550 Vanderbilt

Superstructure has reached the eighth floor at the rapidly rising 550 Vanderbilt, the first of four condo towers to be built at the Pacific Park mega development. Developed by Greenland Forest City Partners and designed by COOKFOX Architects, the 17-story tower will offer 278 luxury condo units ranging from studios to four-bedrooms.

Located at the eastern most fringe of the larger Pacific Park development, the massing of the building references the existing structures on Dean Street, matching their 60' street wall. The 8-acre future park, designed by Thomas Balsley Associates, will be a feature element for the tower, with residences and amenity spaces designed to showcase the park views. One such amenity, an eighth floor landscaped roof terrace, will offer residents views to the park and the Brooklyn skyline. Some units will also feature private roof terraces in addition to the larger communal roof deck. Other amenities in the building include a resident's lounge, library, children's playroom, private event space, and a fitness center.
