Demolition is now complete at the adjacent sites of 80 Flatbush Avenue and 100 Flatbush Avenue in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. The narrow plot of 80 Flatbush Avenue will eventually give rise to an 840-foot-tall skyscraper while the triangular lot of 100 Flatbush Avenue will be the future home a 482-foot-tall mixed-use building, both part of a multi-structure mixed-use complex from Alloy Development. Architecture Research Office is the designer of the complex, located on a site bound by Flatbush Avenue, State Street, Third Avenue, and a small sliver of Schermerhorn Street.
Recently Alloy Development has unveiled plans to construct what will be one of New York City’s most sustainable mixed-use developments. Located at 100 Flatbush Avenue, the residential portion of the tower will be 100 percent electric, or fossil fuel independent, a first for the increasingly carbon neutral city.
Architectural photographer Tectonic recently checked in on the progress at 80 Flatbush Avenue in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. Demolition is underway to clear the site for the construction of a multi-structure development that will include one of the borough’s tallest skyscrapers. A large assembly of scaffolding and black netting shrouds what remains of the original brick structure that is being dismantled floor by floor. Last year the City Council approved the project, which had a reduction in size and scale and a redesign of the largest tower. Alloy Development is the developer of the complex, which is located on a triangular plot bound by Flatbush Avenue, State Street, Third Avenue, and a small sliver of Schermerhorn Street.
The City Council has unanimously approved the controversial 80 Flatbush project in Boerum Hill after a reduction in size and scale. While the drop in density is not ideal, the the buildings will still be a large player for the housing market and community at large, and will punctuate the neighborhood’s skyline with two new towers that appear both prominent and promising in terms of design.
Alloy Development’s plans for 80 Flatbush Avenue will eventually yield two residential towers, the larger of which will extend 74 floors and 920 feet into the Downtown Brooklyn skyline. But before construction can begin, the developers covered the existing structures in a mural starting back in September. Now, work on the art piece has wrapped up, as seen in the latest photos of the site from Tectonic.
