Editor’s note: A previous version of this post included renderings and details that do not represent the final project and have been removed.

The second phase of Fortis Property Group’s five-building project in Cobble Hill will continue into the new year, with the complex’s tallest tower expected to enter the market soon. 2 River Park, located at 91 Pacific Street, will top out at 28 stories, 475 feet tall. In addition to being the tallest at River Park, the condo tower will become the tallest in South Brooklyn, which contains Boerum Hill, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Gowanus, Park Slope, and Red Hook.

The River Park project spans nearly one million square feet, replacing the former Long Island College Hospital Site. Each of the five residences was designed by a different architect, with 2 River Park by Hill West Architects. Whitehall Interiors are handling the design of the units.

As permits filed with the city note, apartments begin on the third floor with a maximum of six units per floor. Starting on the 20th floor, there will be just two apartments per floor and on the 28th floor, a penthouse takes the entire level.

Amenities include a fitness center, indoor pool, spa with private treatment rooms, and a porte cochère. Most notably is the building’s third-level sky park, offering skyline views and plenty of space for recreational activities. According to CityRealty, an offering plan submitted last year listed a $221 million sell out, making the average condo price around $2.1 million.

Phase one of River Park included sales at Polhemus Residences and Townhouses, which are nearly 100 percent sold, and in October, 5 River Park, which contains 25 units, launched sales, with units starting at $1.15 million. The FXCollaborative-designed 1 River Park, a tower offering 48 units, will also hit the market this year

Phase three includes the sales launch at the project’s final two buildings, 3 River Park and 4 River Park sometime in 2020 or 2021.
