664 Pacific Street, the fourth tower of the 17-building Pacific Park master plan (Brooklyn Atlantic Yards) has topped out at 26 stories, 412 feet tall. The reinforced concrete-frame high-rise, also known as Pacific Park B15, will house 313 market-rate and affordable apartments as well as an 800-seat public middle school upon substantial completion in 2021.
Developed by the Brodsky Organization and designed by Marvel Architects, the tower is the only in the Pacific Park plan to share its block with pre-existing rowhouses and pre-war buildings. According to the architects, the building is designed to "function both as a gateway to the residential neighborhood’s dynamic new era and as an extension of brownstone Brooklyn." The site is very close to the Barclays Center, Atlantic Terminal, the NYPD’s 78th Precinct Station, and the FDNY Engine 219/Ladder 105 firehouse; and the decision to be the location of a new school has generated some controversy.

The 100,000-square-foot school will be known as M.S. One Brooklyn (officially I.S. 653) and will occupy the first five floors above ground and two floors below. A Brooklyn Eagle story says that the expected occupancy date for the middle school is September 2023. It is implied that the elongated timeline is due to the logistics of the School Construction Authority working with a private developer. "When the authority builds a stand-alone school, it has more control over the completion date," said Tamar Smith, a community liaison for the New York City School Construction Authority.
Marvel Architects note that classrooms will have large windows and the exterior will mimic the civic buildings nearby. In unique New York fashion, the school will have an elevated play yard terrace on a fourth-floor setback and a small outdoor playground at street level. With a focus on the arts, culture, and STEM sectors, the school's academic spaces will include an art room, music room, library, science labs, and project rooms. There will also be two gymnasiums and a cafeteria.

The project is participating in the city's revamped 421-A tax abatement program, Affordable New York. Thirty percent of all the rental apartments (approximately 95) will be deemed "affordable" to low- and middle-income households. Apartments will begin on the sixth floor and range from 13 to 17 units per floor. Shared resident perks include a bike room, children's playroom, fitness center, an amenity lounge with terrace, and a top-floor swimming pool with accompanying outdoor terrace.

The heavyweight residential landlord Brodsky acquired the development lease at 664 Pacific Street from Greenland Forest City in September 2017. This is their first ground-up foray in Brooklyn but the firm manages 7 Dekalb and City Tower in the City Point development nearby. Their Manhattan endeavors include Enclave at the Cathedral, One Columbus Place, and West End Towers.
