Today we bring you construction updates on two major Brooklyn developments that are set to transform the Downtown area in the coming years. Both updates come courtesy construction site photos by Field Condition, who recently stopped by the sites of 11 Hoyt Street and Brooklyn Point.
The Studio Gang-designed 11 Hoyt is the Chicago-based firm’s first New York City Residential project. Rising next to Downtown Brooklyn’s Macy’s store (which is undergoing a transformation and expansion of its own), the building is currently a little over a dozen stories above ground, and is being fitted with its unique, scalloped facade panels. The Tishman Speyer-developed condo will eventually stand 57-stories tall and bring 481 apartments to the neighborhood. Sales on the apartments launched last month with condos asking from the $600,000s. Construction is expected to wrap in 2020.
Meanwhile, just a little over a block north of here, work is also making progress on Extell’s first Brooklyn condo, Brooklyn Point. Part of the overall City Point development, this condo will bring 485 apartments to the neighborhood. The building will eventually stand 720 feet tall, but at present the Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed condo is about halfway to the top. Sales on this condo also launched this year, with apartments asking from $837,000. The condo will be Brooklyn’s tallest building for a while before it is taken over the by supertall at 9 Dekalb Avenue. Construction on Brooklyn Point is expected to wrap sometime next year.
