New York City-based architecture firm Beyer Blinder Belle has returned to the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission with revised proposals to construct a new high-rise development within Brooklyn’s Borough Hall Skyscraper Historic District. The building was formerly referred to as 192 Montague Street, but has been presented to the commission on the second try as 200 Montague Street.

The latest proposal documents are dated May 2, 2019 and contain alterations almost exclusively to the exterior cladding of the structure. Updated renderings reveal a much darker façade that is comprised of polished black granite, charcoal grey aluminum window frames, perforated bronze-toned aluminum elements below each window and setback levels, and light-grey-painted aluminum surrounding the bulkhead mechanicals at the roof level.

The existing four-story building is located at 200 Montague Street and most recently contained a ground-floor HSBC bank with associated office space above. Midtown Equities, a privately-held development firm, acquired 200 Montague from HSBC Bank in 2007 and intends to demolish the low-rise structure. If approved, the new project would top-out at 20 stories tall.

As previously reported by YIMBY, residential amenities and a sub-retail space would be positioned below street level, retail and the main lobby on the building’s ground floor, with residential units positioned between the second floor through twentieth floors. Roof levels of the development would include a private outdoor terrace facing north along Montague Street.

Midtown Equities has not commented on the expected completion date of the new property.

    Can’t believe they are building another building without parking.

  2. We don’t need more parking. Especially not free parking.
