Curtain wall work is getting close to completion on 18 Sixth Avenue, a 49-story residential skyscraper in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by The Brodsky Organization and Greenland Forest City Partners, the 532-foot-tall, 740,000-square-foot building will yield 858 rental units, of which 258 will be dedicated to affordable housing. The project towers over the adjacent Barclays Center and is the tallest building in the 22-acre Pacific Park master plan. The rest of the development will be constructed atop the currently exposed train tracks to the east that run parallel with Atlantic Avenue. Lemay + Escobar is designing the interiors, including the main lobby, the apartments, the corridors, the outdoor terrace and the amenities.
The New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) in Newark has big plans to diversify its campus with residential developments and a dining venue, as well as the construction of an arts and education center. The proposed buildings are part of the performing center’s goal to become a city lifestyle destination and further the cultural hub’s impact on the downtown neighborhood. L + M Development Partners has teamed up with NJPAC and Larchmont for the 7.3-acre campus expansion. Skidmore, Owings & Merrill is responsible for the design of the buildings and streetscapes. NJPAC purchased the property from the state of New Jersey in December 2018.
