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.
