MGPP Urban Design Principles


Concentrate high density, height & commercial uses at western end of project
site to reflect higher density commercial & residential uses of Downtown Brooklyn.

Maximize density adjacent to the Transportation Hub.


Create an undulating skyline with buildings of varying heights along Atlantic Avenue.
Create a visual relationship between B1, Site 5 & the Williamsburg Savings
Bank Building.
Enliven the Atlantic Avenue & Flatbush Avenue intersection.
Provide visual & physical connections between indoor activity & street life.
