YIMBY recently went on a tour of Jeanne Gang’s 620-foot-tall, 57-story skyscraper at 11 Hoyt Street, which has topped out in Downtown Brooklyn. Tishman Speyer is the developer of the Studio Gang-designed project that will give a bold and unique focal point to the neighborhood’s rapidly transforming skyline. The wavy, bright glass and precast façade is rising fast and will soon form a curtain wall with a distinctive rippling appearance. Edmund Hollander of Hollander Design is in charge of the landscaping for the outdoor green space above the motor courtyard and podium section. Interiors are being designed by Michaelis Boyd Associates and Hill West is the architect of record.

Last week, the state appeals court dismissed an appeal, effectively greenlighting the American Museum of Natural History’s plans for a new educational center on the Upper West Side. According to West Side Rag, the removal of trees outside of the Museum has already begun in preparation for the 230,000-square-foot Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education, and Innovation. The Gilder Center will include new exhibition and learning spaces with state-of-the-art technology and access to the Museum’s world-class collections. The five-story addition to the Museum is designed by Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang Architects with Ralph Appelbaum Associates designing the exhibition experiences, and the Reed Hilderbrand firm responsible for the landscape architecture.
11 Hoyt is quickly ascending over Downtown Brooklyn. The building’s sculptural and wavy facade is also making its way up the sides, and beginning to give the tower its signature look. Designed by Studio Gang Architects with Hill West serving as the architect of record, the project is being developed by Tishman Speyer while Corcoran Sunshine is marketing the residences, with interiors by Michaelis Boyd Associates. The complex will span 770,000 square feet when complete, and boast expansive views of the Downtown Brooklyn skyline and neighboring brownstone-lined streets.
Designed by Studio Gang, the stunning glass facade at 40 Tenth Avenue is now complete. Described as a “solar carve,” the 12-story office building features a chiseled, gem-like curtain wall that was engineered to eliminate shadows.
The outer sculptural facade of 11 Hoyt is beginning to ascend up the building, piece by piece. The 57-story, ground-up skyscraper is being designed by Studio Gang Architects, and Tishman Speyer is the developer of the 770,000 square foot project, located in Downtown Brooklyn. Hill West is the architect of record, while Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is managing sales for the 480 condominiums that are being designed by London-based Michaelis Boyd Associates.
