Set to launch next month, 550 Vanderbilt will be the second of 15 buildings to open at Brooklyn’s 22-acre Pacific Park mega-project. But if you can’t wait until then, COOKFOX, the architects behind the 278 sanctuary-like residences, recently sent us some sneak peek photos of the development’s new 2-bedroom model apartment for your viewing pleasure. Read on for a look inside this airy, open-concept home designed with a focus on nature and personal well-being.

As with their other projects, COOKFOX employed their biophilic design knowledge and experience for 550 Vanderbilt, paying special attention to resident health and access to green space.

In addition to sitting right on the 8-acre Pacific Park, the development will offer a number of areas where occupants can connect with nature, from a landscaped rooftop deck to private terraces and other greenery-infused environments.

550 Vanderbilt is one of 15 buildings that will be constructed as part of the Pacific Park megaproject. When complete, Pacific Park will be its own mini neighborhood. The newly completed 2-bedroom/2-bathroom model apartment showcases some of the rich finishes used throughout the rest of the building. The building will sit directly on Pacific Park. “We’re passionate about the idea that a healthy, resilient city depends on diversity and the highest quality housing and we believe that we’ve made that the heart and soul of 550,” said COOKFOX founding partner Rick Cook. The open kitchen features an oversized island and Miele appliances flanked by custom lacquer cabinetry. Many of the homes will feature outdoor space, such as this large terrace. Bathrooms are kitted out with Carrara marble vanities and flooring. The building was designed to meet LEED Silver specifications and all of the paints, fabrics and other materials used for the project are low-VOC. The apartments are also equipped with air filtration systems to ensure indoor air quality. In addition to green spaces like the 8th floor roofdeck, residents will also have access to a fitness center, a lounge with fireplace, a library, a chef’s kitchen, a children’s playroom, and even a supermarket. 550 Vanderbilt is currently 50% sold, and is expected to open in December 2016.
