Construction on the future Ace Hotel at 266 Schermerhorn Street is now making substantial progress, with the building reaching the halfway mark, as seen in the latest photos from Tectonic. Located in Downtown Brooklyn between the Hoyt-Schermerhorn and Nevins St subway line, the new 13-story hotel is designed by Roman and Williams Buildings and Interiors, and is being developed by GFI Hospitality and GFI Development Company.
Permits have been filed for a five-story mixed-use building at 491 Baltic Street in Boerum Hill, by the border with Gowanus, Brooklyn.

Development is underway for a new high-rise in Brooklyn Heights. It has been less than a year since the old Brooklyn Heights branch of the Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) was demolished, at 280 Cadman Plaza West. Work has progressed swiftly since, and thanks to images from Tectonic, we can confirm the new skyscraper has reached its second floor, with foundation work now apparently complete.
