Welcome to 550 Vanderbilt, the gateway to a new community at Pacific Park.
550 Vanderbilt revitalizes everyday living with contemporary ease and wellness. COOKFOX’s vision defines new luxury living in Brooklyn.
Founded by Rick Cook, the award-winning architecture firm COOKFOX utilized Biophilic Design principles throughout the building. An innovative way to create spaces with a deep and fundamental connection to nature, Biophilic Design aims to connect the residents of 550 Vanderbilt to the natural world for enhanced creativity, clarity of thought, and improved well being. Natural materials like chamfered precast and flowering planters surround the expansive windows, while white Carrara marble in the interiors complement the wood flooring. Utilizing natural elements inside and out, each home’s natural elements are intended to enhance the health and happiness of its residents.
Details transform a house into a home. Drawing upon the welcoming warmth of nature, COOKFOX offers unexpected touches at every turn — wood infill screens, organic patterned screens, and flowering planters frame generous windows.
Spectacular vistas from each home reveal a vibrant landscape that remains familiar, even as it delights and surprises each day. You’ll take in views of the Manhattan skyline, Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, and historic Brooklyn. Sit back and watch the seasons change as the story of Brooklyn unfolds below.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
We’re going for a Silver LEED rating. LEED-certified buildings enhance the health and wellness of residents and communities, and are resource-efficient: they use less water and energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and save money.
At 550 Vanderbilt, natural and sustainable materials have been used wherever possible; finishes, paints, and fabrics meet low volatile organic compounds (VOC) standards and interior air quality is vastly improved through sophisticated air filtration systems. FSC-certified wood, natural stone, and sustainable materials reduce the building’s impact on the environment. These principles are carried through to the building’s exterior as well, through significant planted space, which will reduce the urban heat island effect and encourage storm-water retention.
