The reinforced concrete superstructure of 18 Sixth Avenue, a 49-story residential skyscraper, has begun ascending in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed in a joint venture between The Brodsky Organization and Greenland Forest City Partners, the 500-plus-foot-tall building will yield 858 rental units, of which 258 will be dedicated to affordable housing. The project will be the tallest structure in the 22-acre Pacific Park master plan.
