Construction of 540 Fulton Street is nearing the halfway mark in Downtown Brooklyn, as workers rapidly pour and form the reinforced concrete slabs of the 511-foot-tall mixed-use skyscraper. Located near the corner of Fulton Street and Flatbush Avenue, the 43-story building is designed by Marvel Architects and is being developed by Jenel Management. The project will yield about 330,000 square feet, with 71,844 square feet allocated to commercial space and 22,054 square feet designated for retail on the lower floors. The remaining 239,142 square feet will be occupied by residential units.
New photos from above Flatbush Avenue and from street level show the state of the rising structure, which appears to have reached the 21st floor.
Installation of the curtain wall on the northern façade has yet to commence, and it is unclear when that phase of construction will begin. The main rendering shows a glass curtain wall punctuated by a grid of gold-colored panels. The side walls appear to be left blank. Residents who face north will be treated to views of Downtown Brooklyn and parts of the Manhattan skyline, while those oriented in the opposite direction will have vistas of the rest of Brooklyn, the Verrazzano Narrows Bridge, and the morning sun.
A completion date of October 2020 is listed on the construction fence.
