Located at the center of brooklyn’s DUMBO neighborhood, 60 water is a 17-storey apartment building designed by lesser architecture and developed by two trees management. Situated next to the famous Brooklyn Bridge, the scheme offers impressive views across the east river towards lower Manhattan.

The building is topped with an accessible 6,000 square foot roof garden designed by James corner field operations. In developing the scheme, the design team sought to incorporate many of the same elements and plant life found on the high line, (a project they also helped landscape), including angled walkways, open viewing areas, and oversized wooden lounge chairs. The building opened just under a year ago and is currently 85% leased.
