Demolition is almost complete at 80 Flatbush Avenue in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, the site of an 840-foot-tall skyscraper, the 17th tallest project underway in New York City. A large amount of debris and rubble is scattered across the narrow, triangular property and awaiting removal. The steel frame of a previous structure is still standing but will soon be knocked down to make way for the new multi-structure, mixed-use complex developed by Alloy Development.
Photos show the last remaining building still standing on the southern end of the property, covered in scaffolding and black netting. Excavators are busy working on the middle and northern sections.
80 Flatbush Avenue is bound by Flatbush Avenue, State Street, Third Avenue, and a small sliver of Schermerhorn Street. The development includes a planned 350-seat elementary and high school by Khalil Gibran International Academy and two ground-up skyscrapers. Two historic structures will be preserved. The property will have a total of 870 residences, 200 of which will be affordable units. The closest subways are the 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains at the Nevins Street station up Flatbush Avenue and the B, D, N, Q, and R trains at the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Station. The Atlantic Terminal is across the street to the south.
Construction and completion dates for the skyscraper has not been announced yet.
