This phase is in the wrong thread. It should be in "highrise". Definitely, not over 500 feet.

Wow, this is interesting for me. I'll go there in a recent time with my darling . I imagine that it look like keangnam landmark in Ha Noi where I still stay for 4 years. Thanks for your attractive production.

Nice. I like how Brooklyn is developing its own style of skyscrapers, despite being so close to NY.

PS. I used to work at the site of the tall building being built on the left (333 Schermerhorn St.) back then it was known as 350 Livingston St. That was only 6 years ago, six of the towers in this picture didn't exist back then.


Still waiting for 340 Flatbush Ave.

Just got my first job offer out of college about a block away from here, so looks like I'll be getting to know this building real well.

Brooklyn to lead country in 2016 apartment construction
http://therealdeal.com/blog/2015/12/...-construction/

Quote:
People want to live in Brooklyn, and developers are responding in force, with more units slated to come online in the borough in 2016 than in any other U.S. submarket. Brooklyn is expected to see a total of 6,073 new residential added next year, a more than six-fold jump from the 969 units added in 2015, according to research firm Axiometrics, in a post on Forbes. That total places Kings County at number one in the country, followed by the Atlanta/Fulton submarket, which will add 5,606 new units, and the Montrose/River Oaks part of Houston, which will add 4,820. It’s a good thing, because existing apartments in Brooklyn were 97.4 percent occupied as of October, with demand (and rent) continuing to grow, according to Axiometrics. Midtown West, as it happens, appeared in fourth place, with 4,387 units on tap, more than 10 times its 2015 total. The Hudson Waterfront also made the list, with 2,997 units on tap. The figures are part of a general building boom. The New York City area, including Jersey City and White Plains, will add a total of 24,575 new units in 2015. [Forbes]

Nice growth but most buildings ugly, let's face it. Downtown Brooklyn looking like it could be anywhere in the urban world with so many generic plastic looking rental towers. Not enough glass towers and cheap cladding is rife

That's the unfortunate part. Brooklyn is known for it's character. I've heard many people who don't pay attention to architecture complain about the same thing. The new buildings are 'ugly' 'boring' and 'look cheap' they have said.

Uhhhh City Point is the antithesis of dull or ugly. I think it's very NY and timeless, while being classy and interesting. I do however agree that most of the other development is uninspiring in Brooklyn, especially in great contrast to Manhattan, where such high quality development is coming up. I think the problem is Brooklyn operates on smaller margins, and is full of rental buildings. I don't need to tell you, but people aren't exactly picking where they rent based on aesthetic appeal of the exterior. And as a result, developers invest less in making it look nice. To begin to see high quality architecture, three things are needed: office tower construction, condo construction, or very high-end rental construction.

I'm not disagreeing that the buildings going up in Brooklyn and Queens are bland but let's remember that highrises in the outer boroughs, especially those 2 are a new thing.
Besides, it's not like the majority of people moving there are the kind of wealty people we see it Manhattan so there's no strong incentive for a developer to spend more on design.
Now if the boom in those boroughs keeps up, I wouldn't be surprised to see a few gems going up at some point, we're getting the hint with 340 Flatbush.
Bottom line is, we're not talking about Manhattan here so the amount of activity i see in DoBro and LIC are good enough for me for now.
