Back in September, filings were submitted for the planned 26-story, 323-unit mixed-use building at 37 Sixth Avenue/495 Dean Street/664 Pacific Street, in Prospect Heights, and now DNAinfo has the project’s reveal. A 616-seat, 69,858 square-foot public school will span seven floors within the building: two below-grade levels and the first five floors. The project is a part of the Pacific Park mega-development, and a team comprised of Greenland Group and Forest City Ratner is developing; Marvel Architects is designing. Demolition is currently underway on three townhouses fronting Dean Street.
