It looks like documentary filmmaker Ken Burns is moving his family into Pritzker Prize winning architect Richard Meier’s On Prospect Park. The Burns family dropped $2.75 million on the home, which is located in one of Brooklyn’s most beautiful (and active) corners — just steps away from Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, and the incredible Brooklyn Museum and Public Library.
It’s reported that the Mamma and Papa Burns spend most their time in New Hampshire, so it’s likely that the 2,107-square-foot, 3BR/2.5BA modern abode will become the love nest of his daughter Lily (who was also listed on city records) and her fiance Tony Hernandez, both of whom are producers.
All of the apartments in On Prospect feature open living plans and floor-to-ceiling windows that flood rooms with natural sunlight — very true to Meier’s style. Lily and he beau will also get to enjoy the buildings 30,000-square-foot heath club with private pool, and a residents’ lounge with kitchen. A shared rooftop deck above the 15th floor offers sweeping views of the Prospect Park, the harbor, and the skyline.
