While New York City has only just fully reopened businesses like gyms, restaurants, and stores, the real estate and construction industries have barely taken a break. A quick visit to rapidly growing Downtown Brooklyn shows that 9 Dekalb Avenue is making significant headway towards making the fuggedaboutit borough's skyline much more memorable.

Developed by JDS Development and designed by SHoP Architects, 9 DeKalb will ultimately soar 73 stories and 1,099 feet high to its rooftop parapet and will become the first supertall (a skyscraper reaching 300 meters /984 feet or more) outside of Manhattan in the tristate region upon completion (estimated for 2022). After acquiring $95 million worth of air rights from the iconic Junior's Restaurant and development rights from the landmarked Dime Savings Bank, as well as receiving $664 million of construction financing from Otéra Capital and Silverstein Capital Partners, JDS is moving full steam ahead. The building is more than halfway up, and will soon overtake Extell Development's Brooklyn Point as the tallest building in Brooklyn.

Dime Savings Bank One can see how the tower's fluted design was inspired by the bank's 12 impressive red-marble Corinthian columns

While the tower’s scale was unimaginable at the time the landmarked Dime Savings Bank was built, elements of its rich architectural history have made it into the design by SHoP Architects. The hexagonal motif seen in the bank’s coffered ceilings and ornate tile is expressed in the new structure. Moreover, the elegant setbacks are reminiscent of the Art Deco designs on the rise when the bank was originally built. Installation of the bronze, stainless steel, and stone facade began at the end of 2020, and the bank’s marble and pink granite façade will be fused to the glass and steel tower on the rise directly behind it.
Upon completion, the 385,000-square-foot mixed-use development will accommodate retail and office space, a commercial gym, and a total of 575 apartments, 20 percent of which will be affordable rentals, comprising 425 rentals and 150 condos. There will be no more than six apartments per floor above level 40. The uppermost residence will be a full-floor penthouse on the 71st floor.

9 Dekalb Common amenity pool and deck
At the foot of the bank's Gustavino-tiled dome, residents will be treated to a landscaped outdoor deck with swimming pool, lounge areas, BBQ pits, a Great Lawn, and a north-facing hot tub that promises spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline. Other amenities will include 82 parking spaces, a pair of fitness centers, an indoor pool, and several lounge spaces. Like its sister skyscraper Brooklyn Point, the building's roof will have an attenuated mass dampener to minimize building sway/torque, keeping residents comfortable and building components airtight for decades to come. Over the next several months, New Yorkers will begin to see the slender concrete frame climb into viewpoints, eventually taking its place as the pinnacling skyscraper of the Brooklyn skyline.
