NEW YORK | The Hub | 172m | 563ft | 53 fl | Prep

Behold The Hub, A 52-Story Residential Tower Planned For Downtown Brooklyn

The Steiner family, which operates a successful film and TV production studio at the Brooklyn Navy Yards, today revealed the renderings for a massive residential tower planned for downtown Brooklyn. It will be called The Hub, and is to be built at 333 Schermerhorn Street, at the intersection of Third Avenue and Flatbush Avenue. Douglas Steiner paid $30 million for the property, and plans to break ground early next year. 80 percent of the rental units will go at market rates—a 1,000-square-foot apartment would rent for $3,333 to $4,166 a month—while 20 percent of the units (144 in all) will be rented as "affordable" units.

Highlights, according to a press release, will include a 24-hour concierge, a giant landscaped common outdoor terrace with sundeck, a fully-equipped fitness center, yoga studio, locker rooms, a dog run, and a grilling terrace. Residents will enjoy multiple lounges and bike storage for every unit, and each residence will be pre-wired for cable, phone and high-speed internet connections. The project will also include retail space and parking for over 250 vehicles.

"Essentially the center of Brooklyn is moving south and east of downtown," says Steiner. "We love this location. We're a short block or two from twelve subway lines and the LIRR. We'll have spectacular views, great layouts and an iconic presence on the skyline. And we're at the hub of so many great Brooklyn neighborhoods." Realtor Timothy King predicts the project will rent very quickly as long as long as the economy "stays on track," telling the Wall Street Journal, "The other challenges is that if the market takes a further nose dive. I think we turned the corner in that regard."

Good for Brooklyn. Should be at least 600'.

And btw I think Downtown Brooklyn has a bright future, projects like this one are just the beginning of a major highrise boom.

Already three others announced earlier this year, two of which will be taller than the Williamsburg Savings Bank. Brooklyn is on a roll!

Nice! I'm just waiting for a signature tower (City Point anyone?) which will break the 800ft mark so it will be visible on the skyline. Btw what's currently the tallest in Brooklyn?

I see, although CTBUH and other sources say that the WSBB is 512ft tall. So the Brooklyner at 515ft is the tallest building in Brooklyn right now.

This would really look like a nice addition to Downtown Brooklyn's skyline. The skyline is very dated compared to their neighbor, LIC

So if things go well there should be three buildings taller then the Brooklyner all rising next year. Good to know it will (likely) have a short reign as the highest in Brooklyn.

The other two are fairly plain(still better than Brooklyner), but I actually quite like this one, nice build up to the crown.
