Slow and steady. When it begins to rise fully, it will rise pretty quickly.

Just to remind you that we had a hole dug up here before over 2 years ago. This has to be the longest foundation work ever for a supertall:

The Spiral is actually under construction while this seems to be in the nebulous `prep` stage.

This tower has been under construction. The Spiral is under construction as well, even as some excavation work continues on that site.

Similar to 111 W 57th, a lot of initial work before we see it going vertical. We just have to be patient. But yeah, the suspense continues on two great towers, this, and 45 Broad.

@NYguy. I consider a building `under construction`when physical, permanent elements of foundation are visible.

Newsflash: NO ONE cares what you consider under construction.

Will be very interesting to see how much this building actually resembles the renderings.

I'm anxious to see the actual cladding.

You must respect the rules of this forum. As in life, best way to learn the rules is to sit back and watch the discourse for a little while, unless you have privileged information to share.

You and me both! Best of all, it will stand out in its location vs. being lost on Manhattan.

Please don't let a recession, bank issue, etc. kill this building!

Historic Bank Buildings Get a Second Act
New developments across the city are repurposing the opulent spaces where New Yorkers once deposited their savings.




By Stefanos Chen
April 19, 2019


Quote:
The fate of the soaring, palatial and utterly impractical Dime Savings Bank in Downtown Brooklyn was inevitable.

The 16,750-square-foot, 40-foot-tall chamber, with seven kinds of marble flooring, a vaulted-tile dome and Corinthian columns, closed in 2016, a victim of automated tellers and digital payments. Its last full-time tenant, Chase Bank, moved into a squat storefront across the street, about one-tenth the size.

The bank’s second act is more surprising: It will become part of Brooklyn’s tallest skyscraper, 9 DeKalb, a 1,066-foot luxury apartment building with retail at its base. The landmark Beaux-Arts interior will be transformed into a flagship store, and the roof will become an outdoor lounge with a pool that wraps around an ornate Guastavino dome. The marble and pink granite facade will be fused on one side to a slender glass-and-steel tower designed by SHoP Architects, which will have about 425 rentals and 150 condo apartments.
Quote:
The developer’s gain is clear in these projects, but what do the historic buildings get out of it? In the case of 9 DeKalb, where the Dime Savings Bank will merge with the borough’s first super-tall skyscraper, the bank will be restored, inside and out.

The developer, JDS, bought the bank and its air rights for $95 million in 2016. That gave the tower an additional 385,000 square feet of development rights, adding about 30 more floors. In exchange, the developer will repair damage to broken capitals and weathered friezes and preserve much of the landmark interior, restoring the hand-painted wallpaper in the upstairs ladies’ lounge, among other things.

The restoration has also uncovered some bank lore. In the subbasement, insulated by thick concrete, security guards used to shoot their weapons against a far wall for target practice, said Marci M. Clark, an architectural historian who is a director with JDS.
Quote:
On a recent morning, light poured into a subterranean vault that had not seen the sun since the early 20th century. The developer had torn down an accessory building on the lot to make way for the tower. One of the bank’s walls had been temporarily pinned, held up like a theater scrim, so the new building can be integrated behind it.

The new tower, which is expected to be completed in 2022, will be deferential to the landmark, but not derivative, said Gregg Pasquarelli, a principal at SHoP Architects, the designer. The hexagonal geometry of the building, seen in its ornate tile and coffered ceilings, will be echoed in the shape of the new structure.

Will There Be a Pool on Top of the Landmarked Dime Savings Bank in Downtown Brooklyn?


by Craig Huber
April 19 2019


Quote:
Is there going to be a pool on top of the landmarked Dime Savings Bank in Downtown Brooklyn? According to a new rendering published this morning in the New York Times,
the answer seems to be yes.

But how is that possible? Located at 9 Dekalb Avenue, the project will eventually fuse Brooklyn’s first supertall skyscraper to one of the borough’s most iconic structures.
The bank building is landmarked both inside and out, unusually, and will be preserved and integrated into the new skyscraper.
Quote:
An application for a new building permit filed in 2017 lists an outdoor pool on the fifth floor. There is no mention of the outdoor pool in the presentation materials
presented to the Landmarks Preservation Commission in April 2016. Normally, the commission would have to approve something like this and the effects it could have
on the historic building.

A new rendering (included in a Times story about repurposing old banks) shows the pool situated on the roof of the historic bank and wrapping around its dome. Another new rendering,
now on architect SHoP’s website, reveals a sliver of blue atop a new section of the supertall that connects to the old bank. A version of the view included with the LPC materials did not show a pool.
Quote:
At the meeting, commissioners called the proposal “enlightened urbanism at its best,” and said it “improved the vision of this historic landmark.”

When complete, the new tower will stand 73 stories and 1,066 feet tall, making it the first building in the borough to hit quadruple digits in height.
