Installation has begun on the first portions of the glass curtain wall of the main profile at 540 Fulton Street, a mixed-use skyscraper in Downtown Brooklyn. Located at the corner of Fulton Street and Flatbush Avenue, work on the 511-foot-tall reinforced concrete structure topped out in the fourth quarter of 2019. The 43-story building is designed by Marvel Architects and developed by Jenel Management. The project will contain 330,000 square feet, with 71,844 square feet allocated to commercial use and 22,054 square feet designated for retail on the lower floors. The remaining 239,142 square feet will be spread across 327 residential units. Zebian International Facade Solutions is the manufacturer for the curtain wall.
Installation of the curtain wall has begun at One Willoughby Square, aka 420 Albee Square, in Downtown Brooklyn. The first row of industrial-style glass panels is now in place on the second floor of the 34-story, 495-foot-tall reinforced concrete skyscraper, joining the other windows already installed on the eastern and northern elevations. Designed by FXCollaborative and developed by JEMB Realty, the topped-out project currently holds the title of the tallest new office building in Brooklyn, and will yield 500,000 square feet of Class A office space. Gilbane Building Company is in charge of construction.
Work is entering the final stretch on Jeanne Gang’s 620-foot-tall, 57-story residential skyscraper at 11 Hoyt Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Installation of the wavy, rippling exterior is substantially complete with only the section behind the mechanical hoist awaiting completion. Meanwhile, the podium and entry areas are beginning to take shape on the residential building, which is developed by Tishman Speyer and designed by Studio Gang, with Hill West Architects as the architect of record. Edmund Hollander of Hollander Design is in charge of landscaping for the outdoor green space above the motor courtyard, while Michaelis Boyd Associates is leading the interior design for the residential units.
Foundations have reached street level at 22 Chapel Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Work has moved along swiftly on the 211-foot-tall residential building since YIMBY checked on the site in August, when excavation was just beginning. The 20-story rental project is designed by CetraRuddy and is being developed by Delshah Capital and OTL Enterprises. Located to the east of St. James Cathedral Basilica by the Brooklyn end of the Manhattan Bridge, 22 Chapel Street will contain 133,181 square feet divided among 180 units.
Work has taken a big step forward at 9 DeKalb Avenue, the outer boroughs’ first supertall skyscraper and number seven on YIMBY’s countdown of the tallest projects underway in New York City. The construction crane has been assembled at the Downtown Brooklyn site and things are gearing up for the start of vertical progress in 2020. The 73-story, 1,066-foot-tall tower is designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS, the same duo behind 111 West 57th Street.
