Full permits have been filed for a 52-story mixed-use skyscraper at 589 Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Bound by Fulton Street, DeKalb Avenue, and Flatbush Avenue, the lot is steps from the Dekalb Avenue subway station, serviced by the B, Q, and R trains. The Witkoff Group is listed as the owner behind the applications.

The proposed 575-foot-tall development will yield 557,973 square feet, with 489,280 square feet designated for residential space and 68,693 square feet for retail space on the ground floor. The building will have 591 residences, most likely rentals based on the average unit scope of 827 square feet, higher than YIMBY previously reported. The concrete-based structure will also have a cellar, penthouse, and a recreation and sports facility on the second and fourth floors.

Beyer Blinder Belle is listed as the architect of record.

Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the lot has been excavated and piling work has commenced. An estimated completion date has not been announced.

  1. Well, you knew this was going to happen at that corner?

    There’s more to come soon, as these towers feel “safer” in a cluster

  2. This looks like it’ll be solid filler in the DTB skyline. I wish it was at least a hundred feet taller, it’s such a prominent location. Could be worse though.

  3. more high rents in a very desirable area, and they will call it affordable housing units, SMH
