COOKFOX Architects’ new project, 550 Vanderbilt Avenue has opened for sale. The 17-storey building will be the first of four condominiums in the 22-acre Pacific Park Brooklyn development in Prospect Heights. The project aims to create a new neighbourhood of 14 buildings, all connected to 8-acres of public green space designed by landscape architecture firm Thomas Balsley Associates. Read more about this project after the break.

550 Vanderbilt sits on the northwest corner of Vanderbilt Avenue and Dean Street in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, bookending the Pacific Park site. The building matches the 60’ street wall of Dean Street and is gradually set back, giving residents expansive light and views through the oversized windows and creating an extension to the existing neighborhood. The 278 residences are available in a diverse range of sizes and plans, including studio apartments, 4-bedroom homes, maisonettes and penthouses. All residences feature large windows and access to the adjoining new 8-acre park.

With sustainability in mind, the building has minimal detailing, designed to have a strong connection to nature and feel like an extension of the park. Views to the park are prioritized in both residential spaces and amenities, along with landscaping elements throughout the building, including on private terraces and on the shared roof terrace.

Residents will have access to over 10,000 square feet of amenities, including a landscaped roof terrace, residents’ lounge with fireplace, library, children’s playroom, guest chefs’ kitchen for entertaining and private events, a resident manager and a fitness center. There will also be bicycle storage, private storage units and underground parking.
