DEAN STREET — There’s excitement in the air in a new development at 595 Dean Street as occupancy is underway for developer TF Cornerstone’s brand-new rental building. Designed by Handel Architects, 595 Dean Street launched leasing earlier this month bringing a total of 798 new studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom rentals to the master-planned Pacific Park development in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, which to date includes 3,200 apartments including 1,374 affordable homes built since the opening of the Barclays Center in 2012.

Available on NYC Housing Connect — the NYC Department of Housing Preservation & Development’s online platform — are 240 units for residents earning 130 percent of the area median income (AMI), ranging in eligible income from $78,515 to $187,330.

The mixed-use development delivers nearly 60,000 square feet of public green space and 28,750 square feet of resident-exclusive outdoor amenity spaces designed by renowned landscape firm MNLA. 595 Dean Street is also responsible for an additional 469 vehicle parking garage spots in the neighborhood and 3,412 square feet of ground-floor retail space — leased to Simo Pizza and Chinese eatery, Ni Hao.

Renderings and images of 595 Dean Street show model residences designed by Brooklyn-based design and project management firm Brownstone Boys, which specializes in the complete restoration and remodeling of historic Brooklyn brownstone properties. 595 Dean Street is the Brownstone Boys’ first foray into the multifamily rental space.

Jordan Slocum and Barry Bordelon, aka the Brownstone Bovs, are interior designers, DIY-ers, and Renovation Project Managers in Brooklyn, NY. They share a passion for old homes and everything that comes along with them — the details, the quirks, the character, and especially the parts that need lots of love. The spaces they create marry that historic charm with a clean modern design. Barry & Jordan’s work has been featured in HGTV, Architectural Digest, Domino Magazine, New York Magazine, Rue, Apartment Therapy, Good Morning America, and on Magnolia Network.

The design of the spaces at 595 Dean Street are true to the Brownstone Boys signature design aesthetic where modern design and historic charm intersect. They usually work in historic homes, restore the gorgeous original details, and build in modern elements to complement them. In this space they had the opposite challenge of how to bring in NYC character into a blank slate modern space.

Prospective renters must meet income and household size requirements to apply. Applications must be postmarked or submitted online no later than July 3. Those who qualify can visit HousingConnect.nyc.gov to apply through the online portal or to get information about how to apply via mail.
