This past Monday, Greenland Forest City Partners marked another milestone in their immense Pacific Park development with the topping out of 38 Sixth Avenue. The 23-story tower is one of two fully affordable properties for the master plan. When done, the high-rise will boast 303 apartments, a health center, and 8,700 square feet of retail space.
Cresting at a height of 218 feet, the building is another milestone for the 16-tower master plan. Designed by SHoP Architects, the blocky building stands between Dean Street and Pacific Street in Prospect Heights, and is adjacent to the Barclays Center which was also designed by firm. The tower joins five residential buildings underway on the superblock: 550 Vanderbilt, 535 Carlton Avenue, 664 Pacific Street, 615 Dean Street, and 461 Dean Street.
While still shrouded in orange construction netting, the building will soon have a variegated façade that embraces pattern, texture, and light. The structure is split into three stacked volumes, each with a distinct pattern and color: a dark gray base meets red and orange layering above, followed by panelling that is subtly gray, and then topped with a mix of gold bands and gray panels. The residential portion of the building will have a traditional covered entrance for tenants, and the retail at the building's base will have full-height glass storefronts.

The interiors will be clean and modern with large windows to maximize light. The building’s lounge will be distinguished by beautiful wood paneling. Other amenities include a fitness center, landscaped garden, mailroom, and laundry room. The building is scheduled to open in 2017.

Pacific Park has been in conception for over a decade, and was previously known as Atlantic Yards. World-renowned architect Frank Gehry conceived the master plan which essentially creates a brand-new community in the heart of Brooklyn. Once finished, the development is expected to add 6,430 units of housing in 14 residential buildings, with 2,250 of these units classified as affordable. At the center of the plan will be a new 8-acre park, designed by landscape architect Thomas Balsley, and will feature rolling lawns, a dog run, athletic space, and a public promenade.
