World’s tallest modular building opens in Brooklyn

The world's tallest modular building has finally opened its doors to residents in Brooklyn.



The building, located at 461 Dean St., consists of 363 modular units that are stacked together into 32 stories above the Barclays Center.



Each unit was prefabricated in steel at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and finished with appliances and countertops before being transported by truck.



Half of the apartments have been set aside for low- and middle-income residents, sparking a rush of 84,000 people applying for just 181 affordable units.



It is the first of several residential buildings to open at Pacific Park, and designed by the same architect behind the Barclays Center.



The developer tells News 12 that the modular construction reduces environmental impact in highly populated areas and could be the way of the future.
