Been some time since we visited the Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower, AKA One Hanson Place, but it looks like some of the renovations are in the home stretch. Among other things, it means the tallest building in Brooklyn, which is visible from miles away, will lose the black veil and the scaffolding it's been wearing for nearly a year. The Real Deal reports the renovation of the 512-foot, four-faced clock (which previously couldn't tell time) will be "done by the Fourth of July. The penthouses right below the clock, though, won't be ready for occupancy until fall, when move ins are supposed to start. (In fact, the sales director for the condos says the $4.5M-$8.5M penthouses "may take a little longer to sell.") Excellent to know Brooklyn's most priapic building is going to be unsheathed soon.
