The soon-to-be tallest skyscraper in Brooklyn is now on the verge of truly towering heights. Since YIMBY last visited Brooklyn Point, the concrete has risen 20 additional floors above street level. The installation of several segments of the façade has added another new element, offering a glimpse at the glass and white paneling soon to dominate the borough’s skyline, at least until 9 DeKalb’s imminent rise nearby. Extell is responsible for the development.

Joel Kohn of the Jay Group is listed as responsible for the applications.
Past the historic Brownstones and occasional cobblestone roads in Brooklyn Heights, Quay Tower has found itself the perfect location, nestled between the BQE and the wildly popular Brooklyn Bridge Park. The location will guarantee future residents unfettered views of Downtown Manhattan, the rivers, and even burgeoning Downtown Brooklyn. The project is being developed by a joint venture between RAL Companies, Oliver’s Realty Group, and Vanke US, and today YIMBY has a look at the views across the Harbor from up top.
Permits have been filed for a five-story mixed-use building at 228 Berry Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Brooklyn-based Cornell Realty Management is listed as responsible for the development, and today, YIMBY also has the first look at the design.
