Façade Installation Underway At 11-Story Baltic Park Slope At 613 Baltic Street

It has been about five-and-a-half months since we checked in on JDS Development Group’s new endeavor at 613 Baltic Street, in Park Slope. Back then, it had just topped out. Now, behind scaffolding, façade installation is underway at every level of the 11-story building.


Dubbed Baltic Park Slope, the 119-foot-tall building is the product of Flatiron District-based VOA Architecture. Construction progress can be seen thanks to photos taken by Tectonic.

The project’s stats have changed since YIMBY’s July 2016 report. According to a new building permit issued in November, it will encompass 64,391 square feet, down from 83,154 square feet. Forty-three residential units, one fewer than before, would be spread across 59,073 square feet, which works out to an average of over 1,373 square feet per unit. Listings include a 689-square-foot one-bedroom and a 1,356-square-foot three-bedroom.

There will also be a 3,157-square-foot retail space and 2,163-square-foot community center on the first floor.

The amenities currently listed on the Schedule A include a roof terrace, space for 22 bicycles, parking for 10 automobiles, an outdoor garden on the first floor, an exercise room and both indoor and outdoor lounges on the second floor.

The building is a six-minute walk from the Union Street Station on the R train. The 2 and 3 trains at Bergen Street, and the B, N, Q, R, 4, and 5 trains (as well as the 2 and 3 trains) at Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center, aren’t much farther. Completion by the end of 2017 is a reasonable expectation.

Construction on 111 West 57th Street has reached its first setback on the 45th floor. SHoP Architect’s design for the project features 12 setbacks, with a transparent glass curtain on the northern and southern facades, and terracotta cladding and bronze latticework on the eastern and western facades. The terracotta façade is installed up to the 33rd floor, and already proving to interact with the sun to create interesting shadows and reflections of light. In order to minimize the movement and vibrations of the tower, an 800-ton tuned mass damper will top off the project. The damper at 111 West 57th Street weighs the equivalent of three and a half Statues of Liberties, making its mark as the heaviest in the world. The 1,428-foot tower will house 60 condominiums, with prices ranging between $15.5 million and $59 million.
