Jeanne Gang’s first residential tower in New York, 11 Hoyt, topped out this week at 620 feet after launching sales last fall. The 57-story building located in front of Macy’s in Downtown Brooklyn, will have 481 condos ranging between $695,000 for a studio and $4.35 million for a four-bedroom unit.
Developed by Tishman Speyer with Hill West as the architect of record, the tower has a scalloped facade with large windows, which not only shape the structure externally but provide a bay seating area to most apartments. The facade is made out of blocks manufactured in Canada and brought in from New Jersey, two at a time, and then lifted into the structure.
At a Monday event, Gang spoke about the building’s design. “One of the things that we worked hard on was achieving a very smooth curvature in two dimensions,” she said. “That movement, that kind of lyrical rhythm of the facade, gives the units different views and differences between them even if you’re on the same floor.”
The condo’s interiors were designed by Michaelis Boyd Associates. The apartments’s ceilings will be at least 10-foot-high and offer sweeping views to Brooklyn, lower Manhattan, and the East River.
The building will have a ton of amenities including a private park, a “Sky Club,” private meeting rooms, a performance space, a private dog park and a dog spa. The 27,000-square-foot private park was designed by Hollander Design Landscape Architects.
