Alloy with partner Monadnock acquired the last waterfront site in DUMBO through a public RFP process in late 2013. Situated entirely within Brooklyn Bridge Park, One John Street features spectacular bridge and river views from all 42 apartments, full service amenities, an annex for the Brooklyn Children's Museum and retail facing the park. Construction started in Summer 2014 and anticipated completion is expected Summer 2016.


One John Street was the winning response to a public RFP held by Brooklyn Bridge Park. The design's simple mass and authentic materiality is consistent with DUMBO’s Historic District.


Every apartment layout is designed to capitalize on the exceptional views offered by the site. Unlike most development sites, a careful analysis of the view corridors yields an unusual outcome: The views at the bottom are as good, if not better. Additionally, the upper portions of the building are subject to severe solar and acoustical exposures.


A gradient of window sizes afford more masonry to protect the interiors at the upper floors, while on the lower floors larger windows offer broader views to the water and Park. The ground floor contains a restaurant, lobby and annex to the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, open up to the public and surrounding park.
