February 9, 2023
Bond With Brooklyn – a Brooklyn-centric initiative for community building spearheaded by leading real estate developer TF Cornerstone – in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance and Lakeside Brooklyn, announced a free community skate event at the LeFrak Center at Lakeside in Prospect Park. On Saturday, March 18, from 1 – 9pm, guests of the Bond With Brooklyn ice skating event will enjoy free admission, rentals, hot chocolate and a photo booth.
Register in advance for tickets to this free event (please note that walk up guests will also be honored). Tickets for the event are first-come, first-serve and are rain or shine. Capacity is limited.
“We are excited to invite members of the Brooklyn community to enjoy a day of ice skating fun. The community driven initiative known as Bond With Brooklyn began in 2017 with the opening of our first Brooklyn rental, 33 Bond Street. As we continue to expand the portfolio within Brooklyn, as do our efforts through Bond With Brooklyn and the imminent opening of our newest Brooklyn rental, 595 Dean Street. It is our mission to integrate ourselves into the local community through programs and events that give back,” said Zoe Elghanayan of TF Cornerstone.
Lakeside is the largest and most ambitious project in Prospect Park since its creation nearly 150 years ago. Spanning 26 acres, the $74 million restoration by the Prospect Park Alliance transformed the southeast corner of the Park into a popular scenic and recreational destination. Lakeside offers year-round seasonal activities, dining, and special events. From ice skating to boats and bikes, guests and visitors of Lakeside enjoy indoor and outdoor seating set against a panoramic view of the two rinks and beautiful Prospect Park Lake, as well as a distinctive menu at the classic Bluestone Lakeside Cafe & Bar with a full spectrum of dining options.
“Community has always been at the heart of the Prospect Park Alliance, and we couldn’t think of a better partner to bring such a fun event to life for our neighbors than TF Cornerstone, through its Bond With Brooklyn initiative,” said Morgan Monaco, president of Prospect Park Alliance. “We look forward to new and familiar faces on March 18, and hope to host more of these fun events with Bond With Brooklyn in the near future.”
This spring, TFC will open 595 Dean Street in Prospect Heights, a mixed-use two-tower development designed by Handel Architects. Anchored by nearly 60,000 square feet of public park space designed by Matthews Nielsen Landscape Architects (MNLA), as well as a state of the art Chelsea Piers Field House; 595 Dean Street will offer a total of 798 Studio, one- and two-bedroom rental units. Of the 798 rental units, 240 studio, one-, and two-bedroom units will be offered to middle income households through the housing lottery on NYC Housing Connect. The lottery for affordable units at 595 Dean Street will open to applications after the building’s opening this spring.
In celebration of TF Cornerstone’s support for developing and driving a more Brooklyn-centric focus across its portfolio; media, development progress and Brooklyn updates will be highlighted on the Instagram @BondWithBrooklyn.
