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.
Located at the confluence of Clinton Street and Cadman Plaza West and standing directly in front of One Pierrepont Plaza’s postmodern red and white facade, One Clinton Street, aka 280 Cadman Plaza West, is on the rise in Brooklyn Heights, on its way to a 409-foot-high pinnacle with 36 floors within. The tower is being designed by Marvel Architects and developed by Hudson Companies.
Across the harbor from Manhattan, Quay Tower has been quietly and steadily rising. The 28-story condominium project at the southern edges of Brooklyn Bridge Park has recently topped out, and the façade is now eight stories above street level. The official address will be 50 Bridge Park Drive in Brooklyn Heights. The building is being developed through a joint venture with RAL Companies, Oliver’s Realty Group, and Vanke US.
A new close-up rendering has been revealed of the Brooklyn Bridge Park condominium project, now officially known as Quay Tower. The 28-story building will be located at the southern end of Pier 6, in Brooklyn Bridge Park, along the East River. The project, designed by ODA Architecture’s Eran Chen, will offer residents permanently unobstructed views of the Manhattan skyline, New York Harbor, East River, as well as the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges.
The city of New York has two new individual landmarks. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission voted to designate the buildings at 181 Montague Street and 185 Montague Street in Brooklyn. The move extended the preservation of the borough’s banking history.
