Acadia Realty Trust/Washington Square Partners and BFC Partners, developers of Downtown Brooklyn’s (DoBro) 7 DeKalb Avenue (7 DeKalb), announced today that the tower has reached 60 percent leased for its 50 market-rate residences. Additionally, the 23-story residential tower has announced the completion of its 6,000-square-foot rooftop terrace, complete with planting gardens, lawn space, and bar counter area. The development is quickly approaching full occupancy with limited one- and two-bedroom residences with private terraces on the market.

“It’s an exciting time for 7 DeKalb as the building has experienced tremendous success due to its convenient location, high-quality design, and impressive amenities,” said Aron Gooblar, Vice President at Washington Square Partners, co-developer of 7 DeKalb. “The residence offers private terraces in its one-and two-bedroom units, and we are confident this unique offering will continue to drive in tenants.”

The 6,000-square-foot rooftop terrace is equipped with lawn space, lounge and patio furniture, covered sitting areas, and a variety of greenery, including a vegetable garden with spinach, lettuce, cabbage, mustard greens, tomatoes, parsley, among many others.
