Another day, another tower is unveiled for Downtown Brooklyn. Tishman Speyer Properties has released the first renderings of 11 Hoyt, a 480-unit mixed-use development planned for the site of a demolished parking garage belonging to Brooklyn’s flagship Macy’s store. According to the release, the new tower will be designed by the renowned architects and planners at Studio Gang who are best known for their Aqua Tower in Chicago. Led by Jeanne Gang, the Chicago-based practice has several projects underway in the city that include Solar Carve Tower in the Meatpacking District and a new wing to the American Museum of Natural History.
Studio Gang will be collaborating with the London-based interior designer Michaelis Boyd Associates and the landscape architects of Hollander Design. According to permits submitted to the DOB last year, 11 Hoyt will stretch 52 stories, 591 feet high to top of its highest occupiable floor — making it among the top five tallest buildings in the borough upon completion.

Renderings show a silvery metal skin with creased projections cascading down the tower. The design is not unlike the bay windows of New York by Gehry in Manhattan and similar to 80 Dekalb nearby and the fritted-glass IAC Building in Chelsea.
The release notes that 11 Hoyt will have 480 apartments coupled with 50,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenity space. There will be studio to four-bedroom residences in a wide range of layouts with more than 190 different floorplans. According to Tishman, the building offers a "rare opportunity for residents to own a one-of-a-kind home.” Additionally, the tower is sited at the edge of the burgeoning high-rise district, which will grant most buyers captivating views over Brooklyn south to the ocean and Verrazano Bridge, New York harbor, and the Manhattan skyline. Prices will range from the $600,000’s to over $4,000,000 and sales are anticipated to begin this summer.

According to the floor schedule submitted to the city, amenities are to include a 147-car parking garage, 40,000 square feet of retail, a swimming pool, sauna, fitness center, squash court, an amenity kitchen and tenant storage.
“11 Hoyt is destined to become Downtown Brooklyn’s most desirable new address. We are honored to collaborate with such a talented group of globally-minded and innovative design partners to launch our first ground-up condominium offering in New York City,” said Rob Speyer, CEO of Tishman Speyer. “The combination of 11 Hoyt’s world-class design, unmatched amenity space, and convenient, highly coveted location make this development truly one-of-a-kind.”
11 Hoyt was made possible through a $270 million deal with Macy’s in 2015. Tishman Speyer acquired the parking garage and the top five floors of the department store which it is now converting into a creative office hub named The Wheeler. Other current Tishman developments include The Spiral in Hudson Yards, The JACX, and Jackson Park in Long Island City.
