As both architect and interior designer, Ismael Leyva Architects is the creative design force for the development’s angular exterior as well as the modern interior spaces slated for completion in fall 2014.

Developed by the Dermot Company, 66 Rockwell will rise 42 stories, totaling 337,000 s/f, including 326 rental residences.

Amenities will include a Sky Lounge on the 42nd floor with bar, fireplace and outdoor cabanas, a fitness center offering Bikram Yoga, a library, country kitchen for events, sports bar, game and golf simulator rooms.

There will be a terrace with a projector that can be used for large-screen movie viewing and barbecue workstations on a wooden deck.

Residents will also have access to storage space, bike room and a 135-car parking garage.

“Featuring a sophisticated, translucent double-height lobby and an expansive rooftop lounge illuminated from within, 66 Rockwell will shimmer in the likeness of a jewel box, complete with a glistening, angular shaped exterior and will be complementary addition to the redevelopment of Flatbush extension,” said Ismael Leyva, president of Ismael Leyva Architects.
