Superstructure has topped out at 561 Pacific, Adam America Real Estate’s twelve story residential condominium building in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. Designed by ODA New York, the building exterior features a brick facade with the firm’s signature eroded massing at the top penthouse floors. Punch windows are interspersed on the lower floors and become larger window wall units at the upper floors, echoing the progression of erosion in the massing.
Adam America Real Estate’s Five Six One Pacific, a 63-unit luxury condominium building designed by ODA New York at 561 Pacific St. in Brooklyn’s Boerum Hill neighborhood, is topping out at 12 floors. A collaboration between Adam America and ODA New York, Five Six One Pacific Street incorporates Japanese-inspired design elements.
“This topping out is a major milestone, and allows us to begin the work that will really give shape to ODA’s dynamic design vision in this prominent location,” said Adam America founder Omri Sachs. He added that the project will provide “a combination of timeless Japanese-inspired interiors, ample outdoor space, thoughtful layouts, luxe materials and finishes, along with modern amenities that buyers are seeking.”
Residences at Five Six One Pacific range from studio to three-bedrooms. Units start at $550,000 for studios, $875,000 for one bedrooms, $1,425,000 for two bedrooms and $2,350,000 for three-bedrooms.
A new, ODA-designed 12-story condo building hovering over the corner of 4th Avenue in Boerum Hill has topped out.
It’s located at 561 Pacific Street and bears the eponymous name of Five Six One Pacific. When completed, there will be 63 units in total. The higher the floor, the fewer units; the two highest floors have only three apartments per floor. Sales launched in April.

The modern apartment building that will replace Boerum Hill’s historic Church of the Redeemer at 24 4th Avenue is a trademark ODA design that nonetheless manages to bring a fresh look to the busy corner close to Barclays Center. Like many ODA designs, it is a variation on the theme of assemblages of boxes.
The design is trompe l’oeil: The brick appears to be a continuous 2-D surface that seems to fall away at the edges with nothing behind it. Windows are framed by shadow boxes.
Stained, not painted, garage doors made of strips of wood and ground-floor shops with big windows will likely make the building pleasant to walk by at the street level.
The rendering was first published by NY YIMBY Wednesday.
The 12-story mixed-use building will include 63 apartments as well as community and retail space. There will be underground parking for 16 cars and 32 bicycles, as well as a lounge, laundry, storage, a dog spa, and exercise facilities in the cellar, the Schedule A reveals. Outdoor recreation areas are planned for the roof, second floor and, surprisingly, the cellar.
The higher the floor, the fewer units; the two highest floors have only three apartments per floor, likely indicating fairly spacious and luxurious units.
Developer Adam America’s other projects include 251 First Street and 190 South 1st Street in Williamsburg, both also ODA projects, although quite different looking. The latter featured board-formed concrete walls.
Despite community protests, the Gothic Revival Church of the Redeemer, designed by architect Patrick C. Keely, was demolished in 2015. Built in 1866, the church was not landmarked and the diocese said it could not afford necessary repairs.

120 Java Street isn’t the only church-to-residential project YIMBY can reveal today. We also have a fresh rendering for 24 Fourth Avenue, rising just steps from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, in Boerum Hill. Designed by ODA Architecture, the 12-story, mixed-use building will contain 72 residences, ground floor retail, a community facility, and an enclosed parking structure with accommodations for 16 vehicles.
In total, the new building will comprise almost 95,000 square feet, with a total of 87,245 square feet of residential area. The ground floor commercial will measure 7,034 square feet, and the community facility will comprise 480 square feet.
The building will replace the 150-year-old Church of Redeemer, demolished in 2016. The historic, albeit non-landmarked, Gothic-revival was determined to be structurally unsound in a private forensic analysis, and was too costly for the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island to repair, as required.
The build site and property were then purchased by the Jackson Group for $20 million in 2014. Current owner Adam America Real Estate, d/b/a 561 Pacific Street Owner LLC, reportedly gained ownership in 2017 for $36 million and scaled back Jackson Group’s original plans to provide additional parking area to future occupants.
Pricing has not yet been revealed, but is anticipated to rival nearby residences in Park Slope and Boerum Hill in the one to three million dollar range with individual units averaging 1,016 square feet apiece.
