1 John Street

Construction is underway at 1 John Street, a joint venture between Alloy Development and Monadnock Development, in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn. Situated on a waterfront site at the northern end of Brooklyn Bridge Park, the project will be the second residential development located within the park, following the Pierhouse. The 42-unit, 12-story condominium will offer two, three and four bedroom apartments designed by Alloy Development, founded by architect Jared Della Valle. For the design of the exterior facade, large windows set into brick follow a gradient in size, such that the ratio of solid to glass increases towards the top of the building. Beyond the waterfront views, the building's amenities include gym, bike storage, and landscaped roofdeck with cabanas. On the first floor, the building will house an annex of the Brooklyn Children's Museum, currently located in the Crown Heights neighborhood.
1 John Street is slated for completion in 2016 and will seek LEED Gold certification.
