Construction is nearing completion on 533 Pacific Street, aka Post House, an 11-story residential building in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn that is also alternatively addressed as 542 Atlantic Avenue. Designed by Issac & Stern Architects and developed by Sterling Town Equities, the 90,000-square-foot structure will yield 41 condominium units and two four-story townhouses. Pro-H Development Inc. is the general contractor for the property, which is located on a through-block parcel between Third Avenue to the west, Pacific Street to the south, and Fourth Avenue to the east.
Work has progressed steadily since our last update in July 2021, when the reinforced concrete superstructure was about to top out. Recent photographs showcase the finished look of the building’s light brick façade and signature brick arches along the main elevation facing Atlantic Avenue, as well as the details in the geometric metal paneling on the upper levels.
At the time of our visit, crews were in the process of hoisting mechanical equipment atop the roof parapet. Metal railings line the pocketed terrace and setbacks, and this element can also be found between two levels of windows. The rear southern side appears to still be covered in black netting and metal scaffolding, and sidewalk scaffolding obscures the ground floor, but this could likely be taken down later this spring.
YIMBY last reported that 533 Pacific Street’s rear profile will have a red brick façade and three ground-floor arched cutouts, with one of them serving as an entryway to a gated private garden. A red brick pathway will trek through the landscaped area and lead to the residential lobby. The property will also have a cellar for storage, a parking garage for residents, and mechanical equipment. Interiors are being designed by Workshop/APD.
533 Pacific Street should be fully completed later this year.
