Having topped out, the mixed-use tower under construction at 415 Red Hook Lane (a.k.a. 117 Livingston Street), in Downtown Brooklyn, is now receiving its façade.

Shots of the façade installation have been provided by prolific construction photographer Tectonic. As depicted in the project’s rendering, the Livingston Street side is decidedly glassier. However, it appears the actual building has a slightly different fenestration pattern on the Red Hook Lane side.

Ennead Architects is behind the design and the project is being developed by Quinlan Development and Lonicera Partners.

The structure is 21 stories tall, rising to 210 feet. The latest building permit, issued in July, shows it encompasses 107,914 square feet. With 108 residential units spread across 94.439 square feet, that works out to apartments averaging over 874 square feet.

Those residential units will start on the third floor with three of them. Then there will be seven units each on fourth floor through the 14th floor. That will be followed by four units each on the 15th floor through the 21st floor.

Below them will be retail spaces on the cellar through second floor. Commercial space will total 13,475 square feet.

Amenities will include residential storage in the cellar and room for 56 bicycles on the third floor (no automobile parking is listed). The third floor will also host laundry facilities, a fitness room, a lounge, and a terrace. There will also be a terrace on the roof.

The site is right around the corner from the Borough Hall station on the 4/5 trains, the Jay St-MetroTech station on the A, C, F, and R trains, and several others.

Completion can probably be expected by the end of the year.

  1. The structure is prominent every side, close-up and far away with its straight angles. (I like)

    Can you guys stop calling it “Do Bro” its DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN, Nobody in Brooklyn calls it that. You guys need to stop making these new fake neighborhoods. Stop abbreviating theses historic New York neighborhood. You’re killing New York.

    • DoBro is a great name and I’m glad it’s catching on! Nobody called it DUMBO until everyone did, in the 1980s. Nobody used the name Boerum Hill before the 60s. Nobody called it Crown Heights before the 20s. And nobody called it Bay Ridge until the 1850s.

    No native Brooklynite or person with half a brain would call it anything but “downtown Brooklyn.” I’m glad someone else got here ahead of me. Those of you who like “DoBro” should go back to Ohio or wherever the hell you came from and get out of Brooklyn and stop making our borough any more disgusting than you ever have. (Lots of transplants, the majority I’m sure, who have made Brooklyn a better place would agree. Saying or writing “DoBro” is a way of telling the world you’re a subhuman douchebag who needs to be deported from NYC.

  4. I can’t believe on the third one to say this because I’m very passionate about it: EvAss please stop calling downtown Brooklyn dobro….. It is a silly, goofy acronym for one of the only two great Brooklyn neighborhoods that actually have the word Brooklyn in it! Downtown Brooklyn and Brooklyn Heights.
    You sound like a tourist!
