between Chester Court & Fenimore Street View Full Building Profile

Review of 626 Flatbush Avenue by Carter Horsley

The impressive, Parkline at 626 Flatbush Avenue between Fenimore and Hawthorne streets in the Prospect Lefferts Garden section of Brooklyn is a 24-story rental building that is the tallest in its neighborhood.

It was built in 2016 by the Hudson Companies and designed by Marvel Architects.

It has 254 apartments of which 51 are “affordable” for those making 40 to 50 percent of the area’s median income.

The project also includes 4,758 square feet of retail space on Flatbush Avenue and 3,582 square feet of community facility space that has been leased by the Maple Street School.

It is about a block from the eastern edge of Prospect Park but according to “train tracks behind it mean that to be to the park will require about a five-minute walk.” 

It is about a five-minute walk also to the B/Q express subway stop at Prospect Park.

Bottom Line

A very attractive, slab rental apartment tower with many amenities and a low-rise commercial and community facility wing, both with handsome, perforated tops.


The top of the low-rise building and part of the top of the tower have large rectangular openings that give the development “breezy hats” for a distinctive look.

The tower has three “slab” elements, two beige and one grey, and they are stepped in plan with the middle section having two setbacks in its middle portion.  The two beige sections have many corner windows.

The residential tower is setback 100 feet from the street wall.

The low-rise commercial section of the development continues the 2-3 story context of the neighborhood.

The building is expected to achieve LEED and ENERGY STAR status and has a co-generation plant.


The building has a concierge, a roof deck with a fireplace in the penthouse lounge that also has a chef’s kitchen and bar, a fitness center, a yoga studio, a children’s playroom, a pet grooming center, a terrace above the non-residential space on Flatbush Avenue, a screening room, bicycle storage, storage, a garden and 137 rear-yard surface parking spaces.


There are 11 units on the second and third floors, 14 on floors 4 through 8, 13 on floors 9 through 12, and 11 on floors 13 through 22.

Apartments have washers and dryers.

Apartment H on the 15th and 16th floors is a corner three-bedroom unit with a 20-foot-long living/dining room with an open, “U”-shaped kitchen next to the entry foyer.

Apartment G on floors 4 through 12 is a corner three-bedroom unit with an entry foyer that turns to the 15-foot-wide living/dining room and a windowed, open pass-through kitchen.
