The reinforced concrete superstructure is rising at 61 DeKalb Avenue, aka One University Plaza, a 34-story Long Island University expansion in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by RXR Realty, the 435-foot-tall, 370,960-square-foot building is part of a new complex that includes an athletic field, fitness and wellness facilities, and additional academic space.
Long Island University
This month Long Island University and RXR Realty celebrated the commencement of a multimillion-dollar capital improvement project at the institution’s Downtown Brooklyn campus. Located near the buzzing intersection of Flatbush and Dekalb Avenues, the improvement plan arrives as part of an initiative to modernize existing academic and recreational facilities.
A new high-rise could be coming right next to the future supertall at 9 DeKalb Avenue. Permits have been filed for a 34-story residential building and parking garage at 61 DeKalb Avenue, on Long Island University’s campus in Downtown Brooklyn. The site is just a handful of blocks away from the A, B, C, D, G, Q, R, 2 3, 4, and 5 train, giving it near-immediate access to the rest of the city. Also in the neighborhood is NYU’s growing Brooklyn campus. LIU will be responsible for development.
