Work has taken a big step forward at 9 DeKalb Avenue, the outer boroughs’ first supertall skyscraper and number seven on YIMBY’s countdown of the tallest projects underway in New York City. The construction crane has been assembled at the Downtown Brooklyn site and things are gearing up for the start of vertical progress in 2020. The 73-story, 1,066-foot-tall tower is designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS, the same duo behind 111 West 57th Street.
Construction is nearing completion at 211 Schermerhorn Street in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. Exterior work is essentially finished, with only the ground floor and second story awaiting curtain wall installation. The 14-story residential project is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and is being developed by Oestreicher Properties and GPB Capital Holdings, LLC, which purchased the site for $30 million in 2017. Inside are 48 units ranging from one- to three-bedroom homes.
