  • Size: 1,100,000 square feet
  • Completion Date: 2016

Phase I, a 730,000-square-foot retail development, maximizes its street frontage and minimizes interior spaces; creating a dynamic center to attract people from throughout the city and spur a hub of economic activity in Brooklyn’s downtown.

Phase II adds a 375,000-square-foot high-rise residential building on top of a retail podium. The sustainable building design incorporates highly filtered indoor air, extensive commissioning, and the use of low-VOC emitting materials throughout the project. Low-flow plumbing fixtures throughout the building reduce potable water consumption. The landscape design features native and adaptive vegetation that limits the amount of water required for irrigation and a high-efficiency drip irrigation system that minimizes water loss to evaporation.
