TF Cornerstone revealed new renderings for 615 and 595 Dean Street, bringing new public open space, storefront retail, 800 units of mixed-income housing, and a Chelsea Piers Field House to Brooklyn’s Pacific Park.
The 72,600 s/f of new open space will create new community amenities, including a playground, lawn, and dog run.
At the base of the development, Chelsea Piers will open a family-friendly fitness and sports center with its first Field House in Brooklyn, providing youth programming to the neighborhood.
“As family-owned company, TF Cornerstone will carry its approach as long-term owners and good neighbors to Pacific Park through developing open space and family-oriented amenities,” said TF Cornerstone principal Jeremy Shell. “We look forward to working with Chelsea Piers and our new Pacific Park neighbors to deliver significant community benefits to Brooklyn.”
Designed by MNLA, the 72,600 s/f of open space will include a playground, small gathering spaces, a picnic grove, and dog run. An eastern plaza will feature a fountain that will be activated in the summer.
The open space will be anchored by a central lawn surrounded by walkways and a plantings. The pathway along the edge of the lawn will lead to a woodland garden.
Designed by Handel Architects, 615 and 595 Dean Street will include neighborhood retail on the ground floor and 455 parking spaces underground.
The buildings, set to achieve a LEED Silver sustainability rating, will include a crown of photovoltaic panels, along with landscaped green roof spaces that feature native species.
