Move over Manhattan– Brooklyn is the next target for a monstourous development. JDS Development and Chetrit Group are making strides with plans on a 1,066-foot-tall residential tower at 340 Flatbush Ave. Ext. and 9 Dekalb Ave.
- Designed by Shop Architects, the bronze and glass hexagonal property would tower twice as high over the tallest surrounding landscape.
- In order to continue with construction, JDS must submit alterations to the Landmarks Preservation Commission at a scheduled hearing on March 15.
- Last week, Shop Architects presented its renderings to the Brooklyn Community Board Two Land Use Committee, which approved the proposed development.
- Downtown Brooklyn, where the project is located, is one of the fastest accelerating neighborhoods in terms of year-over-year rent price.
