The soon-to-be tallest skyscraper in Brooklyn is now on the verge of truly towering heights. Since YIMBY last visited Brooklyn Point, the concrete has risen 20 additional floors above street level. The installation of several segments of the façade has added another new element, offering a glimpse at the glass and white paneling soon to dominate the borough’s skyline, at least until 9 DeKalb’s imminent rise nearby. Extell is responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for a new nine-story residential complex at 2016 Arthur Avenue in The Bronx’s Tremont neighborhood. The site is eight blocks away from the Tremont train station, serviced by Metro North. Jeff Fox of Foxy Management is responsible for the development, and the firm purchased the lot for $4 million earlier this year.
Permits have been filed for a 20-story mixed-use building at 1230 Madison Avenue, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The site is ideally located for culturally engaged residents, as it is on the same block as the Guggenheim Museum, and just six blocks away from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Six blocks away is the 86th Street subway station, serviced by the 4, 5, and 6 trains. Real Estate Equities Corporation (R.E.E.C.) is behind the applications.
Extell Development Company has announced the successful acquisition of $530 million in financing for Brooklyn Point, its first development in the borough. When complete, the 720-foot-tall structure will become the tallest residential tower in Brooklyn, surpassing The Hub, located just to its south.
Located at 143 Fulton Street in the Financial District, the new 364-foot-tall and 298-room Moxy hotel is almost complete, with the final exterior finishes underway at the base of the tower. Two entrances to the building are located on Fulton Street and Ann Street, and up above, the project features a dark glass facade atop a four-story podium. SLCE Architects is the architect, while the developer of the nearly 129,000 square foot property is Tribeca Associates. Interiors are being done by Stonehill & Taylor.
