The gradient from stone to metallic bronze at the top (on the lobby podium facade) is going to be so beautiful.

Work on the adjacent structures. Similar to Stienway in its approach. There has to be preliminary work on site and existing nearby structures prior to us seeing steel or concrete.

The LinkedIn page for Linde-Griffith Construction Company has a great video (filmed from an adjacent rooftop) of them installing caisson footings. If someone could pull from LinkedIn or post a link that would be great.

The emerging density in downtown BK is great, but I want some of those assemblages along the Fulton Mall to get going.

Fulton has improved 100x, but could still be so much more. It's surrounded by some of the most desirable urban neighborhoods on the planet and still kinda schlocky in parts.

No clue. Yonkers? Even Fordham Rd. and the Hub have cleaned up.

Some grit is good, but it's silly to have super downscale retail next to $4 million condos. And even if shoppers happen to be lower income, it doesn't mean they want to shop in trashy business, with barrels of tube socks spilling into the street.

Brooklyn’s First Supertall Gets Ready To Rise At 9 DeKalb Avenue As Foundation Work Makes Headway



Quote:
Peering through the thick, green fence netting that surrounds the site of 9 DeKalb Avenue, one can now see the foundations for the imminently-1,066-foot-tall residential supertall making progress. Large hollow steel pilings crowd the northern perimeter of the construction site, waiting to be lodged into the ground with the giant piledriver being put to work by several construction workers spotted on site. The 73-story tower is being designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS Development and Chetrit Group.

It will soon rise along Flatbush Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn, behind the Dime Savings Bank of Brooklyn. The building was preserved and will be repurposed as part of the new base for the tower. WSP is in charge of the engineering aspect for the project.

Each hollow piling looks no less than five feet in diameter, with some reaching over a couple of stories tall when lifted straight up and positioned in place, before being hammered into the ground. Part of the reason for the building’s overall elongated hexagonal footprint and massing comes from the irregular shape of the site itself, and the boundaries of available space left to build up. A 100,000-square foot retail base along with a new entrance lining Flatbush Avenue will occupy the lower floors of the tower.

500 rental units will be housed above, to be enclosed within a dark brown facade of reflective glass and bronze finishes, vertically accentuating the building’s height and multiple staggered setbacks. This attention to detail intends to recall and revive the traditional design of New York skyscrapers from the early twentieth century, emphasizing a thoughtful and well-crafted facade with infinitely more character and appeal than a typical glass box.

Positioned next to the landmarked Dime Savings Bank, the structure will be formed and assembled with reinforced concrete. The massing and size of the floors eventually become smaller towards the top of the tower, with the corner facades of the upper floors culminating several feet above the roof parapet. Seen from afar, the effect should result in a dramatic topping-off of the curtain wall that pierces above the skyline like a Neo-Gothic crown.

It is so droolworthy! And the incorporation of the historic bank building at the base...it is just too perfect. So so jealous of NYC (and Chicago too).

The eastern world can have their record-breaking tall towers, I am more than happy to stick with supertalls but with more character than glass walls. NYC is showing us why it is the skyscraper capital of the world.

Awesome. The borough of Kings deserves its crown.
