37 Sixth Avenue
Back in September, filings were submitted for the planned 26-story, 323-unit mixed-use building at 37 Sixth Avenue/495 Dean Street/664 Pacific Street, in Prospect Heights, and now DNAinfo has the project’s reveal. A 616-seat, 69,858 square-foot public school will span seven floors within the building: two below-grade levels and the first five floors. The project is a part of the Pacific Park mega-development, and a team comprised of Greenland Group and Forest City Ratner is developing; Marvel Architects is designing. Demolition is currently underway on three townhouses fronting Dean Street.
Back in June, YIMBY brought you news of construction beginning on Greenland Forest City Partners’ 23-story and 303-unit mixed-use building at 38 Sixth Avenue, in Prospect Heights, which marked their fourth building to break ground at the Pacific Park redevelopment. Now, applications have been filed for a building right across the street at 37 Sixth Avenue/495 Dean Street, which will also house a public school. Applications call for a 26-story structure totaling 342,788 square feet. The school will measure 69,858 square feet from the sub-cellar through the sixth floors, and the building’s upper portion, starting on the sixth floor, will hold 323 apartments, averaging 848 square feet apiece.
