Sky-high Brooklyn tower to feature nearly 500 rental units

Developers of 73-story building need approval from Landmarks Preservation Commission
  • 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.

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.
