It's a big month for Pacific Park, the Brooklyn megaproject formally known as Atlantic Yards. The developers filed plans for a 244-unit condo building at 615 Dean Street; launched sales at the first condo building, 550 Vanderbilt Avenue; and today, construction began on the development's second affordable apartment building. Located at 38 Sixth Avenue (previously known as 30 Sixth Avenue), the building is also Pacific Park's second SHoP Architects-designed residential building. It will hold 303 apartments and be 100 percent affordable.
Filings with the Attorney General's office confirm that the most recently announced building will indeed be condos, but they did not specify prices. It will be designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox. The address for the building puts it mid-block between Carlton and Vanderbilt Avenues; it is labeled as B12 on Pacific Park's map.
B2, the first residential tower, is chugging along beside the Barclays Center, with new prefab mods being placed every day. It's not yet taller than the arena, but it will eventually rise to 32 stories. Because of all the delays and trouble that the building has caused, Greenland USA, Forest City's partner on the development, isn't sure if they will use modular construction again, even though Forest City's CEO wants to.
The other building currently under construction is 535 Carlton Avenue, which will also be 100 percent affordable. So to recap: four buildings are currently under construction, and another one is in the pipeline. Guess Greenland wasn't kidding around when they said they wanted to speed things up.
