Construction scaffolding is coming down at 1 John Street, revealing its brick and window façade. The residential building, located at the northern fringes of Brooklyn Bridge Park in DUMBO, is jointly developed by Alloy Development and Monadnock Development.
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. Windows are motorized to allow for the entire unit to open when needed. Inside the unit, large open spaces accommodate living, dining, and kitchen areas that have visual connection to each other and the exterior.
Beyond the waterfront views, the building's amenities include a gym, bike storage, and landscaped roof deck 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.
