A local development team is in pursuit of amendments to existing zoning ordinances to facilitate the construction of a three-building development in Borough Park, Brooklyn. Located on a multi-lot assemblage at 1501-1555 60th Street, the complex would replace a cluster of low-rise properties including a small medical office, warehouses, an automotive shop, minor residential properties, and associated parking areas.
Alloy Development‘s 46-unit residential conversion project at 168 Plymouth Street is taking shape in the DUMBO, Brooklyn Historic District following approvals from the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The steel structure of the addition is being assembled atop the 99-year-old Concrete Daylight Factory, aka 42 Jay Street. Simultaneously, the adjacent 129-year-old Brick & Timber Building, aka 50 Jay Street, is also getting a one-story expansion.
Installation of the curtain wall has begun at One Willoughby Square, aka 420 Albee Square, in Downtown Brooklyn. The first row of industrial-style glass panels is now in place on the second floor of the 34-story, 495-foot-tall reinforced concrete skyscraper, joining the other windows already installed on the eastern and northern elevations. Designed by FXCollaborative and developed by JEMB Realty, the topped-out project currently holds the title of the tallest new office building in Brooklyn, and will yield 500,000 square feet of Class A office space. Gilbane Building Company is in charge of construction.
Construction is getting close to topping out at 260 Gold Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by J Frankl Associates and developed by Gold Street Realty Holdings, the 13-story residential project will yield 194,089 square feet divided among 286 units, for an average of 689 square feet apiece.
Work is entering the final stretch on Jeanne Gang’s 620-foot-tall, 57-story residential skyscraper at 11 Hoyt Street in Downtown Brooklyn.

Meanwhile, the podium and entry areas are beginning to take shape on the residential building, which is developed by Tishman Speyer and designed by Studio Gang, with Hill West Architects as the architect of record. Edmund Hollander of Hollander Design is in charge of landscaping for the outdoor green space above the motor courtyard, while Michaelis Boyd Associates is leading the interior design for the residential units.
