Downtown Brooklyn touts Manhattan skyline views, but it's shaping up quite a skyline of its own Downtown Brooklyn touts Manhattan skyline views, but it's shaping up quite a skyline of its own
Almost exactly sixteen years to the day have passed since Downtown Brooklyn was rezoned for greater residential development, and the once-industrial area has given way to an increasingly coveted residential one. Between its easy access to Manhattan, close proximity to popular Brooklyn neighborhoods, and increased retail, dining, and entertainment opportunities, it would seem everyone - developers, designers, residents - wants to be a part of it.

The building boom shows no sign of slowing down. If anything, the real estate community is literally thinking bigger so as to keep up with increased office, educational, and retail demand that comes with residential. Some buildings are dramatic new additions to the skyline, others are still but a twinkle in the developer's eye, and all promise to reshape the local landscape.

No Brooklyn landmarks were demolished to make way for this supertall. On the contrary, the Brooklyn Dime Savings Bank is being restored and reimagined as the entrance to what will be the tallest building in Brooklyn, a 73-story tower rising behind it. The apartments above will be a mix of rentals and condos, and all residents will have access to a rooftop lounge and pool wrapping around the Guastavino dome. Foundation work began in the spring, and completion is estimated for 2022.

An International Style-bank building at 200 Montague has given way to the construction of a 20-story, a 121-unit residential project being developed by Midtown Equities and designed by Beyer Blinder Belle. After purchasing the HSBC Bank for $25 million in 2007, the developer is moving forward with plans to build a market-rate rental building with 26 studios, 57 one-bedrooms, 26 two-bedrooms, and 12 three-bedroom apartments. Amenities are to include a landscaped rooftop terrace, rear yard terraces, fitness and yoga rooms, resident lounge space, children’s playroom, bicycle storage, communal laundry, and a pet wash.

The site is a stone's throw from Borough Hall and Cadman Plaza Park and lies within the Borough Hall Skyscraper Historic District. As such, the design required the approval of the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The blocky massing is distinguished by an elegant, albeit brooding bronze-toned detailing offset by reinforced concrete piers. Our last visit to the site shows that excavation work is well underway and delivery should be expected sometime in 2022.

All residents will have access to amenities like a lounge, party room, children's playroom, bike room, parking for 87 vehicles, a fitness center, a 15th-story pool, and a roof deck. A winter 2022 completion date was posted on the construction fence, but it remains to be seen whether it will meet that - the site has not been deemed essential construction.

Between the pursuit of LEED and Passive House certification, there is no shortage of ways that New York builders can show their commitment to the environment. However, as work begins on a massive new project, Alloy Development is set to go one step further and, in the words of co-founder and CEO Jared Della Valle, "make this the most sustainable block in Downtown Brooklyn." To that end, the residential component of 100 Flatbush Avenue will be 100 percent electric, or fossil fuel independent, in a first for New York buildings. Moreover, the two public schools at the base, an elementary school and a new Khalil Gibran International Academy high school, will be designed to meet Passive House standards. Additional components will include 100,000 square feet of office space and 30,000 square feet of retail space. Completion is estimated for 2023.

Until 2019, 141 Willoughby Street was occupied by the three-story Institute of Design and Construction. That building is now demolished, and the site is cleared and ready for excavation. At one time, it looked like a mixed-use building featuring retail, office space, student housing, and residential units was going to rise on the site. However, newly revealed renderings indicate that a purely commercial tower may be in the works instead.

FXCollaborative, the building's architect, has signed on for 40,000 square feet of space in the new building. Like all office tenants, it will enjoy access to amenity space including outdoor terraces and an adjacent underground parking facility. Construction topped out last year, and significant progress has been made on its glass and brick curtain wall.

291 Livingston Street
Eli Karp’s Hello Living is wrapping up construction on a 22-story, 103-key hotel at 291 Livingston Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by Gene Kaufman Architects, the ground floor will have a beer garden and the lot-line wall is rendered to feature an interesting art installation.

When hospitality developer GFI Development Company ("GFI") transformed the Breslin Hotel into Ace Hotel New York, the project was widely credited with turning NoMad into one of Manhattan's hottest neighborhoods. A joint venture between GFI and GB Lodging undoubtedly hoped to do the same by bringing an Ace Hotel outpost to 252 Schermerhorn Street (also known as 61 Bond Street), but a Downtown Brooklyn building boom took hold in the years of construction delays since permits were first filed. As the 13-story, 285-room luxury hotel nears completion, it will prove to be a natural addition to a beautiful and bustling Brooklyn neighborhood.

DUMBO-based designer/developer Tankhouse closed on the purchase of a corner development site at 219 Jay Street and Chapel Street for $12.5 million. The lot is currently home to a three-story, 9,800-square-foot building, but offers an additional 37,549 square feet of buildable square feet. Real Estate Weekly reported the sale and noted that the site offers opportunity zone eligible tax benefits.

Tankhouse's website posted preliminary sketches of a new residential tower with several setbacks and private terraces at the site. As permits have not yet been filed, it is not clear how many units the building will have, amenities, or whether it will be a rental or a condo.

On Tuesday, June 23, the Landmarks Preservation Commission ("Landmarks") will hear a proposal for a new, state-of-the-art, 20,000-square-foot facility for the Brooklyn Music School (BMS) with 120 residential units on top. The planned building will rise 24 stories and 285 feet high on a vacant lot behind One Hanson Place and feature a brick and terra cotta skin with a gradiating facade gradually fading from light to dark.

The project will double BMS's instructional space, expand the headquarters, and create a smooth transition between the tower and the Hanson Place Central United Church on adjacent lots. Above the school, there will be one floor of amenities and 21 floors of apartments. Thirty percent of units have been allocated for moderate-income affordable apartments, and the remainder will be market-rate condos.

On June 30, a deal for approximately $25 million of land and air rights closed between the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) and a pair of frequent collaborators, Joy Construction and Maddd Equities. The team's purchase comprised a 6,000-square-foot lot on Myrtle Avenue for $16.6 million and about 84,000 square feet of air rights at Myrtle Avenue, 120 Navy Walk, 67-73 Prince St. and 202-208 Tillary St. for $8.25 million. The purchase was made in aid of the companies' planned residential project centered at 202 Tillary Street, originally set to measure 235,000 square feet but now able to expand to 400,000 square feet. A residential project with 25% affordable units is said to be in the works.

111 Willoughby Street is well situated between Bridge and Duffy Streets near City Point, Cadman Plaza and Fort Greene Parks, popular restaurants and shops, and several subway lines. It is also near New York City College of Technology and NYU's Tandon School of Engineering, which may be why it was the owner's desire for student housing to be developed at the site. Recently filed permits call for about a community facility and about 1,800 square feet of retail space at grade level, a second-floor restaurant, a third-floor church, and 220 apartments starting on the seventh floor. Residential amenities will include a bike room, mail and package room, outdoor terrace, study lounge, and roof deck.

Perhaps no building encapsulates Downtown Brooklyn's renaissance better than the nearly 80-story tower proposed for 625 Fulton Street: It calls for over 50,000 square feet of retail space, 739,000 square feet of office space, an 82,500-square-foot elementary school, and nearly 844,000 square feet of residential space. A quarter of the proposed 902 units would be permanently affordable. If the upzoning is approved, construction would begin in 2020 with completion estimated for 2023.
