Construction continues to move toward completion at 11 Hoyt Street, a 57-story residential skyscraper in Downtown Brooklyn. Developed by Tishman Speyer and designed by Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang with Hill West Architects as the architect of record, the 620-foot-tall structure stands out on the skyline with its distinctive rippling façade. Michaelis Boyd Associates is leading the interior design for the property’s 481 residential units, which come in 190 unique layouts. Edmund Hollander of Hollander Design is in charge of the landscaping for the building’s private outdoor green spaces.
Recent photos show much of the structure is in the same state as it was when YIMBY last visited in late July. The entirety of the sculpted surface panels are in place, with the exception of those behind the exterior hoist, which still remains standing on the eastern elevation.
Landscaping work has made progress since our last visit, with a number of trees of varying species planted atop the low-rise podium. The leaves have fallen off with the advent of autumn, so we have to wait until spring to see the lush foliage and landscaping come back to life. The sidewalk scaffolding remains in place covering the exterior of the podium façade, which appears to have a porous white metal grate above the ground floor. The western entrance to the motor courtyard is still blocked off with construction gates and black netting, but it looks like it has been populated with more shrubbery and landscaping. This area was one of the last sections to be constructed as it was used as the main staging area.
Homes start at $690,000 for studios and range up to approximately $3,500,000 for a four-bedroom layout. Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is leading the sales and marketing. Future residents have an option of two Brooklyn-inspired palettes called Heritage and Classic. There will also be 55,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities such as the 32nd-floor Sky Club, the third-floor Park Club, and Hollander Design’s elevated 27,000-square-foot private park. Rounding out the offerings are 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.
11 Hoyt Street is on pace to finish construction sometime next year.
