Work is continuing on the topped-out Brooklyn Tower, a 1,066-foot residential supertall at 9 DeKalb Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn and number six on our December countdown. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS, the 93-story tower holds the title of the tallest structure in the Outer Boroughs and will yield a total of 550 residences, with 150 for purchase, as well as a 100,000-square-foot retail podium bound by Flatbush Avenue Extension to the northeast, Fleet Street to the northwest, and DeKalb Avenue to the south. The Brooklyn Tower complex also includes the refurbishing and repurposing of the landmarked Dime Savings Bank of Brooklyn, which is being incorporated into the podium. Douglas Elliman is serving as the exclusive marketing, sales, and leasing agent. Thirty percent of rentals are designated as affordable housing units, and residences for purchase start over 500 feet above street level.
