The mid-block Addison at 225 Schermerhorn Street in Downtown Brooklyn is a two-building rental apartment complex that was erected in 2011. 

It was erected by Waterton Residential New York LLC and designed by H. Thomas O’Hara.

It has 271 apartments.  One of the buildings fronts on Livingston Street and is 26 stories high and the other on Schermerhorn Street is 15 stories high.
