Façade work is shaping up at 37 Sixth Avenue, a 26-story, 343,788-square-foot residential building in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Alternately addressed as 495 Dean Street and 664 Pacific Street, the project is designed by Marvel Architects and The Brodsky Organization and will add 323 rental units to the Pacific Park master plan. The site is located between Dean Street and Pacific Street, directly across from Barclays Center and 18 Sixth Avenue, another residential project underway in the neighborhood.
New photographs show the degree of progress that has occurred on the property since our last update in July, when construction was still on its way to topping out. More than two thirds of the building is now clad in the brown brick and glass envelope, with preparation underway for the remainder of the floors, where an insulation layer is being applied to the metal stud frames. The window frames will go in next, followed by the brick surface.
The multi-story podium features some oversized window openings awaiting the installation of their glass.
Located diagonally across the street, the 532-foot-tall 18 Sixth Avenue stands prominently over the neighborhood. Though 37 Sixth Avenue doesn’t approach the former’s height, both contribute well to the density of the neighborhood surrounding Barclays Center.
A 616-seat, 69,858-square-foot public middle school will occupy the first five floors of the building and two floors below street level. Residential amenities include a gym, indoor and outdoor residential lounges, and a children’s playroom.
37 Sixth Avenue is slated to be finished in the fourth quarter of 2021, as noted on the construction fence.
