Downtown Brooklyn's new skyscrapers: They're so hot right now! The world needs more of them, and developers are ready to oblige. Today the Brooklyn Eagle talks up a trio of Brooklyn residential projects that just received state funding in exchange for including affordable housing, and two are long-stalled DoBro high-rises. First we have 388 Bridge Street, a toxic little address near Willoughby Street that is not to be confused with developer AvalonBay's taller tower plan (which sports a similar design) across the street. We're looking at 49 floors and 234 rentals on this one.
Next up is 29 Flatbush Avenue, at Nevins Street near BAM, which is a long-in-the-works project from the Dermot Company. The latest plan calls for 44 floors and 333 rentals, though Dermot's website still says it will be 42 stories. As for the designs, well, neither is going to challenge Toren for the title of DoBro's craziest.
