Construction is nearing completion on 647 Baltic Street, a five-story single-family residential property in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Developed by 647 Baltic Villa and constructed by Paintly Corp., the structure rises from a 2,000-square-foot interior lot between 4th and 5th Avenues, near the intersection of Baltic and Butler Streets. No architect has been disclosed for the project.
Recent photographs show the entire structure clad in a light-colored brick envelope with various vertical and horizontal running bond arrangements. A series of shallow recessed windows and open-air cutouts are scattered across the southern, eastern, and northern sides of the slender building. The brickwork seamlessly continues upward to the sloped mechanical bulkhead, which features doors leading out onto two roof decks lined with glass railings. An additional pocketed terrace is positioned on the southern edge of the fourth floor facing Baltic Street.
The ground floor remains obscured by the sidewalk fencing, but should be dismantled soon.
A rendering posted on site previews the look of 647 Baltic Street’s ground floor. However, given the departure from the earth-toned paneling for the bulkhead, the final appearance of the entryway may differ from the illustration.
The nearest subways from the site are the R train at the Union Street station along 4th Avenue to the south, and the 2 and 3 trains at the Bergen Street station to the northeast along Flatbush Avenue.
Construction on 647 Baltic Street should conclude around the end of this year or in early 2024 at the very latest.
