With the arrival of The Parkline in 2016, a 24-story rental building on the eastern edge of Prospect Park, residents gained access to green in multiple forms: a green view of the park from an LEED-certified green building.
Developed by Hudson in the heart of Prospect Lefferts Gardens at 626 Flatbush Avenue, it’s easy to see why demand has been so vibrant, according to reps from Lisa Management, which is handling the leasing.
Quite simply, the amenities abound: there’s a newly renovated children’s playroom with access to a secure courtyard, 24/7 concierge, cold storage, package room, live-in super, gym, theater, workspace, four outdoor common areas, roof deck with BBQ grills, garden plots, indoor lounge, pool table, sky bar, sky kitchen, and on-site parking. Yes, there is dog grooming.
And then there’s that view: a commanding vista of the park and the rest of Brooklyn and Manhattan in the distance. Residents can reserve these views — in the sky bar and kitchen — for private parties. There’s also a slate of on-site activities for residents, from the always-popular paint and sip, and outside butcher paper dinner, as well as concerts, movie night, and others.
The interiors, designed by Marvel Architect, are highlighted by a washer/dryer in every apartment, along with stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and hardwood flooring throughout.
Of course, the neighborhood, one of the busiest corridors in Brooklyn, provides a rich palette of food choices, be it Indian, Mexican, Italian, and otherwise. There are boutiques galore, tea and yoga classes are not far away, and the park’s many charms — its meadows, bandshell and zoo — are your own.
On the ground level of the building there is a Greenlight Books and a longtime PLG cooperative daycare, Maple Street School. The Brooklyn Museum, BAM and Botanic Garden are nearby too, and you’re also just steps away from the B/Q express and 2/5 trains.
And if you’re conservation-minded, The Parkline features rainwater harvesting and an onsite cogeneration facility, reducing its reliance on the grid, so you can plug in virtually guilt-free.
