670 Pacific Street: Review and Ratings

Review of 670 Pacific Street by Carter Horsley

This pleasant, 8-story residential property 670 Pacific Street in the Prospect Heights section of Brooklyn was completed in 2016 and has 86 rental apartments.

It was designed by Kutnicki Bernstein and developed by the Read Property Group.

Durukan Design, which is headed by Funda Durukan, was the interior designer. Durukan’s other projects include Castle Braid in Brooklyn at 114 Troutman, which features a dramatic Deconstructivist major window on a courtyard that continues a bit inside the building that has “artist” walls and has a 8-step-down concrete stair in the lobby whose third stair from the top is wood and extends off the stair to become the concierge desk; 44-51 Purves Street in Queens that has a laser-cut perforated Corten reception lobby desk and an oversize I-Beam canopy with backlit Corten panels; and 785 Dekalb Avenue in Brooklyn that uses wood planks salvaged from the wreckage on Hurricane Sandy on the façade and has a rustic 6-story atrium with brick arches.

Bottom Line

A centrally located mid-rise building with small apartments but many amenities and quite striking interior design.

Description

The concrete façade of the buildings, whose top two floors are partially setback, is very nicely punctuated with balconies with glass railings.

The website of Durukan Design provides the following commentary of the building’s interior design:

“The building is designed in an industrial modern style, mixing exposed brick, rustic wood, and raw steel. Lobby features a custom stone water feature at either side of the entry doors, and a sleek marble and wood reception desk. Custom Cor-Ten ceiling beams create a grid pattern extending from the entrance to the recreation room amenity, which is partitioned with loft-style framed glass dividers. The recreation room also includes a custom fireplace and built-in plank bookcases.

Amenities

The building has a very handsome, attended lobby, a landscaped roof deck with BBQ and dining areas, a bocce ball court and a circular running track, a bicycle room, a residents’ lounge with screening area, storage, a garage and a fitness center.

Apartments

Apartments have washers and dryers.

According to Durukan Design, “Kitchens have stainless cabinetry, wine storage, beamed ceilings with decorative pendant lighting, and oversized blackboard wall” and “Bathrooms are designed with oversized vanity mirrors that are lighted by industrial style fixtures and accentuated by concrete look tile and reclaimed wood.”

Apartment 204 is a two-bedroom unit with an open, pass-through kitchen and an 18-foot-long living room.

Apartment 602 is a one-bedroom unit with an open kitchen and a 14-foot-long living room with a 9-foot-wide balcony.
