Downtown Brooklyn‘s ever-expanding skyline is set for yet another major imminent addition with the impending rise of 540 Fulton Street. Set to stand 511 feet tall with 327 residential units, the tower will certainly make an impact on the surrounding neighborhood. Designed by Marvel Architects and developed by Jenel Management, the 42-story project will span close to 333,000 square feet. About 96,600 square feet will be allocated towards commercial space, while nearly 236,900 square feet will be used for the residential component.
Located across from Cadman Plaza Park, One Clinton has officially launched sales of its 133 residences. Developed by The Hudson Companies Inc., the Marvel Architects-designed tower is being marketed by the Cornell Marshall Team from the Corcoran Group, with the sales gallery located at 157 Remsen Street. The imminently 38-story tower is set to be completed next year.
Marvel Architects will again appear before the Landmarks Preservation Commission to present alterations to the Village Community School at 272 West 10th Street. The property was originally constructed in 1886 but has undergone a series of alterations dating back to 1945 and 2003.
Since we last checked up on One Clinton Street, back in late August, it was only about nine stories above street level. Now, the 36-story residential tower is climbing past the halfway mark on its way to a 409-foot pinnacle. The Marvel Architects-designed skyscraper is being developed by Hudson Companies, and will span 295,000 square feet when finished. The triangular-shaped property sits at the northern confluence of Cadman Plaza West and Clinton Street, and is also known as 280 Cadman Plaza. Located in Brooklyn Heights, the building will have 134 units and 114 off-site affordable units. One Clinton Street Library will be built on the lower floors, replacing the site’s formerly extant Brooklyn Heights Library.
Marvel Architects and Forman Group will again present proposals to New York City’s Landmark Preservation Commission in an effort to redevelop an existing two-story building for office and retail use at 29 Jay Street in Brooklyn. Located in the DUMBO Historic District, completion of “The Forman Building” would require zoning amendments to allow for a higher than approved street wall, mixed-use designation, and facade design.
