Sales have launched for 561 Pacific Street‘s 63 residential units in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. The 12-story project is being designed by ODA and developed by Adam America Real Estate. The site is located on the northern corner of Fourth Avenue and Pacific Street, next to the Atlantic Avenue Barclays Center subway station with access to the 2, 3, 4, 5, B, D, N, Q, and R trains. The development is also addressed as 24 Fourth Avenue.

Recent photos by Tectonic show the reinforced concrete structure surpassing the halfway mark. At this pace, construction could easily top out before the end of spring.

The exterior curtain wall will feature a mixture of earth-tone bricks and floor-to-ceiling glass panels. The lower half of the building contains the largest floor plates, while the upper portion will feature different floor layouts for each level. A number of corner terraces and balconies will be staggered and placed between the exterior interstitial spaces and setbacks. Almost all the studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units will have their own private outdoor balcony or terrace. The interiors will come with white oak and walnut finishes and Caesarstone marble.

A two-story central courtyard with abundant landscaping will be situated in the middle of the property. Two floors of amenities will include a fitness center, a children’s playroom, a residential lounge, and a landscaped rooftop with panoramic views of Downtown Brooklyn to the north, the brownstone-lined streets to the south, Barclays Center to the east, and the New York harbor to the west.

Construction of 561 Pacific Street is scheduled to complete sometime next year.

  1. Pardon me for stinking up the place: Word salad. (Thanks to Michael Young)

  2. This boxy new build is not an architecturally adequate replacement for the beautiful Church of the Redeemer that was razed to make way for this dumbed down modernist pile of vapid glass and brick. When I first moved to what used to be called “brownstone Brooklyn” in the early 90’s, it was said that Brooklyn had the largest concentration of intact 19th century streets apes outside of Philadelphia. This very visible intersection is clearly visually poorer thanks to the loss of the church which was a kind of anchor for the surrounding streets cape.

      12-story, built on each intersection towers of 4th Avenue, are slowly approaching to center of Brooklyn. Nothing special, just modernist revenge.

    Nobody opposed this, and ODA’s people liked this, now 2 blocks from Atlantic Avenue, actually in Downtown Brooklyn area. They want to built 11-12 story boxy like towers on each intersection of 4th Avenue, all way down to Bay Ridge. How many we have already, 2 dozens here, but from Pacific to Bay Ridge is like 70 blocks. So we can built not 24, but 70 times 4 on each corner. And if they are all residential, and if they are average 70 apartments in each one, this like 15-25k apartments for 210-280 buildings. I use lower figure if they are building just 3 towers on each intersection. Also, they may actually skip to every other one, so this will be half amount of towers, still well over 100 (11-12 stories), or 7,000 apartments.
    Unfortunately, when you want to replace older negleted worn out structures, you must built higher and often the price for this plain mediocre design of new structures to save money for same developer to built more buildings here. The Subway increased traffic is another price for that, may be that’s why we should develop light rail lines here, and better use them as a “light rail like full electrical buses” on tracks, so it will given them “right of way”. This like 1/10 cost of building “Second Avenue Subway” in Downtown Brooklyn area. And they can built it on Third Avenue under Gowanus Expwy.

  4. They knock down a church to build these glass buildings with balony terrance and fitness centerand charge thousands of dollars The hipsters move in and stay a year or two and them leave It is a damn shame how these management companies all along this area have robbed the people who move into these places

  5. Demolishing a beatifull church while across the street the ugly stores looking like ugly warehouses are still standing. I understand the developer owned this plot, but still its painfull to see building like this go while cheap and widespread (= low desnity) buildings and plots are kept.

  6. Ahhh New York commenters make me smile. I miss you all.

  7. how many upset about loss of church attend one frequently?

  8. Regretting the loss of the church has nothing to do with faith, and there is nothing in my original comment to suggest otherwise. The church did not matter to me as a church but as a building. There is – or maybe used to be – more to a building than its mere utility. It is immaterial to me if the building is occupied by a congregation and functions as a church. Rather, it is what the building brings to the streetscape that seemed important, so I preferred the old church building relative to the new box that is arising in its place. For me, it would have been perfectly fine — better, in fact — had it been repurposed into condos – as has happened with numerous churches and other ecclesiastical buildings in Brooklyn.
