The 37-story tower at 203 Jay Street is the firm’s first tower in North America. Located in the Brooklyn borough of New York, the large-scale, mixed-use development resides at the intersection of some of its fastest growing neighborhoods: Brooklyn Heights, DUMBO, and Downtown Brooklyn. Totaling a full 355,000 square feet, the building will be comprised of 270 units varying from studios to three-bedroom units that will open in the Spring of 2018.
Tenants will have access to retail, commercial and below-grade parking areas. From the private vehicular drop-off area, residents can access the building from a dedicated entrance to the lobby, which also connects to a public plaza designed by SCAPE Landscape Architects. Some will also have personal terraces—a luxury for such a dense city—and rooftop access.
The interior units were stacked so that every tenant can get the best possible view of the teeming Manhattan skyline. On the exterior, the patterned façade maintains occupants’ privacy from neighboring buildings and pedestrians. While living and dining areas have floor-to-ceiling windows, the bedrooms and bathrooms are covered up.
