YIMBY went on a hard hat tour of 123 Linden Boulevard in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn, which is now topped out at 26 stories. Located between Bedford Avenue and Rogers Avenue, it is currently the tallest structure in the neighborhood. Hill West Architects is the designer of the 229-foot-tall tower while the Moinian Group and Bushburg Properties are the developers. Whitehall Interiors is the interior designer while MNS is handling the leasing and marketing.

Of the structure’s 469,000 gross square feet, 366,000 will be dedicated to residential use. The property will yield 467 rentals, averaging 558 square feet apiece. Eighty-five of the units will have private balconies, which will be scattered across the northern and southern façades in a staggered and checkered pattern. The ground floor and first floor in the podium will contain 288 vehicle parking spaces as well as storage for 192 bicycles.

The closest subways are the B and Q trains at the Church Avenue station. Prospect Park is a six-block walk to the west and can easily be seen from the building, as can the skylines of Downtown Brooklyn, Lower Manhattan, and Midtown. The Verrazano Narrows Bridge and Statue of Liberty are also visible from the outdoor swimming pool and rooftop space.

The building will contain over 50,000 square feet of residential amenities. The cellar level will have a fitness center, a steam room and sauna, a game room and golf simulator, a business center, a residential lounge, a party room, a screening room, and a large indoor swimming pool and hot tub underneath a ceiling of sparkling, hand-laid tiles. The fourth floor will have a half basketball court, a dog run, an outdoor fitness space, landscaped planters and outdoor seating, a co-working lounge, a children’s playroom, and another residential lounge. The 22nd floor will come with an outdoor rooftop pool along with a staircase that leads to more space for residents to walk around and enjoy the views of Brooklyn and the city skyline.

  2. Thanks for moving new views to its progress control, with my sexual-eyes design different on net weight. (Thanks to Michael Young)

  3. The façade would’ve looked great without those ugly balconies sticking out.

  4. Shame on you for not mentioning that the Brooklyn botanical garden will have sections with Shadows and dead section due to the building going up near the Brooklyn botanical garden.

    • Dude, one building doth not a botanical garden kill. Central Park South is not a plant-free dead zone. Shadows move over the course of the day and any area hit by a shadow for a period of time will still spend most of the day in sunlight.

    • The development you’re thinking of is 40 Crown St. This one’s over a mile away.

    • Shame on you for mindlessly buying into the shadow hysteria, which is so absurd and divorced from reality that it would be laughable if we didn’t live in a time when gullible people believe every piece of trash they read on the internet.

  5. This building is actually not in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. It is in Flatbush, several blocks beyond the boundary of PLG.

    • And a very dreary and unsafe part of Flatbush.

      • As a long time resident of flatbush and just three blocks away from this building, you are correct. This bldg.is in flatbush.

      • @nyc101 “Dreary & unsafe”?…hmm, not enough people that look like you live there yet? Don’t you worry, the people who can afford to live in this building will change that.

        This is a caribbean/black. Community….disrespectful developers aand gentrifers coming with a sense of entitlement. We are not going anywhere…THIS IS OUR COMMUNITY..

          Why can’t people of all colors live in a community together?

          • East Flatbush Resident | September 9, 2019 at 7:16 pm |

            You’re very naive to assume that this is some ploy to get “people of all colors” to live together in a community. This building is for the rich, and the rich only. Nothing more than to create further class division among the lower and upper class.

          With that type of attitude you are gone. This is everyone’s community, and certainly does not belong to racists like you.

    No mention of the #2..4..5 at church ave trnsfr to #3 or 4 at Franklyn av…Also I would like to know how affordable those rentals will be..any idea of the going price?

    • It’s affordable for those who can afford it and those who apply and are selected for the mandatory affordable housing units. I’m sure you know this.
      Look, people can raise the decibel levels all they want “protesting” in their Twitter echo chamber, but the buildings won’t stop. Neither will the supply stop for the demand.
      Oh, and yeah, how dare the IRT not get a shout out! #numbersmattertoo

  7. Who is doing leasing/marketing?

  8. Great views. Kind of a barfy design.

  9. This is absolutely in Lefferts Gardens. This is 100% Flatbush just outside of the East Flatbush border.

    • Well, Prospect Lefferts Gardens IS in Flatbush and this building is also in Flatbush, but PLG is the northernmost part of Flatbush with a southern boundary well north of this building. Flatbush is quite large and contains a number of neighborhoods.

      • Hello it was a typo. 123 Linden Blvd is in Flatbush, not PLG. I corrected it below but this site doesn’t allow me to delete the incorrect comment. I grew up a block over from 123 Linden Blvd and also knew it as Flatbush/East Flatbush. Never heard of Lefferts Gardens until I was older.

  10. This is absolutely NOT in Lefferts Gardens. This is Flatbush, 11226.

  11. Why would you think Linden Blvd. is in Prospect Lefferts Gardens? Actually this is hardly a new claim. The first “PLG” house a broker showed my wife and I back in 1974 was on Linden. Even then I knew the broker was lying, just as he lied about the “brass” plumbing that was obviously lead.

    So hideous. So not PLG. But do lie away to the idiots who will move there thinking it is.

  13. eyesore, in Flatbush, tiny apartments

  14. Its flatbush, and for one bedroom apartment is 2,230 unaffordable for the long time residents in the community, gentrification equal no good greedy politician
