Around the corner from the recently topped-out 664 Pacific Street, construction at 18 6th Avenue trails not far behind. The 49-story rental tower rises next door to the Barclays Center and is closing in on its apex of over 500 feet high. Its skyscraping altitude will make it the tallest building in the Brooklyn mega-development Pacific Park and among the top ten tallest buildings in the borough.

The building's height (along with a tower planned at the B1 site) was a sticking point early in the master plan's approval process back when it was known as Atlantic Yards. City officials mandated that whatever building to rise from the plot (aka site B4) should rise no higher than the 512-foot-tall Williamsburg Savings Bank Building (One Hanson Place ) nearby.

18 16th Avenue is being developed in a joint venture with Brodsky Organization and Greenland Forest City Partners. The design by Perkins Eastman will hold 859 units, 258 of which will be affordable, and residential amenities. Completion is estimated for 2022.

The construction progress takes place at a time when four residential buildings are currently open at Pacific Park. Listings in luxury condominium 550 Vanderbilt Avenue range from $639K for a studio to $3.995 million for a three-bedroom maisonette with private terrace. At the other end of the scale, the rentals at 535 Carlton Avenue and 38 Sixth Avenue are one hundred percent affordable. 461 Dean Street, the world’s tallest modular building, falls somewhere in between with market-rate rentals from $2,801/month to $6,118/month; the building is currently offering up to two and a half months free rent and reduced security deposit.

In addition to hundreds of new housing units, 664 Pacific Street will bring an 800-seat public middle school to the neighborhood. Retail and community tenants include ceramics studio BKLYN CLAY, Brooklyn mainstay Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream, and a New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital branch.
Pacific Park master plan from 2014 shows the project is well behind schedule
By the time Pacific Park is finished, the 22-acre master plan will contain 15 buildings with a total of 6,430 housing units, 2,250 of which will be affordable. It will also hold new office space, new retail space, and eight acres of public open space designed by Thomas Balsley. The multitude of subway lines at the nearby Atlantic Avenue Barclays Center stop drives home the importance of infrastructure, which means Pacific Park will also include improvements like new rail access to and from Atlantic Terminal Station and a new storage and maintenance facility for the Long Island Railroad.
