Ratner Rising in Fort Greene

New, 6 comments

Developer Bruce Ratner's Costas Kondylis-designed, 34-story residential tower at 80 DeKalb Avenue is both underway and has gotten a boatload of financing, much of it tax free. "The glass building will join the Forte Condo (at Ashland Place and Fulton Street), and the soon-to-be-built Danspace project across the street to form a small mini-city on the edge of Fort Greene, bordering Downtown Brooklyn -- but a taste of the 16-skyscraper-and-arena Atlantic Yards complex to come." The development, which will have 292 market rate units and 73 affordable ones, has gotten $109.5 million in tax-exempt bonds and $27.5 million in taxable bonds. [TRE]
