Dean 461 is the world’s tallest modular building. It is 32 stories tall and is in Brooklyn, New York adjacent to the Barclays Center. 90% of the 461 Dean Tower was constructed off-site and transported to the building site where cranes hoisted the prefabricated rooms to fit and lock together like puzzle pieces. It is a newly constructed 363-unit residential tower that consists of a total of 930 modular sections including hallways, living spaces, common areas, and terraces. Each section was constructed at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and shipped to the site for assembly which allowed the company to save roughly 20% on construction costs.
The apartment building offers 23 different layouts to choose from, including studios, one-bedroom apartments and two-bedroom apartments. It is not cheap to live at Dean 461; the studios start at $2,450, one-bedrooms at $3,125 and two-bedrooms at $4,750 per month. However, the high rent might be worth it because it looks like a beautiful place to live:
This picture clearly shows each module and how they are stacked one on top of the other.
In this one-bedroom apartment, the kitchen is open and leads into the living room.
The living features ceiling-high windows that gives the room a more spacious feel.
From the kitchen and living room area, the hallway leads to the bedroom.
The view from Dean 461 is spectacular. From some rooms, you can overlook the Barclay Center.
