Brooklyn, NY Avdoo & Partners Development celebrated the topping out of Saint Marks Place, a 100-residence condominium project in the Boerum Hill neighborhood. With a comprehensive design vision by INC Architecture & Design, a series of lush, landscaped gardens by Terrain, and a 360° holistic wellness and fitness environment curated by The Wright Fit, Saint Marks Place combines modern design intelligence with a historic sense of place. The project is located at 58 Saint Marks Pl.
Topping out 125 ft. tall with 12 floors, Saint Marks Place is designed with an intentional nod to the neighborhood that surrounds it. The building echoes the scale of the brownstones nearby, with an elevated, sculpted façade inspired by the proportions of the classic brownstone exterior. The façade is modernized by 8,000 bold, vertical modules in custom Agrob Buchtal manufactured terra cotta, a classic component of New York architecture. The building boasts 338 windows, which were thoughtfully designed to emphasize natural light and access to fresh air.
19,000 s/f of full-service amenities at Saint Marks Place are planned around an outdoor Central Garden–designed by Terrain and featuring 55 species of plants and trees–with natural light and access to outdoor space. Saint Marks Place will offer 39 residence types ranging from studios to four-bedrooms. Nearly 80% of all residences have private outdoor space.
“Our cities are on the verge of an unprecedented rebirth,” said Adam Rolston, partner of INC Architecture & Design. “How we live, work and play in the urban environment will be transformed. In addition to boasting beautiful private residences with a connection to the natural light and outdoors we all crave, Saint Marks Place will constitute a village within a borough that can support meaningful social connections to enhance both the physical and emotional health of a new kind of urban life.”
“The way people live is changing, especially in New York City,” said Shlomi Avdoo of Avdoo & Partners Development. “Saint Marks Place will present a better way to live, focusing on the essentials in a home. Direct access to nature, light and fresh air; health, wellness and community-oriented amenities, and a location that makes life easy and convenient, are fundamental to the Brooklyn lifestyle.”
A 4,000 s/f project gallery with a 2,000 s/f garden located at 84 Saint Marks Place is currently welcoming exclusive previews to experience the vision for the development. The sales gallery includes an added layer of context and understanding about the pivotal 4th Ave. corridor where 58 Saint Marks Place is located and its current evolution and beautification. The area is a crossroads of popular Brooklyn neighborhoods and with several city initiatives in place, will soon become one of the most sought after and beautiful locales in the city.
