Construction has wrapped up at 550 Vanderbilt, the first of four condo towers to be built at the Pacific Park mega development. Developed by Greenland Forest City Partners and designed by COOKFOX Architects, the 17-story tower is located at the eastern most fringe of the Pacific Park development. The massing of the building references the existing structures on Dean Street, matching their 60' street wall and confining the larger tower to the Vanderbilt and Pacific Street corner of the site.
The 17-story tower offers 278 luxury condo units ranging from studios to four-bedrooms. Residences feature wide plank white-washed hardwood flooring and 10 foot ceilings. Kitchens offer grey lacquer custom cabinetry, Carrara marble countertop and backsplash, and Miele appliances. Some units will also feature private roof terraces in addition to the larger communal roof deck.
Amenities in the building include a rooftop terrace, resident's lounge, library, children's playroom, private event space, fitness center, and courtyard.
A central courtyard designed by Thomas Balsley Associates will tie into the future 8-acre park that will flow through the larger development. Views to the courtyard have been designed into many of the amenity spaces.
