New Meier masterpiece On Prospect Park.

Acclaimed master architect, Richard Meier, brings his design imprint to Brooklyn with On Prospect Park, a stunning, glass-walled, 15-story luxury residential condominium located at 1 Grand Army Plaza.

Situated on Brooklyn's historic Grand Army Plaza steps from Prospect Park, this spectacular site provides the perfect setting for Meier's first Brooklyn design project. Overlooking the Soldiers' and Sailors' Memorial Arch, On Prospect Park affords breathtaking views of a classic Brooklyn neighborhood.

A Distinctive Properties project, Richard Meier On Prospect Park is part of the group of luxury residential properties designed by world renowned architects being developed by SDS Procida Development Group headed by Louis V. Greco Jr. and Mario Procida in conjunction with Sheldon Gordon of Gordon Group Holdings.

Soon to be deemed Brooklyn's premiere residence, 1 Grand Army Plaza is a highly designed building of sleek, shimmering glass and aluminum curtain wall.

114 luxury condominium residences feature floor-to-ceiling glass with most homes enjoying unparalleled panoramic views that sweep across Prospect Park or feature the stunning span from Brooklyn to Manhattan, from the Verrazano Bridge to Manhattan's Chrysler and Empire State buildings.

Many residences include large, private balconies or generous outdoor terraces that beautifully blend interior and exterior space, a design hallmark of Meier where natural light infuses the residential environment.

The homes of 1 Grand Army Plaza are graciously proportioned with extensive 4" rift and quartered oak plank flooring. Masterfully crafted interiors feature an open kitchen design with Richard Meier selected top-of-the-line Sub-Zero, Gaggenau and Miele appliances seamlessly integrated into the millwork.

Bathrooms are highlighted by Richard Meier custom-designed cabinetry, elegantly lit mirrors, white solid surface countertops and sinks.

Residences enjoy the luxury of outdoor space with most featuring translucent, glass balconies and rich Ipe hardwood decks. Expansive, Jet Mist paved terraces grace 8th floor residences where the building's set back design creates monumental outdoor entertainment and relaxation spaces. Just below, 7th floor homes are spacious, generously proportioned, family-sized three bedroom residences ranging up to 2,418 s/f in size, most with outdoor balconies that expand the living space even further.

Seven exceptional penthouses crown Richard Meier On Prospect Park ranging in size from 1,243 s/f to a spectacularly dimensioned 3,408 s/f home.

The penthouses are a mix of five duplex and two simplex residences with several featuring unrivaled 360 degree views.

Amenities include 24-hour doorman, residents' concierge service and onsite parking with direct, internal access, and residents' membership in the adjacent 30,000 s/f fitness center operated by Eastern Athletics.

Convenience extends into the homes with advanced residential technology and features integrated into the building infrastructure:

Intellikey entry door hardware, and Home Integrated Technology Network (HITN) accommodate the needs of modern living. Careful consideration to storage needs has been given with generous on-site storage space available for each residence.

With construction completion scheduled for Fall 2008, Richard Meier On Prospect Park residence brings the distinction of America's unrivaled master of modern architectural design into Brooklyn, the most distinct and iconic of American neighborhoods.
