While the city is slowly returning back to some kind of new normal, New York City's 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 overtake Extell Development's Brooklyn Point as the tallest building in Brooklyn when finished in 2022. The 73-story project will soar 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. After receiving $664 million of construction financing from Otéra Capital and Silverstein Capital Partners, JDS is moving full steam ahead and is approximately 25 floors out of the ground or 1/3 up.

Dime Savings Bank One can see how the tower's fluted design was inspired by the bank's 12 impressive red-marble Corinthian columns
Led by Michael Stern, JDS acquired $95 million worth of air rights from the iconic Junior's Restaurant just to the south in addition to development rights from the landmarked Dime Savings Bank directly next door. The 385,000-square-foot. mixed-use development will accommodate a banquet space in the restored banking hall, 120,000 square feet of retail, 425 rental apartments on the tower's lower half, and 150 condo residences with stupendous views of New York City. 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.
The bank’s marble and pink granite façade will be fused to the glass and steel tower on the rise directly behind it. While the tower’s scale was unimaginable at the time 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.
9 Dekalb Common amenity pool and deck
At the foot of the bank's Gustavino-tiled dome, residents will be treated to an outdoor deck, swimming pool, and lounge. 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.
