When permits were filed a few weeks ago for the latest building by developer/grocery store mogul/perpetual mayoral candidate/sender of awesome Christmas cards John Catsimatidis, the 32-story residential building had yet to be revealed, but today, New York YIMBY shares the first renderings of the tower. Unsurprisingly, it looks like all of the other towers going up in Downtown Brooklyn: blue and glassy. The building is the fourth and final addition to Catsimatidis' string of structures along Myrtle Avenue, and while the first three (and the master plan) were designed by Dattner Architects, this one is designed by Goldstein Hill & West. It's located at 86 Fleet Place, a site bound by Myrtle Avenue, Fair Street, and Prince Street, and it will have 440 apartments; the developer told YIMBY that the number of units listed on the building permits, 191, is incorrect.
The four-building development has been in the works for about a decade. The first building, the Andrea, opened in 2010, and the second building, 81 Fleet Place, is under construction. The third building, 180 Myrtle Avenue, is also in progress.
