New, 8 comments

This will be the megaproject's second fully affordable building

Several new renderings have emerged for Pacific Park's second, fully affordable rental building that's now under construction at 38 Sixth Avenue, right next to the Barclay's Center. Curbed obtained copies of the renderings that were presented at a meeting held by Empire State Development last week.

Pacific Park's first fully affordable building with 298 apartments topped out in early February this year. This second fully affordable building contains 303 apartments and is being designed by SHoP Architects.

Standing 23 stories tall, the units in the rental building are divided into 66 studios, 131 one-bedrooms, 90 two-bedrooms, and 16 three-bedroom apartments.

The range of affordability, as seen below, varies from 40 percent of area median income (AMI) and goes up to 165 percent of AMI.

Amenities in the building include laundry facilities on each floor, a residents lounge, bike storage, a roof terrace, a fitness center, and a children's play area.

What's more the building will also house Pacific Park's health center, which will be located on ground floor along with space for retail. The building also comes with underground parking.

The project broke ground in June 2015 and is expected to be complete sometime in the winter of 2017.

There are plans to create a total of 2,250 affordable units at Pacific Park when the entire megaproject is complete. Currently there are 1,800 apartments being built across six buildings at the development, of which 800 are affordable units.
