Downtown Brooklyn’s Hub has been making rapid progress over the past year, and Curbed has now learned that leasing will get underway on the borough’s tallest building in January next year. Accompanying this news are several new renderings of the 55-story building that’s being developed by Steiner NYC.
News about the market-rate apartments follows less than a month after the lottery for the 150 affordable units at the tower got underway. The 610-foot rental contains a total of 750 apartments in studio, one, and two-bedroom configurations. There’s also a penthouse collection, but pricing on the market-rate units hasn’t been released yet.
The new renderings give us a glimpse into the plethora of amenities this Dattner Architects-designed building has to offer including the 75-foot, the gym, and the landscaped outdoor deck. Other amenities here include a dog park, an indoor and outdoor movie screens, a yoga studio, grilling cabanas, and a children’s playroom. In total that’s about 40,000-square-feet of amenities.
Originally scheduled to be complete in 2014, the building finally went vertical after some delays last year and construction work has progressed steadily since. Hub topped out at 610-feet earlier this year unseating the towers at 338 Bridge Street and 100 Willoughby Street to become the borough’s tallest. It will eventually be surpassed by the City Point Tower 3, and the supertall at 9 Dekalb Avenue.
The teaser site for Hub, which is now live, gives a sense of what the views will be like for residents of the building, many of whom will have floor-to-ceiling windows in their apartments.
