The larger of the two residential buildings at the Pierhouse development in Brooklyn Bridge Park is almost complete, Field Condition reports (via Brownstoner). The limestone-and-glass facade that faces the park is nearly complete, and the scaffolding is coming down, according to the post. The site also includes a smaller residential building at 130 Furman Street, where windows are still being installed, and the controversial 1 Hotel, which sits at the northern end of the development.
Both buildings stand 100 feet tall, and include 106-units spread out over the two buildings. The project is being developed by Toll Brothers and Starwood Capital Group with architecture work by Marvel Architects. Pierhouse—and its Brooklyn Bridge-blocking height—has been the subject of heated debate since work began, but the courts gave it the all clear earlier this year. Sales for the apartments launched in February 2014, and construction is supposed to finish sometime next year.
