One Prospect Park West, the first residential development designed by Workstead, has officially launched sales. Built in 1925 by the Knights of Columbus, the 10-story Classical Revival building overlooks Grand Army Plaza and Prospect Park and, for nearly 40 years, served as a clubhouse and hotspot for society events in Park Slope, one of Brooklyn’s most affluent neighborhoods.
The lavish club featured a ballroom, hotel rooms for members and guests, a restaurant, a bowling alley, a billiards’ hall, an indoor swimming pool, club rooms and council chambers. Now, developer Sugar Hill Capital Partners is carefully renovating and converting the building into a rare residential condominium located directly on Prospect Park, with interiors by Workstead.
The building offers 64 residences with over 40 unique floor plans featuring locally-sourced design details that create the perfect balance between pre-war and modern design. These hallmarks include arched entryways, hand-laid reclaimed pinewood flooring, custom crown molding, custom Waterworks fixtures and large windows framing views of Prospect Park and the New York City skyline.
One Prospect Park West will also feature Workstead’s new line of custom lighting, the Park Collection, which has been inspired by the development. Developed by Sugar Hill Capital Partners, One Prospect Park West is situated directly on Prospect Park, offering true park living and located just steps from world-class cultural attractions such as the Brooklyn Public Library, Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Botanical Garden.
