Long Island University is bringing a new residential building with 476 units to Downtown Brooklyn.

The Perkins Eastman-designed project at 61 Dekalb Avenue will stand 34 stories and 435 feet tall and span just under 371,000 square feet, according to filings with the Department of Buildings. Amenities will include a yoga studio, a roof terrace and an exercise room.

The property was previously owned by the city, but it transferred ownership to Long Island University in 2004, property records show.

Long Island University’s Brooklyn campus is based at 1 University Plaza in Downtown Brooklyn and spans 11 acres. It houses more than 800 students in its residence halls, according to the school’s website.

Multiple representatives from the university did not respond to requests for comment.

Recent deals in Downtown Brooklyn include Cleveland-based real estate company Stark Enterprises’ purchase of 30 Flatbush Avenue for $92 million and United American Land’s purchase of a four-story property at 44 Willoughby Street for $11 million.
