Smile NEW YORK | 9 DeKalb (340 Flatbush) | 1,066 FT | 73 FLOORS

Brooklyn's New Tower, by SHoP, will sprout 775 Feet

Eagle-eyed Nikolai Fedak of New York YIMBY has done it again: spotted crucial permits filed with the Department of Buildings. This time, it's for 340 Flatbush Avenue Extension, between Fleet Street and DeKalb Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn, where the borough's new tallest tower will rise. According to the permits, JDS Development has tapped the go-to megaproject designers—SHoP Architects—to build a 70-story, 775-foot-tall tower skyscraper that will house 495 apartments. JDS and the Chetrit Group bought the assemblage earlier this month for $43 million; there will be 109,000 square feet of commercial space in the proposed 556,000-square-foot building.

About that height: it's significantly bigger than Brooklyn's current tallest tower 388 Bridge Street (590 feet), and what was set to be the tallest, the under-construction Avalon Willoughby West, at 596 feet. Prepare to be second fiddle, AWW. Everyone else: brace.
