Description

This snazzy, 32-story, modular apartment building at 461 Dean Street at Flatbush Avenue next to the Barclays Center at the $4.9 billion, 22-acre, Pacific Park Brooklyn complex was completed in 2016 and has 373 apartments, of which 182 are “affordable.  The complex is at the nexus of the Prospect Heights, Park Slope, Clinton Hill and Fort Greene sections of Brooklyn.

It was developed by Forest City Rattner and Skanska and designed by SHoP Architects, which also designed two other apartment buildings in the complex and the very large Barclays Center arena building with the dark red, reptilian-like skin with slit lights.  The center opened in 2012.  Cook/Fox, Marvel Architects, and Kohn Pedersen Fox are designing other high-rise buildings in the complex.

Skanska withdrew from the project when it was delayed.  An August 31, 2015 article at citylimits.org by Norman Oder said that “problems with stacking the modules and keeping water out made for a slower, more expensive build-out.”  When announced in 2012, the tower was planned as the world’s tallest modular building.

Skanska was replaced by Krulak, a modular building component factory at the Brooklyn Navy Yard formed by Roger Krulak, a former Forest City executive.

In 2014, Forest City bought out its 75 percent equity partner, the Arizona State Retirement System, according to Mr. Oder’s article, adding that “the tower, once expected to cost $155 million, could ultimately cost $265 million.”  Mr. Oder also is the author of the atlanticyardsreport.blogspot.com.

Forest City, which originally aimed to achieve about a 20 percent savings in construction costs and to cut 10 months from a 30-month construction schedule, eventually agreed to partner in 2014 with the Shanghai-based, government-owned Greenland Group, which decided that the next three towers would be built conventionally.

An earlier rendering had indicated that SHoP’s two other buildings in the complex would be thematically related to the building but different in their massing with one being lower in scale and the other being significantly taller.  Both buildings have similarly designed sections, but the 2014 decision to build the rest of the site conventionally may differ.

The Pacific Park complex was originally called the Atlantic Yards project and was planned to have 6,430 apartments of which 2,250 will be affordable and all the units will be modular.

The project is one block south of the landmark Art Deco-style Williamsburg Bank Tower and the Brooklyn Academy of Music and it is on top of a very major transit center.

A November 16, 2016 article by Rebecca Baird-Remba at newyorkyimby.com noted that 84,000 people had applied for the building’s “affordable” units.
