Brooklyn Tower’s Crown Cladding Underway at 9 DeKalb Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn
The stainless steel, aluminum, and glass façade is beginning to cover the crown of the Brooklyn Tower, a 93-story residential supertall at 9 DeKalb Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS Development, the 1,066-foot-tall structure stands as the tallest building in the outer boroughs that will boast 150 condominium units, 280 market-rate rental units, 120 affordable rental units, and 100,000-square-foot retail podium that incorporates the landmarked Dime Savings Bank of Brooklyn. Homes for purchase are going to start over 500 feet above street level. Douglas Elliman is serving as the exclusive marketing, sales, and leasing agent for the property, which is bound by Flatbush Avenue Extension to the northeast, Fleet Street to the northwest, DeKalb Avenue to the south, and the adjoining Dime Savings Bank of Brooklyn to the west.
