Between the Great Recession and Superstorm Sandy, South Brooklyn’s renaissance has had fits and starts over the past few years. However, if Sea Breeze Tower is any indication, the ebb has passed and things are flowing smoothly: Brooklyn-base Rybak Development closed on a $47.5 million construction loan and just poured the third floor of the 20-story Brighton Beach tower. Upon completion, the concrete, limestone, and glass building aims to be one of the first LEED Platinum-certified buildings in South Brooklyn. There will be over 27,000 square feet of commercial space on the lower levels and rental apartments on top.

Of the 114 studio through three-bedroom apartments, 30% will be allocated for affordable housing. All units will have 11’ ceilings, high-end finishes, views of the Atlantic Ocean from south-facing apartments, and views of the Manhattan skyline from northwest-facing apartments. An extensive amenity package includes a 24-hour doorman, state-of-the-art fitness center, lounge, children’s playroom, outdoor recreation area, bike room, a 135-spot parking garage, and package room with cold storage.

Sea Breeze Tower overlooks Asser Levy Park, where a covered amphitheater has been shelved, but the modest band shell, fitness paths, and playground remain popular. New York Aquarium and the historic boardwalk are a short walk away, as are the culinary offerings of Brighton Beach Avenue. The Ocean Park subway station is two and a half blocks from the building.
Construction of Sea Breeze Tower takes place at an especially exciting time for Rybak Development. Elsewhere in Brooklyn, Williamsburg’s Element88 is nearly finished and has listings starting at $795K. Across the water in Long Island City, the pool-topped condominium known as QNS44 has just topped out.
