The 56-story tower in Downtown Brooklyn, known as the Hub, is soon set to be the tallest building in the borough, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports. Once complete, the building, which is being developed by Douglas Steiner, will be 610-feet tall thereby surpassing the nearby 338 Bridge Street and AVA DoBro at 100 Willoughby Street.
Tectonic recently uploaded images of the construction site and it looks the building is set to top out very soon. Steiner told the Eagle that there only five floors still left to build.
Once complete, the Dattner Architects-designed building will feature 750 apartments, of which 150 will be affordable. The building will also include 32,000 square feet of retail.
"We love Schermerhorn Street because it's sunny, quiet and wide, plus we face a park and a beautiful landmarked church," Steiner told the Eagle.
Residents will begin moving into the building sometime in the fall of 2016, Steiner informed the Eagle.
The Hub doesn't have long to rest on its laurels however with several rivals ready to claim the "tallest building in the borough" title in the offing.
