This large, red-brick development in Downtown Brooklyn was built by Paul Tishman Inc., and Sol G. Atlas in 1950 as a rental complex and was converted to a co-operative in 1980. 

It has 7 mid-rise towers are staggered on the site and have a total of 1,023 apartments. 

The buildings are 17 stories tall and are located at 175, 195, 215, 225 and 235 Adams Street and 230 and 270 Jay Street. 

They are to the east of the Brooklyn Heights Historic District, south of DUMBO and west and north of Downtown Brooklyn.  It is parallel to the Brooklyn Bridge entrance.  The A and C share a subway station virtually on site and the 2, 3, 4, 5, F, N and R subway lines are within a few blocks. 

The complex is east of the Walt Whitman Park and is bounded by Tillary Street on the south, Jay Street on the east and High Street on the north. 

Mr. Tishman was a member of the family that founded Tishman Realty & Construction, one of the city's major developers.  He left to create his own company, Paul Tishman Inc., and he and his wife were also known for their extensive and famous collection of Tribal Art that they sold to the Walt Disney Company, which later gave it to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington. 

Mr. Atlas developed a 50-story office building and a 40-story office building known as New York Plaza near the Battery in Lower Manhattan with John P. McGrath.  He also developed the apartment building at 200 East End Avenue that was the city's first with air-conditioning and the "Miracle Mile" shopping center on Route 25 in Manhasset, Long Island. 

The complex was designed by Benjamin Braunstein and Alfred H. Ryder. Mr. Braunstein designed many garden apartment projects such as Glen Oaks Village in Bellerose, Mowbray Apartments in Kew Gardens and Linden Hill Apartments and Mitchell Gardens in Flushing, and Beach Hill Gardens in Douglaston, all in Queens.
