The finishing touches are going up on 11 Hoyt Street, a 620-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Downtown Brooklyn. Developed by Tishman Speyer and designed by Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang with Hill West Architects as the architect of record, the exterior of the 57-story project now appears complete, with all of its elegantly sculpted façade panels installed. Michaelis Boyd Associates is leading the interior design for the property’s 481 residential units, which will come in a total of 190 different layouts, and Edmund Hollander of Hollander Design is in charge of landscaping for the private outdoor green spaces. Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is leading the sales and marketing for the Brooklyn residences.
