Event Details

One John Street was the winning response to a public RFP held by Brooklyn Bridge Park. The design's simple mass and authentic materiality is consistent with the DUMBO Historic District. Every apartment layout is designed to capitalize on the exceptional views offered by the site. Unlike most development sites, a careful analysis of the view corridors yields an unusual outcome: the views at the bottom are as good, if not better. Additionally, the upper portions of the building are subject to severe solar and acoustical exposures. A gradient of window sizes afford more masonry to protect the interiors at the upper floors, while on the lower floors larger windows offer broader views to the water and park. The ground floor contains a restaurant, lobby, and annex to the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, and opens up to the public and surrounding park.
