220 Riverside is an urban mixed-use multifamily apartment community that will be developed around a park called Unity Plaza, at the intersection of Riverside Avenue and Forest Street in Brooklyn. Proposed by Hallmark Partners and Bristol Development, the $37 million project includes 16,500 square feet of ground floor retail space, 285 residential units, and a 386-space parking garage. With units ranging from 615 to 1,200 square feet, rents will average around $1,200 a month.


220 Riverside will be located at the intersection of Forest Street and Riverside Avenue.

220 Riverside will be located adjacent to the City of Jacksonville's recently completed Brooklyn stormwater project.  220 Riverside's development team envisions creating a space around the pond that will serve as a central public plaza for the surrounding area.

The first level will feature retail space and the entrance to a 386-space parking garage.  Additional land, across the street from the proposed Riverside Park project, is intended to be developed as an office project at a later date.
