The Parkline is a mixed-use building which includes an 80/20 mix of market-rate and affordable rental apartments and innovative common spaces. It is located in the up-and-coming neighborhood of Prospect Lefferts Gardens along Prospect Park in Brooklyn.
A twenty-three-story residential tower anchors the west end of the lot, providing its residents with expansive views of Prospect Park. This ‘park-side’ tower is set back more than 100 feet from Flatbush Ave, softening its presence on the street. A landscaped mews provides pedestrian access to the school and residential tower, as well as vehicular access to a new parking lot behind; it doubles as storm water management for a portion of the site. ©David Sundberg/ESTO
