Steel is already coming out of the ground at Flatbush and Myrtle Avenues on the fringe of Downtown Brooklyn, a block from the Oro Condo (the tall building on the left in the background), and it's about to get more friends as a number of 30-40 story buildings get underway in the Flatbush Condo Corridor. The building whose steel is showing will clock in at 34-stories with 240 units. The building is designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, which hasn't released any renderings. The developer wants it to be a "surprise" because it has "an amazing and beautiful facade." No surprises, though, in terms of the designs for the Son of Oro, a 35-story lookalike that will rise to its right or the so-called Alien Spawn of the Flatiron, the Ismael Leyva building that will go up further down Flatbush past the Oro.
