YIMBY: Pacific Park’s 17-Story Condo Tops Out at 550 Vanderbilt Avenue

It’s been 12 long years since the Pacific Park megaproject was first announced as Atlantic Yards, and the Prospect Heights development hit a major milestone yesterday with the topping out of 550 Vanderbilt Avenue, a 17-story condo building.

What this area needs - is a truly spectacular supertall to serve as a dominant building of the whole area. It used to be for almost 80 years Williamsburg bank building, which towers over everything else there. But it is obvious that a new icon of equal status and style is needed there.

550 Vanderbilt Avenue (see 2nd post for construction update) - condos, 17 Fl

Revealed: 550 Vanderbilt Avenue, 17-Story Pacific Park Brooklyn Condo Tower



[...]
COOKFOX will be designing the 275-unit condo tower, which will feature a mix of studio through three-bedroom apartments. The façade will be a mix of masonry and precast concrete, for a more traditional look than the Gehry and SHoP designs.
