Downtown Brooklyn touts Manhattan skyline views, but it's shaping up quite a skyline of its own Downtown Brooklyn touts Manhattan skyline views, but it's shaping up quite a skyline of its own
Fifteen years have passed since Downtown Brooklyn was rezoned for greater residential development, and the once-industrial area has given way to an increasingly coveted residential one. Between its easy access to Manhattan, close proximity to popular Brooklyn neighborhoods, and increased retail, dining, and entertainment opportunities, it would seem everyone - developers, designers, residents - wants to be a part of it.

The building boom shows no sign of slowing down. If anything, the real estate community is literally thinking bigger so as to keep up with increased office, educational, and retail demand that comes with residential. Some buildings are dramatic new additions to the skyline, others are still but a twinkle in the developer's eye, and all promise to reshape the local landscape.

The 720-foot-tall Brooklyn Point's status as the borough's tallest building is only temporary, as 9 Dekalb Avenue (see below) is nipping at its heels. However, the condominium will retain its status as having the highest rooftop infinity pool in the Western Hemisphere and its home above Dekalb Market Hall, which curates residents-only culinary experiences. It also offers a state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor pool, spa and sauna area, rock-climbing wall, indoor basketball court,game lounge, pet spa, and private dining room with demo kitchen. All apartments feature interiors by Katherine Newman and sweeping city and water views.

On the inside, it enhances the views and provides built-in window seats to enjoy them. Interiors also feature 10' ceilings, grand entrance galleries, open chef's kitchens, abundant closet space, and a choice of finishes. Residents have access to a private park, private driveway, private dog run, and outdoor hot tubs. Indoor amenities at the Park Club and Sky Club include a state-of-the-art fitness center, sports courts, pool, sauna and steam room, co-working lounge, children's playroom, game room, and screening room.

No Brooklyn landmarks were demolished to make way for this supertall. On the contrary, the Brooklyn Dime Savings Bank is being restored and reimagined as the entrance to what will be the tallest building in Brooklyn, a 73-story tower rising behind it. The apartments above will be a mix of rentals and condos, and all residents will have access to a rooftop lounge and pool wrapping around the Guastavino dome. Foundation work began in the spring, and completion is estimated for 2022.

Perhaps no building encapsulates Downtown Brooklyn's renaissance better than the nearly 80-story tower proposed for 625 Fulton Street: It calls for over 50,000 square feet of retail space, 739,000 square feet of office space, an 82,500-square-foot elementary school, and nearly 844,000 square feet of residential space. A quarter of the proposed 902 units would be permanently affordable. If the upzoning is approved, construction would begin in 2020 with completion estimated for 2023.

Demolition permits have been filed for some of the properties already on-site, and renderings have been revealed for a staggered skyscraper with a gray brick facade, industrial-style windows, and several landscaped terraces. It remains to be seen whether it will be a commercial or residential building, but there will be several retail floor plates at the base.
