry walls of the podium contrast with the main building and the lighter-toned bricks that surround the grid of square and rectangular windows. The reinforced concrete structure is topped with a relatively flat roof parapet, with mechanical equipment housed in a tall metal-framed perimeter of translucent screens. The only portion of the façade awaiting completion is where the elevator hoist remains attached.
Plank Road will yield a mix of studios and one- to two-bedroom rental units. Leasing is expected to begin sometime this summer, as indicated on the property’s website. There is also a 616-seat, 69,858-square-foot public middle school on the first five floors and two floors below street level.
Residential amenities include a private gym, indoor and outdoor lounges, and a children’s playroom. The nearest subways from the site are the 2, 3, 4, 5, N, Q, and R trains at the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center station, and the Long Island Railroad at Atlantic Terminal to the northwest by the intersection of Flatbush and Atlantic Avenues.
Plank Road is anticipated to be finished in the fourth quarter of 2021, as noted on the construction fence.
