The 23-story, 303-unit mixed-use building under development at 38 Sixth Avenue, at the corner of Dean Street in Prospect Heights, has topped out. Three months ago, the structure was merely two stories above street level. It now encompasses 341,595 square feet. It will host 8,700 square feet of retail space and medical offices on the ground floor, followed by 303 affordable residential units. All of the rental apartments will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. Amenities include a 73-car underground garage, space for a whopping 400 bikes, private residential storage space, a fitness center with a yoga room, a children’s playroom, and a terrace on the 16th floor. Greenland Forest City Partners, comprising of Greenland USA (the US branch of Shanghai-based Greenland Group) and Forest City Ratner Companies, is the developer. The duo are heading the 17-building Pacific Park mixed-use mega-development, of which 38 Sixth Avenue is a part. SHoP Architects is behind the design. Completion can probably be expected later this year or in early 2017.
38 Sixth Avenue
Last month, YIMBY revealed new renderings of the 23-story, 303-unit mixed-use building planned at 38 Sixth Avenue, in Prospect Heights, located within the 15-building Pacific Park mega-development. Curbed NY now has an update on the entire project, but more specifically photos revealing that this portion of Pacific Park is finally rising. The structure is currently two stories above street level. It will eventually encompass 341,595 square feet and will feature 8,700 square feet of retail space and medical offices on the ground floor. The rental apartments, averaging 957 square feet apiece, will all rent at below market-rates. There will be a mix of studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. A partnership between Forest City Ratner and Greenland USA is developing, and SHoP Architects is behind the design. Completion is expected in late 2017.
Work began last summer on Pacific Park’s second affordable tower at 38 Sixth Avenue. Now YIMBY has a slew of new facade and interior renderings for the building designed by SHoP Architects.
