Located on the corner of Prospect Park and Brooklyn’s historic Grand Army Plaza in Park Slope, One Prospect Park West is home to 64 luxury residences within a former Knights of Columbus clubhouse dating back to 1925. Developer Sugar Hill Capital Partners helmed the transformation of the Classic Revival-style building, tapping Brooklyn-based AD100 design studio Workstead to meticulously craft the interiors and architecture firm ODA to envision the landscaped private rooftop meadow that overlooks Manhattan and Prospect Park. The residences range from one-bedroom, one-bathrooms spanning 1,000 square feet, to four-bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms that encompass 3,175 square feet of space.

The redevelopment of the former Knights of Columbus clubhouse sought to preserve the original details of the building while incorporating elements of modern luxury. Spaces throughout One Prospect Park West feature curved arch details and wall moldings that hark back to the building’s origins, while its facade maintains the elegance and symmetry associated with Classic Revival architecture.
With its laid-back vibe, historic brownstones, and family-friendly atmosphere, Park Slope is regarded as one of Brooklyn’s most desirable neighborhoods. Its crown jewel is Prospect Park, offering 526 acres of green space, which includes a zoo, a band shell, an Audubon Center, and dozens of recreational facilities. Much of the neighborhood is located within the Park Slope Historic District and welcomes a wide range of local restaurants, bars, and boutique shops. Residents enjoy its pedestrian-friendly sidewalks, sense of community, and proximity to cultural centers like the Brooklyn Public Library, Brooklyn Conservatory, and Brooklyn Academy of Music. Park Slope also boasts some celebrity inhabitants, including actors Patrick Stewart, Steve Buscemi, and John Turturro, who have called the neighborhood home for several years.
Residences feature ceilings that soar up to 13 feet high, reclaimed heartwood pine floors, and oversized windows with framing views of the neighborhood and New York City skyline. Workstead created custom cream lacquer cabinetry in the kitchens, along with porcelain and painted metal cabinetry pills, accompanied by Honed Estremoz marble countertops and appliances by Sub-Zero. Bathrooms are complete with Park II opal glass and brushed aluminum sconces with hewn brass accents, Bianco Dolomiti marble tile walls, custom vanities with Calacatta Nero carved marble countertops, and integrated medicine cabinets. Select residences come with private terraces and wet or dry bars.
The amenity package at One Prospect Park West offers all of the modern conveniences that residents expect from luxury developments. Among them are a children’s playroom, fitness and movement studios; basketball court, and storage spaces. There is a library, as well as spa and wellness perks, including a steam room, that emphasize calmness and tranquility while a private rooftop meadow with an apple orchard provides opportunities for communal gathering while overlooking the city’s skyline.

A restored Gilded Age icon occupying a block of prime Upper West Side real estate, The Astor offers the opportunity to inhabit a piece of New York history. Stepping inside is like stepping back into time—to when this stretch of Broadway was still relatively undeveloped, and everything felt taller, larger, and grander. Spaces existed, says design lead Aaron Dussair of Pembrooke & Ives, “that would be difficult to conceive of today.” When you combine these classic proportions and original details with, say, high-speed Wi-Fi and Miele appliances, you have something truly unique.
