Please please please let this get built before a recession kills it, limits it to 500' or something else. I just love this building.

Its not going to get killed because its financed, there is a housing demand in which part of this tower does have affordable housing, and there is high demand for market rate units and unbelievably so for affordable housing; so much that the lottery has horrible odds due to how many applicants are in the pipeline. This tower is not uber ultra luxury. Might I say, kinda affordable relative to whats rising on 57th Street or anywhere on the UWS.

NYC has a way of weathering recessions on a side note, as history has shown. But the biggest factor is housing in general. One might think a million dollar unit might not sell, but it will! It will!!! Its actually cheap compared to some of the bs costs in Manhattan for example. 1 million dollars might seem a lot for some cities, but depending on the neighborhood, its actually a bargain in NYC (location dependent). There is massive demand for units 400k-1.5 million in price.

Another tower thats actually cheap relatively speaking is 99 Hudson in Jersey City. Magnitudes cheaper than getting something in SoHo or Greenwich village, and you'll actually get a killer view along with it versus staring at some brick wall for a 4 million dollar unit in SoHo.

Do yourselves a favor and head over to JDS's Instagram page. They just released a new video which displays some software that takes renderings to a whole new level!

It looks like it has a ways to go before it starts to rise...

^ yes -- it looks like quite a challenge to keep the old bank building up while they dig out the foundation.

May I remind some of you that The Empire State--amongst other quite talls--was put up during the Great Depression (The diagram section is your friend)? After 1941, not one tower that I know of rose in the decade + change following.

'Course, after WWII, we started to see the wedding-cake design which came about as, IIRC, the result of zoning laws run slightly amuck. The UN Secretariat finished up in '52 and the rest is indeed history, stable/unstable international banks notwithstanding.

Plenty of guys on site today, I have no doubt they're building this thing, otherwise they're bleeding money for no reason. JDS does not bleed money for no reason. No photos because they're still down in the hole and what's going on can't really be seen, but when it starts rising I'll be posting pics. Keep in mind this is directly next to two subway tunnels and DeKalb station, everything they do down there has to be checked, rechecked and then calculated again for approval.

That's because you've got to go waaaay back to page 27. But it's worth seeing again, always like looking at this tower. We'll be looking at the real thing eventually. But like every other tower we had to wait to watch rise, this one is no different.

Thought I would throw a couple pics up, if only to show the Flatbush entrance to DeKalb Station preserved for integration into the tower base:

I can't remember... did they purchase the air rights over Junior's or could the owners of Junior's develop a tower of their own on that property in the future?

JDS didn't purchase the Junior's air rights.

But I have no doubt those air rights will eventually be used at another project. The site is far too valuable.

How Virtual Reality is Augmenting Realty


By Stefanos Chen
Nov. 8, 2019


Quote:
On a recent tour of 9 DeKalb Avenue, the future site of a 1,066-foot residential tower, soon to be the tallest in Brooklyn, construction workers were still laying the foundation.

Then an associate with SHoP, the architecture firm in charge of design, pointed an iPad toward the hole in the ground and dropped in a true-to-life rendering of the 74-story skyscraper.
Using the iPad like a viewfinder, he was able to track the tower from base to neck-craning spire, showing how the building will relate to its neighbors.

“We can visualize problems that would not be able to be seen from a computer screen,” said Adam Chernick, as he tapped on individual panels of another tower rendering to receive
live updates on the materials used, construction status and dimensions. Mr. Chernick, the research and development lead for A.R. and V.R. with SHoP, has been working closely
with the designers on the augmented reality app.

...“One of the challenges that we face industrywide is communication,” said Michael Jones, a project director with JDS Development Group, the developer. “Having that information get down
all the way to the guy with the tool in his hand in the snow — it’s a difficult game of telephone,” he added, noting that this app should prevent some on-site mistakes,
avoiding the need for expensive remedies.
Quote:
The software will also make it possible to build more difficult designs, said Gregg Pasquarelli, a partner with SHoP, pointing to the complicated
hexagonal geometry of the tower.

So far, the real-world savings are hard to estimate. The on-site crew is not yet using the software, relying instead on about 1,200 pages of 3-by-4-foot paper schematics mandated
by the buildings department, said Foteinos Soulos, a senior associate with SHoP. But the construction workers will get their hands on the app soon and will build the tower
using the software, he said; construction is expected to be completed in late 2021.

“As the building goes up,” Mr. Soulos said, “the app is going to get better.”
