Over the past decade or two, historic Boerum Hill has become one of Brooklyn’s most coveted neighborhoods. Recent developments in the area—such as the addition of Morris Adjmi’s 465 Pacific—offer more opportunities to live in Boerum Hill and enjoy all it has to offer. The 30 new homes, ranging from one- to five-bedrooms, will include terrace duplex homes and penthouses.
Living in Boerum Hill gives residents easy access to some of the city’s best boutiques, major shopping centers, diverse restaurants, and Brooklyn’s cultural district. Following is a taste of what Boerum Hill and its adjacent neighborhoods have to offer.
Boerum Hill — especially Atlantic Avenue — has changed drastically over the past decade. The historic brownstones and rowhouses are still there, as are the antique stores and the Middle Eastern markets, but they’ve been joined by upscale restaurants, bridal boutiques, and art galleries. Add to that the proximity to institutions like Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and it’s no wonder that demand for housing in Boerum Hill has increased.
The newest change to this upwardly mobile neighborhood is at Atlantic Avenue and Nevins Street, in a lot formerly occupied by the Atlantis Super Wash Center and its oversized, largely unused parking lot.
Architect Morris Adjmi, the man behind Williamsburg’s Wythe Hotel, has different plans for the space. Featuring a design meant to complement neighboring rowhouses, 465 Pacific will bring 30 new homes and plenty of retail space to the corner. The residences, ranging from one- to five-bedroom, will include terrace duplex homes and penthouses. The 1,300-square-foot rooftop garden features panoramic city views.
