Work is nearing completion on 595 Dean Street, a two-building mixed-use development in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn‘s Pacific Park master plan. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by TF Cornerstone, the complex consists of a 28-story East Tower and 23-story West Tower and will yield a combined 798 residential units in studio to two-bedroom layouts, with 240 slated for affordable housing. The development also includes a 103,028-square-foot Chelsea Piers Fitness Center and Field House, a 469-vehicle parking garage, 3,412 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and a 72,600-square-foot public plaza. TFC Pacific Park GC is the general contractor and MNLA is the landscape designer for the property, which is bound by Pacific Street to the north, Dean Street to the south, 550 Vanderbilt Avenue to the east, and 535 Carlton Apartments to the west.
At the time of our last update in February, the two superstructures stood topped out but remained exposed with façade work just getting underway. Since then, all of the punched floor-to-ceiling windows have been installed and surrounded by the design scheme’s various exterior materials, which include multiple colors of brick and metal paneling. Belden Tri-State Building Materials supplied the bricks. Meanwhile, the construction elevators remain attached to both towers, but should be dismantled in the coming weeks as interior work comes to a close.

Units come with oversized windows, providing abundant natural light and sweeping views over the neighborhood and the Downtown Brooklyn skyline to the north.
Residential amenities at 595 Dean Street include a rooftop deck with an outdoor swimming pool, multiple lounging areas, grilling stations, and common spaces including a tenth-floor lounge. The upcoming Chelsea Piers Field House will feature youth sports facilities and a learn-to-swim pool and space for classes, camps, and after-school programming. The public open spaces will come with a playground, a picnic grove, abundant landscaping, a dog run, and a central lawn surrounded by walkways, a fountain, and shaded woodland gardens.
595 Dean Street is expected to open in early 2023 with the lottery expected to go live on housing connect shortly after.
