Rendering of The Paxton at 540 Fulton Street Rendering of The Paxton at 540 Fulton Street
In recent years, the formerly 9-to-5 Downtown Brooklyn office district has transformed into a vibrant, 24-hour community. Sometimes marketed as DoBro (pardon the portmanteau), the neighborhood boasts a robust residential population, low commercial vacancy rate, and a bustling shopping corridor. Recent years have brought a building boom ushering in new hotels, offices, and residential buildings.
The transformation of the area is well encapsulated at 532-540 Fulton Street a 44-story mixed-use tower that combines eight floors of office and retail with 327 rental units above. Developed by Jenel Real Estate, the tower will steal the title of the borough's seventh-tallest building from nearby One Hanson Place, which held that distinction for 80 years. Construction topped out at 530 feet high last fall, and the striking facade designed by Marvel Architects is on the way up.

According to a recently launched website, the new building's 137,000-square-foot office component will be known as The Paxton. The office floors will span from approximately 9,700 to 13,400 square feet. They will boast 16- to 20-foot-high ceilings, communal terraces, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Renderings show a canopied entryway, a stone-clad lobby decorated with abstract art, and lively common spaces. The offices are anticipated to debut in 2020.

The tower's residential component will span floors nine through 43 and feature massive windows to make the most of panoramic skyline and harbor views. Residential amenities will include a common lounge, a resident business center, package and laundry rooms, parking for 11 bicycles, a ninth-floor gym, and a roof deck. The Downtown Brooklyn Partnership reports that 96 units will be affordable, but further details are not yet available.

Events at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, concerts and basketball games at the Barclays Center arena, and strolling and chilling at Fort Greene Park await a few blocks away. Fulton, Livingston, and Schermerhorn Streets, as well as on Atlantic Avenue, offer ample shopping spots.
