In April, developer Tishman Speyer unveiled renderings of their 52-story condo going up at 11 Hoyt Street in Downtown Brooklyn. In recent weeks, construction has moved above street level — reaching the fourth floor this past weekend. Designed by the Chicago-based architect Jeanne Gang, the tower will be her firm's first skyscraper in the city. The MacArthur Fellow's other NYC commissions include the 'Solar Carve Tower' next to the High Line and a new wing for the American Museum of Natural History.

A full rendering of the project has yet to be released, but a revised zoning diagram submitted to the Department of Buildings gives us a better idea of the site organization. The tower ascends as a simple slab seemingly clad in stainless steel. It will rest upon a broad single-story podium, a la Lever House, and will have a pair of open-air circular cutouts, one of which frames a porte-cochère. The building's skin, said to resemble Frank Gehry's 8 Spruce Street or even the nearby DKLB BKLN, is enhanced by Bernini-like pinched folds diagonally running up and down the building. Like Gehry's Financial District skyscraper, renderings show the facade will capture changing qualities of light and shadow throughout the day.
To bring the project to fruition, Studio Gang is working alongside executive architects Hill West, interior designers Michaelis Boyd Associates, and landscape architects Hollander Design. The tower will accomodate 480 residences and 50,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenity space. Specific information on the homes has yet to be released but the Tishman team promise 11 Hoyt will present a significant amount of outdoor space to residents.

Residences will start at $600K and will include a wide range of studio to four-bedroom layouts. Supposedly, there will be more than 190 different floorplans in the offering.
Upon completion in 2020, the tower's 620-foot height will make it the second tallest building in Brooklyn after Extell Development's also-rising Brooklyn Point. 11 Hoyt's site, formerly occupied by a Macy’s parking garage, is at the southern forefront of the Downtown Brooklyn skyline and will be steps from the human-scaled blocks of Boerum Hill, while offering residents panoramic views of the harbor, skyline, and bridges above.
