Façade installation is now underway on the upper floors of the 32-story, 440-unit mixed-use tower under development at 86 Fleet Place, located on the corner of Myrtle Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn. Progress on the structure, which topped out in October, can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits have the tower measuring 427,346 square feet and standing 384 feet to its pinnacle.

Construction is now underway on the 26th floor of the planned 32-story, 440-unit mixed-use building under development at 86 Fleet Place, in Downtown Brooklyn. The progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by user nyc1. The latest building permits indicate the 351-foot-tall tower will eventually encompass 427,346 square feet. It will host 10,813 square feet of commercial-retail space on the ground floor, followed by residential units averaging 871 square feet apiece. Since a leasing office is included, at least a number of the units will be rental apartments. The residential amenities are listed in YIMBY’s previous March update, when the structure was a single story up. John Catsimatidis’s Red Apple Group is the developer and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in 2017.
It was back in September of 2014 that YIMBY brought you news of permits being filed by John Catsimatidis’s Red Apple Group for a 32-story mixed-use tower at 86 Fleet Place, between Willoughby Street and Myrtle Avenue, in Downtown Brooklyn. Now, thanks to photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic, we can see that the building is at least one floor above the ground.
It was nearly two years ago that YIMBY showed you renderings of the 15-story building being developed by John Catsimatidis’ Red Apple Group at 180 Myrtle Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn, dubbed the Margo. Since then the unit count has changed and the building is now nearly complete, with the façade in place, save for some work on the terraces. The realization of that latter fact comes courtesy of photos taken by our friend Tectonic.
In April of 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of Red Apple Group’s 15-story mixed-use building at 180 Myrtle Avenue, in Fort Greene, and a year later, the structure was two stories above street level and rising. According to Brooklyn Daily, the structure has topped out and slightly larger than originally planned. The building — dubbed The Margo — will have 228 residential units, 40 of which will be rented at below-market rates. The ground floor will feature 10,600 and 500 square feet of retail and community health space, respectively. Dattner Architects is designing, and completion is expected in the spring of 2016.
