Downtown Brooklyn‘s ever-expanding skyline is set for yet another major imminent addition with the impending rise of 540 Fulton Street. Set to stand 511 feet tall with 327 residential units, the tower will certainly make an impact on the surrounding neighborhood. Designed by Marvel Architects and developed by Jenel Management, the 42-story project will span close to 333,000 square feet. About 96,600 square feet will be allocated towards commercial space, while nearly 236,900 square feet will be used for the residential component.

Despite the anticipation, recent photos show a couple of stop-work order papers posted on the construction fence along Fulton Street. The DOB indicates that the site has “failed to safeguard all persons or property affected by construction operations.” While two other stop-work orders are now partially resolved, this particular one appears to still be in effect.

Renderings show the northern and southern elevations of 540 Fulton Street will be enclosed in a glass curtain wall, while the shorter eastern and western exteriors will be finished in architecturally refined concrete. The four corners will have glass panels running the full height of the tower up to the flat roof parapet. A five-story podium would rise in front of Fulton Street before the building reaches the only setback. Amenities for residents include a rooftop terrace with views of Downtown Brooklyn and the Manhattan skyline in the background.

A completion date for 540 Fulton Street is unclear at the moment, but signage indicates October of 2020 is likely.
