Located in Downtown Brooklyn, sales have officially launched for 11 Hoyt Street, an upcoming 770,000 square foot residential tower designed by Studio Gang Architects, under the direction of Jeanne Gang. Tishman Speyer is the developer of the 57-story, ground-up residential structure, which will rise on a full block. Hill West is the architect of record, while Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is managing sales for the 480 units.
It’s been three months since we got a first look at what’s coming to 11 Hoyt Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Now, construction is starting to rise above street level. The latest images from Tectonic reveal that the building has reached its sixth floor, just shy of one-eighth of the eventual total floor count. At this point, no elements of the distinctive design from the renderings are visible. The 51-story condominium tower is being designed by Studio Gang, a Chicago-based firm. This will be their first residential building in New York City.
The prominence of the Hudson Yards district continues to grow, and today, Tishman Speyer has announced the official start of construction for The Spiral. The 1,031-foot tall building will be the fifth supertall added to the area. An event to mark the occasion will be held this afternoon, and will conclude with the planting of a 20-foot Alaskan Cedar tree to serve as Hudson Boulevard & Park’s annual Christmas tree.
The redevelopment of Macy’s former footprint in Downtown Brooklyn is set to add a major new skyscraper to the Borough’s skyline. Renderings for 11 Hoyt Street are out, and it’s looking to make an impression. The 51-story condominium building is designed by the architecture and urban design firm Studio Gang, led by MacArthur Fellow Jeanne Gang. This project will be the Chicago-based firm’s first residential building in New York City.
Downtown Brooklyn has seen an incredible number of new residential buildings rise up in recent years, redefining the neighborhood and boosting its overall visibility relative to the rest of the Borough. Today, we have a look at a new kind of development for the area, featuring a fusion of design that will bring much-needed modern office space to the booming district.
