Foundations have reached street level at 22 Chapel Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Work has moved along swiftly on the 211-foot-tall residential building since YIMBY checked on the site in August, when excavation was just beginning. The 20-story rental project is designed by CetraRuddy and is being developed by Delshah Capital and OTL Enterprises. Located to the east of St. James Cathedral Basilica by the Brooklyn end of the Manhattan Bridge, 22 Chapel Street will contain 133,181 square feet divided among 180 units.
Photos show the state of progress on the development. Work on the first story should commence imminently.
Amenities for 22 Chapel Street will include 87 private parking spaces for occupants, a residential lounge, a party room, a fitness center, a children’s playroom, a swimming pool on the 15th floor, and an outdoor rooftop deck. The building will also feature 2,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, a community facility, and bicycle storage for residents. The rental units begin on the third floor and go up to the 20th story.
The A, B, C, F, Q, R, 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains are all nearby at the High Street, York Street, DeKalb Avenue, Clark Street, Borough Hall, and Jay Street-MetroTech stations. Quick and direct access to the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and the Manhattan Bridge is available by driving east along Tillary Street, which is on the opposite side of the adjacent McLaughlin Park Softball Field.
22 Chapel Street is expected to be completed in the winter of 2022, as noted on the construction fence.
