The Brooklyn Tower – Brooklyn’s First Supertall Skyscraper Reaches Its Peak Height of 1,066 Feet

Brooklyn’s first supertall skyscraper has now reached its full height, and the companies behind it announced the completion of the 1,066-foot (324 m) tall tower.

The skyscraper, called ‘The Brooklyn Tower’, is located at 9 Dekalb Avenue and is described as an ‘imaginative new building’ that is ‘made up of interlocking hexagons and dramatic cascading reversals on a facade of gleaming bronzes and deep blacks.’

The companies behind the construction are JDS Development Group and Shop Architects, who say the tower is a “monumental new residential building with unprecedented views.”

The 93-story behemoth, which has been under construction since 2018, will offer views of the Brooklyn borough and beyond, of the Manhattan skyline, the East River and the Statue of Liberty.

It is located in downtown Brooklyn, close to places like the Dumbo neighborhood, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and the Barclays Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets basketball team.

Brooklyn’s historic Dime Savings Bank, “where locals could open a savings account for just a penny,” is connected to the skyscraper at its base.

The ‘hexagonal pattern’ of the bank’s design informed the geometric exterior of the skyscraper.

According to a statement, The Brooklyn Tower’s “distinctive materiality incorporates white marble at its base and evolves into blackened stainless steel and shades of bronze and copper as the tower ascends.”

The statement adds: ‘The façade powerfully maintains its shape, texture and materiality at all angles, displaying a wide variety of fluted, cylindrical and triangular shapes arranged in a strongly vertical composition between large glass panes.’

Approximately 550 residences will occupy the tower, 150 of which will be available for purchase and will start at an elevation of more than 500 feet (152 m).

Prospective buyers are expected to be able to purchase residences in the landmark building beginning in early 2022, and the building is anticipated to open for occupancy later in the year.

The other 400 residences will be available for rent, and 30 percent of them will be designated as affordable housing through the ‘Housing New York’ plan, which addresses the city’s affordable housing crisis.

The base of the building will house 100,000 square feet (9,290 square meters) of commercial facilities.

Elsewhere in the tower, there are plans for ‘state-of-the-art health and fitness spaces’ and open-air galleries for ‘rest and recreation on the horizon’.

A swimming pool is being built on the roof of the decommissioned Dime Savings Bank, where residents of The Brooklyn Tower ‘will be able to swim, lounge and barbecue around the historic dome.’

The Brooklyn Tower finisher knocks Brooklyn’s second tallest building, the 720-foot (219 m) tall Brooklyn Point, off its pedestal. The third tallest skyscraper is 11 Hoyt, which spans the district at 620 feet (189 m).

As the supertall skyscraper nears completion, Gregg Pasquarelli, founding director of Shop Architects, says: “The Shop team is delighted to be part of a project that is so impactful for one of the world’s most acclaimed horizons.

“We wanted it to remain authentic, with that baroque Brooklyn charm, but also look sharp and modern to capture the district’s constant state of growth and influence.”
