The project also includes a 38-story structure, two new schools and two 19th century commercial buildings repurposed as cultural venues.

80 Flatbush Brooklyn tower

Brooklyn’s tallest building for decades – the 37-story, 500-foot-tall Williamsburg Savings Bank building (1929), now called 1 Hansen Place – will be overshadowed by the new skyscraper, rising to 1,000 feet. Controversy surrounds the development but especially the overshadowing of the popular Art Deco clock tower.

The first public hearing of the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure process (ULURP) met March 28th in Brooklyn Heights.

Representatives of Alloy Development, and the New York City Educational Construction Fund, which is building the proposed schools, attended.

Citizens raised concerns about scale, density, affordable housing (just 200 of the 900 apartments) and pressure on local infrastructure such as public transport and schools.

Alloy Development seeks rezoning for the irregular quadrilateral site to triple the allowable floor area ratio (FAR).

Other towers on Flatbush include the 720-foot, 68-story Brooklyn Point by KPF, under construction by Extell (for an image please scroll down this page to Feb 6, 2018), and 1,000+ feet 78-story 9 DeKalb designed by SHoP for JDS Development Group.

20th Street House
This 20-foot-wide wood frame townhouse, located at the end of a row along a narrow side yard, had existing front and rear extensions. The building volume was selectively manipulated – in some cases through addition, in others through subtraction – to improve room sizes, sequences and adjacencies.

Brooklyn Row House Refurb
A gut renovation of an existing 1880s Brooklyn row house. The building forms a new prototype for contemporary urban living: it inverts and opens up the traditional row house by replacing a stacked stair with a switchback stair and inserting a dramatic skylight atop the new vertical stair volume.

Developer Extell’s City Point tower will have the highest rooftop pool in NYC, 680 feet above Downtown Brooklyn.
Sitting at the top of the 720-foot luxury condo it will be a 27-foot-long saltwater infinity pool, with a full lounge area, a stargazing observatory, and space for outdoor movie screenings.

It takes the title from the 500-foot 1 QPS Tower in Long Island City. The design is by Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects. The pool area will include outdoor showers, changing rooms and plenty of space for al fresco dining. The 68-story tower by Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) will be the tallest building in Brooklyn.

Williamsburg Hotel Brooklyn – 28 Oct 2011

Oppenheim wins international competition to design new hotel in Brooklyn, NY

A third pillar of the Williamsburg Bridge to emerge after 108 years

Williamsburg, Brooklyn is one of the most interesting and cutting edge neighborhoods in the world. It is a soulful, culinary and style epicenter that is raw, edgy, and visceral. A place that attracts intellectual cognisanti in search of “the real”.

Brooklyn Architecture Competition – 2 Aug 2011

The Gowanus Canal is located in the Brooklyn borough of New York City and is one of the only underdeveloped areas left for good reason. In 2010 the EPA put Gowanus Canal on the Superfund National Priorities List. The approximately mile long canal was built on an existing creek in 1869 and acted as a major cargo transportation hub between Brooklyn and New York City with manufactured gas plants, mills, tanneries, and chemical plants among the industries located there.
