Avalon Brooklyn Bay Prepares for Leasing; Beach-, Bay- & Pool-Side Living in Sheepshead Bay
March 6, 2017
It seems no city neighborhood will be spared from the march of upscale high-rise buildings. Over in Sheepshead Bay, where you’d be hard-pressed to find a building over 8 floors, a 30-story rental building has taken shape at 1501 Voorhies Avenue. Named Avalon Brooklyn Bay, the tower soars from a large and peculiar-shaped parcel that is sided by the B and Q line’s Sheepshead Bay station.

I drove by this the other day on the Belt Parkway. Honestly, its nice to see some modern vertical around here, complementing the older and a decent amount of newer construction in the area. This one definitely towers over as you pass by on the Belt.
