The Brodsky Organization and Greenland USA announced on Tuesday the launch of leasing at Brooklyn Crossing, the latest development within the mixed-use development project Pacific Park in Prospect Heights. 

Located at 18 Sixth Ave., the 51-story residential building offers 858 new units of mixed-income housing, 258 of which are set aside for affordable housing, ranging from studios to one- to three-bedroom apartments. Retail space occupies the building’s ground floor.

Occupancy will begin this month. The leasing is headed by the team at Nancy Packes Inc. 

“It’s an exciting time in the market as we launch leasing of another remarkable building in Pacific Park, bringing 258 units of dedicated affordable housing to the Prospect Heights neighborhood,” said Alexander Brodsky of the Brodsky Organization.

“Brooklyn Crossing is Pacific Park’s most ambitious residential building to date and underlines our commitment to delivering affordable housing right in the heart of Brooklyn,” said Scott Solish, executive vice president of development of Greenland USA. “Brooklyn Crossing is another critical milestone at Pacific Park, Brooklyn.”

Designed by global design and architecture firm Perkins Eastman, Brooklyn Crossing offers access to highlights of Brooklyn’s culture and culinary scene, including Barclays Center and Brooklyn Academy of Music, as well as having unparalleled access to public transportation.

Lemay + Escobar handled the building interiors, including the state-of-the-art, 26,000-square-foot amenities including the Sky Lounge and rooftop pool; private gym and fitness center; meeting and dining room; multiple lounges and event rooms; a second outdoor terrace with grill stations; kids playroom; 24/7 concierge and doorman; and laundry room. 

“Everything was made to be timeless,” said Andres Escobar, Senior Partner and Design Principal with Lemay + Escobar Architecture D.P.C. “We wanted the spaces to be pleasing to the eye, but not trendy.” 

Michael Lew, principal with Perkins Eastman, added, “We created a sculptured icon that connects the old and new neighborhoods, and enlivens the public streetscape. This is a dynamic addition to the Brooklyn skyline.”

The Brooklyn Crossing lease launch comes five months after the Brodsky Organization announced leasing at Plank Road, another Brodsky-developed building within Pacific Park. Located at 662 Pacific Street, Plank Road is a 27-story rental building offering 312 apartments and will also be home to a future public middle school at the base.

 To date, Pacific Park, formerly known as Atlantic Yards, has six completed residential buildings. In addition, innovative retail brands and community facilities have opened outposts across Pacific Park, including BKLYN CLAY, Brooklyn’s largest ceramics studio, and Cain Sloan at 535 Carlton; Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream, Beer Street, and Ciao Gloria cafe at 550 Vanderbilt; and Wonderforest Nature Preschool and New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital’s medical center at 38 Sixth Avenue.

Pacific Park also features substantial infrastructure improvements including a new storage and maintenance facility for the Long Island Railroad, new rail access to and from the Atlantic Terminal station and significant improvements to the infrastructure network in the surrounding area. 

The site is anchored by the sports and entertainment arena Barclays Center and the Atlantic Terminal transit hub along the Atlantic Avenue corridor.

 Directly adjacent to the Barclays Center, Brooklyn Crossing is connected to nine subway lines at the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center station and the Long Island Railroad at Atlantic Terminal.
