COOKFOX has filed a new building permit for 535 Carlton Avenue, the next of the 15 buildings that will eventually rise at Pacific Park, né Atlantic Yards. The application is for a structure at the corner of Carlton and Dean, on terra firma, not the deck between Atlantic and Pacific. All of the 298 apartments will be let at below-market rates, with maximum household incomes ranging from $48,000 to $104,000 annually.
The building will rise 19 stories – tall for this corner of Downtown Brooklyn, but the shortest building in the complex once known as Atlantic Yards. Its total construction area will be 364,000 square feet, per the application, with a bit more than 275,000 square feet set aside for residential use, working out to average unit sizes of 925 square feet – generous, family-sized apartments, bigger than most new rentals in Brooklyn.
In contrast to the tower now rising — once known as B2 — 535 Carlton will be built using conventional rather than module construction techniques. Last month, Forest City Ratner’s MaryAnne Gilmartin told Curbed that launching more modular projects “would be shortsighted,” though she said “[i]t is my great hope that we will use it again in Pacific Park.”
The project will break ground in December.
