YIMBY recently went on a hard-hat tour of Jeanne Gang’s 620-foot-tall, 57-story skyscraper at 11 Hoyt Street in Downtown Brooklyn. The wavy, rippling precast façade has reached the flat roof parapet, while work on the podium and lower floors is headed toward completion. Tishman Speyer is the developer and Hill West is the architect of record for the Studio Gang-designed residential project. Edmund Hollander of Hollander Design is in charge of landscaping for the outdoor green space above the motor courtyard and podium section.

The tower’s upper floors offer wide views of the Financial District, Midtown, Williamsburg, Long Island City, Downtown Brooklyn, the harbor with Statue of Liberty, and the Verrazano Narrows Bridge. Positioned a moderate distance from the rest of the Downtown Brooklyn skyscrapers gives residents a much broader view of the surrounding neighborhood and beyond.

11 Hoyt Street will include 481 condominium units with 190 unique layouts designed by Michaelis Boyd Associates. The interior styles will be split between two Brooklyn-inspired palettes called Heritage and Classic. Prices for the homes start at $690,000 for studios and range upward of approximately $3,500,000 for a four-bedroom residence. Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is handling sales and marketing. The development includes 55,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities such as the 32nd-floor Sky Club, the third-floor Park Club, Hollander Design’s elevated 27,000-square-foot private park, a fitness and aquatic center curated by The Wright Fit, a 75-foot-long saltwater pool, a squash court, men’s and women’s locker facilities, steam showers, a sauna, massage and relaxation rooms, and a yoga/group fitness studio.

Completion of 11 Hoyt Street is expected next year.

  1. Michaelis Boyd did not design the layouts, Hill West did.

  2. Though the facade is visually appealing, I’m concerned the window cleaning will have to include the cleaning of the entire exterior due to the nooks and crannies which will become dirt traps.

  3. Outstanding pictures as always!

  4. I hope they enjoy the view from the (windy) roof. There’s nothing for them at ground level: parks? gardens? dog run? schools? The subway platforms are overloaded. No city planning. DBP is the developers’ dream. Enjoy the view? i.e. keep your blindfolds on.

    • Well there’s that “private” park, so no one has to mingle with the riff riff. And I’m sure there will be a seat or two in the nearby private schools. Again, no unsightly mingling. But the subway, how to avoid the subway? Another planning pet peeve of mine: GARBAGE! more and more garbage has been piling up in our neighborhood, not every (any?) development plans for what to do before sanitation picks it up. Literally no room to walk.
