11 Hoyt’s Wavy Facade Climbs Higher As Superstructure Nears Topping-Out Above Downtown Brooklyn

11 Hoyt is quickly ascending over Downtown Brooklyn. The building’s sculptural and wavy facade is also making its way up the sides, and beginning to give the tower its signature look. Designed by  Studio Gang Architects with Hill West serving as the architect of record, the project is being developed by Tishman Speyer while Corcoran Sunshine is marketing the residences, with interiors by Michaelis Boyd Associates. The complex will span 770,000 square feet when complete, and boast expansive views of the Downtown Brooklyn skyline and neighboring brownstone-lined streets.

Looking at the site today, formation of the reinforced concrete floors continues, while each of the panels are placed on the perimeter one by one. The play of light and shadow, particularly on the segments that elegantly protrude and peel off from the flat surface, is becoming more noticeable with each passing week.

When we last checked in on 11 Hoyt, the facade was only several floors above street level. Now, it appears to be more than a third of the way up. When complete, it may not be the tallest skyscraper in Brooklyn, but the unique curtain wall will certainly make it stand out and shimmer on a sunny day.

A low-rise podium topped with a second-floor 27,000 square foot elevated park designed by Edmund Hollander Design will rise next to the main tower. Landscaping and a large green field will come with a sun deck, a children’s play area, lounge spaces, and barbeque pods. The park is designed to sit above the motor courtyard.

11 Hoyt is expected to be completed by sometime next year.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: Paramount picture from you Michael Young, I have nothing to parodied on 2019 progress. I come from paradise as human to follow you. Do you believe me? (Thanks to Michael Young)

  2. Maybe Wavy Gravy can get an apartment here

  3. This is turning out really nice.

  4. you’d think they’d clean the panels before they installed them

  5. This precisely why Amazon would not have needed to develop any new housing for its employees, had they come. This building is going to be way too high and way too empty after completion. Most of the new buildings in LIC, downtown Brooklyn, Manhattan or elsewhere in Queens are not full to capacity.
