At that height, the design better be inspired. JDS has a thing for Art Deco, hopefully that's what they go for here. This could be downtown Brooklyn's iconic building.

That looks pretty damn tall, like 432 Park ave tall. Given the track record of JDS and shop I have no doubt it will be a great design, and this one out of Manhattan for once.

I mean, lawd, those views. I have to think this is at least 1300-1400 feet! Sure there's a surge in highrise construction in Brooklyn going on, but these views are going to remain unimpeded for a long, long time.

Extell owns the last site at Citypoint that could yield a supertall but I'm not sure if it's as large as this one, but other than that you're right, these views will probably be unchallenged for a while. Really anxious to see how this site turns out.

In that City Realty rendering, does anyone know what the building directly to the right of this building is, with the crown?

I believe that's how they've been envisioning Extell's Citypoint Phase III

Check Out These Insane Views From Brooklyn’s First 1,000+ Foot Tower

Check Out These Insane Views From Brooklyn’s First 1,000+ Foot Tower

Seeing the boroughs from sky-high heights is nothing new thanks to all the supertall towers in Manhattan, but it’s not as common to have a panoramic view of our main island, which is why we had to share this video. JDS Development posted the short clip on their Instagram stream yesterday that shows potential views from their upcoming mixed-use skyscraper planned for Downtown Brooklyn using air rights from the Dime Savings Bank site. If constructed as intended, it will be the first 1,000+ foot tower outside of Manhattan. The nine-second video, whose camera height seems nearly eye-level to the 1,368-foot roof of One World Trade Center, depicts far-reaching, panoramic views to the west and northwest over Manhattan and beyond.

WHOA. That would be astonishing, although where in the hell are they getting that number from? I haven't seen it anywhere.

Holy shit. This would visually appear to be the tallest building in the city from just about any angle, given its relative isolation from other tall buildings. Like ESB back in the day. Would definitely need a killer facade given its simple shape. I'm cautiously optimistic.

Possibly Hunser. There are two supertalls floating in the pipeline that are over 1200' and that are relativly unknown in terms of the details when it comes to renderings and schematics.

One being in Brooklyn, and one in Manhattan. Good chance for Manhattan its the Tishman Spyer site and that it could be over 350m, and... this could be the next one.

The race is on for the next super tall outside Manhattan. Will it be Brooklyn or Jersey City.

SHoP also said they were commissioned to design a Brooklyn supertall, which should be the CityPoint Phase 3. That one is unkown as well, but since CityPoint Phase 2 is nearing completion, we might find out more news about it soon.

I'm hoping this is really that height. Those views at first from their website was a tease. Looks almost eye level to WTC1, which is roughly 1400 ft. I mean, the demand is there, so if they build it, it will fill up over time. Either way, the trend for taller structures outside of Manhattan is definitely happening. Not to long ago that the Williamsburgh Savings Bank was the tallest structure.

Even with Manhattan, there was that whole concept that developers should let the ESB remain king, and building taller would ruin the aesthetics of the skyline. Now, this boom may very well catapult the ESB to the 10th or 11th tallest slot. Unthinkable years ago.

Queens has to be the borough I'm most excited about. LIC is full of activity. So much that riding the 7 train, you;d think your in a new city with all the flashy glass and cranes everywhere.

But it won't stop in Queens. Keep the eyes and ears on whats going on in the Bronx. The next boom hot spot as De Blasios affordable housing plan kicks into high gear. That, and East New York.

JDS is involved here, and they've commissioned SHoP for numerous NYC projects (notably 616 1st Ave and 111 w 57th). I think this will be SHoP's secretive Brooklyn tower.

That's my guess as well. I think we can expect a gem.

Not sure how I feel about 1400+ ft in Brooklyn. I doubt developers can build up enough around it to make it seem contextual even with current levels of demand. Downtown Brooklyn isn't all that big. Still looking forward to more rendering though.

Doesn't matter, this will be the new age Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower. Look, Manhattan doesn't have many tall buildings near the Empire State, in fact, people cry foul when proposals come up close to it, making the case that they'd take away from its prominence. So having a building to anchor a skyline and standout is in no way a hindrance.

I think all boroughs deserve their own 1,400' footers ... and JC too.
