Construction has topped out on 219 Jay Street, a 13-story residential building in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by Kane Architecture and Urban Design and developed by Tankhouse Development, the 130-foot-tall structure will yield 27 condominium units spread across 54,118 square feet, for an average scope of 1,340 square feet. KSK Construction Group is the general contractor and 219 JSP LLC is the owner of the property, which is alternately addressed as 9 Chapel Street and bound by Concord Street to the north, Chapel Street to the south, and Jay Street to the west.
Excavation was about to get underway at the time of our last update in March 2022. Since then, the entire reinforced concrete superstructure has been constructed up to the pinnacle, and work has shifted to the installation of the building’s undulating perforated metal façade. Recent photos show several sections of the lower levels painted black while crews build out the walls with metal frame studs and insulation panels.
The following close-up shots detail the look of the flowing mesh façade that will form the outermost layer of the building’s shell, enclosing a series of corner terraces lined with metal railings.
The main rendering shows the undulating façade covering the entire building. Multiple setbacks on the upper levels will make way for private outdoor terraces for a select number of units. At ground level are several raised garden beds lining the sidewalks and entrance.
The nearest subway from the property are the A and C trains at the High Street station to the northwest. Also nearby is the F train at the York Street station to the north and the 2 and 3 trains at the Clark Street station to the west.
219 Jay street is slated for completion in December 2023, as noted on the construction board.
