Funding Secured for Brooklyn’s First Supertall, at 9 DeKalb Avenue
Developer JDS has secured $664 million in funding for the construction of 9 DeKalb Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn. The future residential skyscraper will soon rise 1,066 feet and become the tallest structure in Brooklyn, as well as the first tower in the outer boroughs to pass the 300-meter “supertall” threshold. The loan is coming from Otéra Capital Inc. and Silverstein Capital Partners. SHoP Architects is designing the building, which is located at the corner of DeKalb Avenue and Fleet Street, and sits across the street from the City Point complex. The development is expected to contain 425 rental apartments and 150 condominiums.
