Church of the Redeemer-Replacing Condo Building in Boerum Hill Tops Out


A new, ODA-designed 12-story condo building hovering over the corner of 4th Avenue in Boerum Hill has topped out.

It’s located at 561 Pacific Street and bears the eponymous name of Five Six One Pacific. The site was formerly home to the historic Church of the Redeemer.

A recent visit revealed work on the facade had yet to begin. Workers were on site, and construction fencing surrounds the development.

When completed, there will be 63 units in total. The higher the floor, the fewer units; the two highest floors have only three apartments per floor. Sales launched in April.

Parking for 16 cars will be underground, along with bicycle storage, exercise rooms and a tenant lounge. Retail will be on the ground floor (measuring 7,034 square feet) along with a community facility. Another tenant recreation area will be on the second floor, with another on the roof that has a capacity of 153 people.

Christian Bailey of ODA is the architect of record. Renderings show the building’s look will follow a familiar ODA template of stacked boxes with irregularly sized windows, framed by window boxes.

Adam America is the developer. They purchased the site in 2017 for $36 million.

Despite community protests, the Gothic Revival Church of the Redeemer, designed by architect Patrick C. Keely, was demolished in 2015. Built in 1866, the church was not landmarked and the diocese said it could not afford necessary repairs.
