Permits filed for Prospect Park property
Permits have been filed for a long-awaited new Prospect Park apartment building.
RKTB Architects said this week that work on One Sullivan Place (pictured top) is expected to begin “soon” with completion likely in 2020.
Developed by Sterling Town Equities, the 12-story multifamily tower design includes two 30-foot cantilevers over the adjacent low-rise buildings on either side.
Utilizing the space above the neighboring residences brings the total square footage of the project to roughly 59,000 square feet, for a total of 54 one-, two- and three-bedroom units plus shared amenities.
According to Peter Bafitis, AIA, managing principal with RKTB, the design also calls for below-grade parking for residents.
“Our design for the cantilevered portions leverages the undeveloped space above the neighboring buildings,” says Bafitis, “but with the massing set back so it does not dominate the original architecture of the existing buildings. Likewise, we have designed the facade to show sensitivity to the architectural context of this beloved New York City neighborhood and its proximity to Prospect Park across the street.”

First class Post-Office work
30 Warren, a boutique luxury condominium in Tribeca, has released a sneak peek of its precast concrete facade, an ambitious design crafted by Francois Lininger of French firm Post-Office Architects.
Lininger’s modern twist on the cast iron and stone aesthetic of Tribeca — and the work that went into creating this look with over 70 different molds from corrugated cardboard — in now coming to life.
According to Leininger, “The texture of the precast panels at 30 Warren, achieved by casting concrete over strips of corrugated cardboard laid at a 45 degree angle, creates an ever-changing facade.
“The panels’ color changes depending on the light and the position of the observer, going from light grey to merely black in the blink of an eye, registering the smallest inflection of daylight.
“The panels look at times crafty and mineral, and at times soft and light like corduroy.”
Developed by Cape Advisors the 12-story building has 23 one- and two-bedroom homes with a limited selection of three-bedroom and penthouse residences with direct elevator entry reserved for the top floors of the building.
Each residence will feature open floorplans and select residences will also feature outdoor space.
Amenities include a full-time attended lobby fitness center with yoga studio, children’s playroom, bicycle storage, package room with refrigerated storage, and laundry room.
Sales and marketing is being handled by Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group.
