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.
