1 Flatbush Avenue, a 19-story, 183-unit rental building, sits at a busy intersection in Brooklyn on a wedge-like site. This corner site called for a contextual building with a large, three story, double-height retail base.  Hill West created a masonry building with glass structures pushing out as they rise above the base.  Referencing industrial language, columns rise from the storefront to the third story where a setback allows for a recessed amenity terrace.

The residential entrance is on Fulton Street with convenient nearby subway access. A two story vestibule with a grand chandelier is set apart from the retail entrances by a bronze marquis.  Some units have private terraces and all residents enjoy the rooftop amenity terrace with BBQs, a shuffleboard court and views of the Manhattan Bridge to the South.  The terrace parapets were designed with a view gap specifically to allow enjoyment of the views at the 3rd floor and rooftop.

We collaborate with our affiliated interiors firm, Whitehall to create holistic buildings that are as thoughtfully designed on the interior as they are on the exterior.
