Exterior work is complete on The Wheeler, a mixed-use development at 181 Livingston Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by Perkins Eastman and Shimoda Design Group and developed by Tishman Speyer, the project involved the construction of modern 14-story, 256-foot-tall addition atop a historic Art Deco building containing a Macy’s department store. The steel-framed addition yields 843,830 square feet of new commercial space above the Macy’s, which spans the first four floors. Offices take up the remaining 90,000 square feet and feature 16-foot-tall ceiling heights. The property is also addressed as 422 Fulton Street.
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.
The Watermark at Brooklyn Heights opened for occupancy this week at 21 Clark Street in Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn. The senior living community occupies the former Leverich Towers Hotel originally constructed in 1928.

The $3.7 billion, 66-story Hudson Yards supertall is being developed by Tishman Speyer with Turner Construction Company as the construction manager.
