NEW YORK | The Brooklyn Tower (9 DeKalb Ave) | 1,066 FT | 74 FLOORS

Yeah no I was joking about the car door cladding getting stalled. They have been there for as long as I can recall. Sorry, another bad pun.

This is a GREAT shot. I wonder how much longer it’ll take for the right half of the pic to get even 25% as dense as the left half.

that would require infilling the NYCHA lots.

The Brooklyn skyline looks fantastic coming down the FDR Drive by the East Village.

Wonder what JDS’s next home run will be after their 2 iconic towers are completed.

Other than this one, I’d assume the other one you’re referring to is 111 W 57th St, which is already “open”.

But I think once 247 Cherry St starts construction/is approved, it will be JDS and SHoP’s next masterpiece with it’s green striated terra cotta, even with such a simple shape.

Alemel’s photo of the crown on this one looks good from this angle, the other sides make it look flat and the pinnacles not as tall.
