The Axel Wraps Up Construction At 550 Clinton Avenue In Clinton Hill, Brooklyn

Construction is wrapping up on The Axel, a 30-story mixed-use building at 550 Clinton Avenue on the border of Clinton Hill and Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Hope Street Capital, the 280,000-square-foot tower yields 284 apartments and 60,000 square feet of retail space in the multi-story podium. Triumph Property Group is managing leasing for the apartments and JLL is in charge of leasing the commercial space at the property, which is bound by Atlantic Avenue to the south, Clinton Avenue to the east, and Vanderbilt Avenue to the west.

At the time of our last update in February, exterior work was largely complete with some finishing touches progressing on the mechanical bulkhead, ground floor, and atop the podium. This has since concluded and the sidewalk scaffolding has begun to be removed from the perimeter of the property, revealing the completed look of the frontage.

Recent shots of the property show the staggered grid of concrete paneling and floor-to-ceiling windows in the morning sunlight.

The following photo from the intersection of Atlantic and Vanderbilt Avenues provides a good perspective of the twisting massing of the tower.

Residential amenities at The Axel include multiple conference rooms, an executive meeting room, a gaming lounge with an adjoining outdoor terrace, dedicated yoga and pilates studios, a fitness center with a terrace, a dining and entertainment room with a terrace, a golf and sports simulator, a swimming pool atop the podium, an outdoor sundeck, a rooftop skypark designed by MPFP, and outdoor kitchens with grilling stations.

The closest subways from 550 Clinton Avenue are the A and C trains at the Clinton-Washington Avenue station to the north. Nearby to the west is the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center station with access to the B, D, N, Q, R, 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains and the Long Island Railroad.
