Currently the tallest building in Brooklyn, Hub is a new 55-story skyscraper at the nexus of Boerum Hill, Fort Greene, Park Slope, and Downtown Brooklyn. The building comprises a soaring residential tower with 750 apartments, 150 of which are affordable units. Conceived as an extension of your home, Hub’s 40,000 square feet of amenities foster a social lifestyle where residents can relax, eat, work, socialize, and play.
Woven into the vibrant Downtown Brooklyn Cultural District, Caesura is a 12-story mixed-use building, whose design responds in scale and materiality to the historic Brooklyn Academy of Music Opera House across the street, while playing off the much taller, glassier high-rise buildings on surrounding sites. Anchoring a key corner of Lafayette Avenue and Ashland Place – just across from the BAM Opera House – Caesura provides a mix of 123 affordable and market-rate apartments and will be home to the Center for Fiction and rehearsal studios for the Mark Morris Dance Center.
