Construction Update: 388 Bridge Street Rising, Brooklyn’s Future Tallest

Brooklyn’s future tallest building (though it will hold the title briefly) is now well above ground level, and beginning its advance into the borough’s skyline. The 350-unit tower by SLCE will rise just over 50 stories and actually have a decent amount of bulk to the design, unlike many recent projects in Brooklyn.

At 590 feet in height the tower will snag the borough’s tallest title from the 515-foot Brooklyner, which opened back in 2009. While 388 Bridge will trump the Brooklyner by 75 feet, it too will also be beaten by the Avalon Willoughby Square, rising almost next door. The difference between the two will be quite slim though, as the Avalon tower is expected to rise 596 feet, giving it a mere 6 foot advantage.

All pictures are by NYRebel from Skyscraperpage, who also provided the last update on 388 Bridge Street. Comparing the two updates shows that there has been major progress over the past three months, a pace that should accelerate as the building moves beyond its base–barring bad winter weather, of course. Thanks for the photos!
