The Wall Street Journal reports on a new modular tower in Brooklyn that may be tallest structure of its kind anywhere:
What is believed to be the world’s tallest modular building made its debut Tuesday in Brooklyn, a 32-story rental tower constructed with prefabricated units stacked like Legos.
Forest City Ratner Cos. is now leasing the building, known as 461 Dean. It has 363 studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments.
The tower, which consists of half market-rate apartments and half for low-to-moderate-income tenants, is part of the 22-acre Pacific Park Brooklyn development which will have 6,430 apartments.
