The residential tower, One Boerum Place has topped out in Downtown Brooklyn. The slim reinforced concrete superstructure recently reached its 21-story parapet, and work is now shifting to the installation of its brick masonry façade. Designed by SLCE Architects and developed by Avery Hall Investments, Allegra Holdings, and Aria Development Group, the residential building sits on a narrow plot of land bound by Boerum Place, Red Hook Lane, and Fulton Street. The project is expected to cost around US$250 million.

Photos around the property show the edifice partially covered in scaffolding and white plastic sheets. Beneath this, the brick envelope is being installed around the tight grid of rectangular windows. When viewed from the south along Schermerhorn Street, One Boerum Place casts an angular, Flatiron-like presence on the cityscape, while its eastern profile reveals gently rounded corners that soften the visual impression.

Featured Buildings

The scheme will contain around 22,000 square feet (2,043 square meters) of ground-floor retail space and 183,000 square feet (17,001 square meters) of residential area divided among 122 units. Homes will come in one-, two-, and three-bedroom configurations. Residential amenities include a two-story fitness center, swimming pool, sauna, an entertainment lounge, a children’s playroom, a 24/7 doorman and concierge service, a parking garage, a storage room, and a landscaped roof deck with an outdoor kitchen.

The closest subways are the 2 and 3 trains at Hoyt Street; the 4 and 5 trains at Borough Hall; the A, C, and F trains at the Jay Street-MetroTech station; and the G train at the Hoyt-Schermerhorn Street station. Further east along Flatbush avenue is the DeKalb Avenue station, serviced by the B, Q, and R trains.

One Boerum Place is slated for completion within the first quarter of 2021.
