The two 19-story towers will face Pierrepont and Montague Streets in the Brooklyn Heights section of Brooklyn.

Santander Bank is providing the construction financing, with JD Capital, a public asset investment and advisory firm based in China, providing additional equity. JD Capital is being advised by Dallas-based L&B Realty Advisors, which has $8.5 billion in assets under management.

The project will include a number of relatively large, family-oriented units; a floor of dedicated amenities; and about 6,000 square feet of ground floor retail with street frontage on both Montague and Pierrepont. Santander is leasing the Montague side of the project for a bank branch.

Construction of The Pierrepont is expected to be completed in 24 months. The building will include sustainable features that exceed Enterprise Green Communities certification requirements.
