The superstructure has reached the halfway mark at the Baltic, an 11-story residential condo building rising on 4th Avenue at Baltic Street in Park Slope. The project is led by JDS Development Group, developers more recently known for towers that soar to super tall heights, such as the newly approved 9 Dekalb at the Brooklyn Dime Savings Bank.
The Baltic is one of a handful of new projects under way along this stretch of 4th Avenue, a six-mile street that resembled a grand boulevard when completed in 1900. Like Manhattan’s Park Avenue, the avenue had planted center medians that were soon replaced when the subway arrived in 1910.
VOA Architecture, a large global firm, has led the design of the project at 613 Baltic Street, utilizing a gray brick and punch window facade that ties into the materials and facade organization of nearby structures.
The entry lobby off Baltic Street will feature a large skylight opening, a garden, and connection to a terrace on the second floor amenity deck. Resident amenities will include a private resident lounge, fitness center, and a rooftop terrace that accommodates lounging, dining, and an outdoor cinema.
When completed, the Baltic will offer a total of 44 condo units with high ceilings of up to 10 feet and the customary luxury finishes.
It is one of many new apartment buildings transforming this formerly low-rise avenue, once known for its auto-repair shops, since a rezoning in 2003.
