A new 25,000-square-foot green space in Brooklyn is reserved for residents of a new development exclusively.

The sprawling space will be equal to roughly five basketball courts and packaged as an amenity to residents of the Front & York condo project, a 1.1 million-square-foot, mixed-use development in Dumbo, the New York Post reports.

Expected to be complete by 2021, Front & York will have two towers containing 320 rental apartments and 408 condos. Prices have not yet been announced. The project’s luxurious park will be one of the largest private green spaces in the borough.

Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates is the landscape architect and the design for the private park includes mature trees and bench seating. A rooftop swimming pool with private cabanas are also part of the project’s outdoor spaces.

CIM Group and LIVWRK are co-developing Front & York on a site at 85 Jay Street, the former Watchtower site. Kushner Companies sold its minority interests in the project a year ago. [NYP] – Mike Seemuth
