This month, 6sqft featured Dattner Architects’ The Hub, Brooklyn’s tallest tower. Credited with the best amenities in the borough, each common space was conceived as an extension of your home. The buildings’ 40,000 square feet of amenity programs foster a social lifestyle where tenants can relax, eat, work, socialize, and play.
The main amenity space centers around a “grand foyer” lounge with a variety of seating areas that offer unobstructed views to a pool, exercise gym, and club room. Designed as a collaborative and informal work space, the club room accommodates a variety of working styles whether it’s alone by the fireplace or communally at a kitchen island with neighbors. The curtain wall-enclosed pool area features a 75-foot lap pool with lounge seating at the perimeter. One of the most impressive design elements is how the pool opens to the landscaped terrace with grilling cabanas, an outdoor movie screening area, and an outdoor fitness space. Additional indoor communal spaces include a movie theater, library, and social rooms.
The Hub’s 53rd floor features a sky lounge and terrace with breathtaking panoramic views. All spaces, from the lower club floors to the upper sky lounge, expose sweeping views, while allowing plenty of natural light. Located at the nexus of five Brooklyn neighborhoods with easy access to Brooklyn’s vibrant cultural centers, restaurants, parks, and transportation, The Hub is quickly becoming a new noteworthy addition.
