Shunning the slick and glossy towers overtaking the city, the architects at Hill West chose hearty masonry and a metal facade for their 1 Flatbush Avenue project. In homage to the surrounding Downtown Brooklyn context, the dozen-or-so completed stories hover above the prominent intersection of Flatbush Avenue and Fulton Street, waiting to rise to 21 floors at completion. In 2014, the 160,000-square-foot, two-parcel site was acquired in a partnership-deal between Capstone Equities, the Carlyle Group and Slate Property Group. Once finished, later this year, the $35 million project will hold 183 rental apartments and valuable ground-level retail.
Newly-published renderings on Hill West’s relaunched website provide a sharper view of the well-articulated façade composed of red brick, multi-paned windows and metal accents. The conservatively-massed, wedge-shaped building rises in three volumes to a rooftop height of 210 feet. The building’s upper stories and its corner prow will reference a neo-industrial appearance; three levels of retail will anchor its base and will be encased in glass; and its mid-level floors, along Flatbush and Fulton Street, will be in red brick.

The residential entrance will be on Fulton Street and will be highlighted by a bronze marquis to distinguish it from other retail storefronts; inside will be a double-height lobby ornated with a grand chandelier. Amenities will include a rooftop terrace, a shuffleboard court, communal lounges, a game room, a fitness center, yoga studio, tenant storage and bicycle storage.
The tower will rise directly adjacent to the site purchased by Slate Property Group and Meadow Partners, at 560-570 Fulton Street, which offers nearly 72,000 square feet of buildable surface —and according to The Real Deal— will likely hold condominiums. Also sharing the block is Ismael Levya’s glossy rental tower, 66 Rockwell Place, and the 260,000-square-foot office conversion, at 41 Flatbush Avenue, spearheaded by Quinlan Development Group LLC and Building & Land Technology.
