Architectural photographer Tectonic recently checked in on the progress at 80 Flatbush Avenue in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. Demolition is underway to clear the site for the construction of a multi-structure development that will include one of the borough’s tallest skyscrapers. A large assembly of scaffolding and black netting shrouds what remains of the original brick structure that is being dismantled floor by floor. Last year the City Council approved the project, which had a reduction in size and scale and a redesign of the largest tower. Alloy Development is the developer of the complex, which is located on a triangular plot bound by Flatbush Avenue, State Street, Third Avenue, and a small sliver of Schermerhorn Street.

Located on an irregular corner lot at 21 Greenwich Avenue, the two existing structures on the site include a shuttered ground-floor restaurant facing West 10th Street and a separate three-story brick building with additional frontage on Greenwich Avenue. The latter once supported a small ground-floor gallery along Greenwich Avenue and residential area positioned on the second and third floors of the property.
