When we last checked on Downtown Brooklyn's 1 Flatbush Avenue, the building was nearly half way up and beginning to take its place in the rapidly densifying neighborhood. Now, five months later, the structural frame has now topped out. The 19-story rental building is being shaped by Hill West Architects. Its two-tiered massing echoes its prominent wedge-shaped site at the intersection of Flatbush Avenue and Fulton Street. Bucking the trend of full-glazed curtain walls, the building will be enclosed in a timeless red brick, metal and multi-pane windowed facade. And as of last week, the first line of windows has been installed along the Fox Square-facing lower floors.

The 160,000-square-foot venture is being pushed forward via a partnership between Capstone Equities, the Carlyle Group, and Slate Property Group. With the heavily trafficked Fulton Street Mall located across Flatbush and the convergence of numerous subway lines nearby, the developers aim to take advantage of the site’s visibility by providing three levels of retail at its base.

Above will be rental apartments, 183 units in all, with floors 4-13 holding fourteen apartments apiece, and floors 14-19 holding seven. According to Hill West, residents will be greeted by a double-height lobby that will hold a grand chandelier, and other amenities will include a rooftop terrace, a shuffleboard court, communal lounges, a game room, a fitness center, yoga studio, tenant storage, and bicycle storage. Delivery can be expected later this year.
