Work Nears Completion on Contemporary Ninety-Three Stories Tall Brooklyn Tower

Construction of the landmark contemporary ninety-three stories tall Brooklyn Tower in downtown Brooklyn, New York City is nearing completion, with the 762,000-square-foot mixed-use development set to become the first super-tall building in Brooklyn, as well as the tallest building in Brooklyn and the tallest in New York City outside Manhattan.

The skyscraper, designed by Lower Manhattan-based SHoP Architects boasts an Art Deco exterior featuring pilasters of blackened steel, copper, and bronze, plus quintisential New York marble convexacave columns to give the tower character and NYC charm.

Inside, the Brooklyn Tower will feature 120,000 square-feet of amenity spaces, offering residence an outdoor terrace on the tower's fifth floor, four swimming pools, a cocktail bar and a lounge, an indoor fitness centre, a conference room, meeting room, dining room, kitchen, billiards room, and movie room, and more.

A 66th-floor basketball court and an 85th-floor lounge are also included in the building, touted as the tallest residential basketball court in the world.

Works are set to complete on the landmark Brooklyn Tower in spring, linking Flatbush Avenue and Fulton Street.

The historic interior of the Brooklyn Dime Savings Bank, an adjoining landmark, will be restored and repurposed as a key retail anchor for the neighbourhood as part of the Brooklyn Tower development, with the bank playing a key part in the design of the building, which the developers say influenced the choice of materials used for the construction and super-tall façade.
