Do you think they'll ever build Supertalls in brooklyn. Bk has it's own downtown too, is the biggest borough and many people want to live in Bk than the other boroughs

With 3 major airports in the immediate region, I don't know how many supertalls could be built in the outer boroughs due to FAA restrictions. BK is likely to get a 700 footer but beyond that, the economics favor shorter residential towers.

Queens is the biggest borough. Brooklyn has the largest populous. And it's more about Nimby than the FAA. Downtown Brooklyn is a bridge away from lower Manhattan.

The city wants to redevelop the Journal Square area bad. Right now there really isn't anything there besides the PATH station and India Square. I guess this would kickstart it. It's going to put a big strain on the PATH though, it's pretty crowded at rush hour as it is.

Downtown Brooklyn is only across the bridge from downtown Manhattan. 1WTC is like a mile away.

If this is a residential project (I didn't feel like browsing through the entire thread so if it isn't, sorry ) it makes sense that the units will be very expensive since this is so close to Manhattan. 157 and 432 Park ask up to a hundred millions for their top penthouses

These look great. Despite being across the river and outside of NYC, they seem to have a very New York "quality" to them.

Journal Square To Break Ground In 2013

70-story residential tower to break ground at JSQ

‘Game-changing’ residential development coming to transit hub


The city’s weathered Journal Square neighborhood appears to be on track to get a makeover. A week after the City Council gave approval for a new 42-story residential building near Summit Avenue, the Planning Board has similarly blessed the “Journal Squared” development, also known as J2.

According to revised plans presented to the community last week, the KRE Group will build a 1,840-unit residential development behind the Journal Square transit hub on what is currently used as parking for NJ Transit and security personnel.A portion of the development will also occupy what was once a Verizon office building on Summit Avenue.

The project, which will be built in three phases, will ultimately include about 36,000 square feet of retail space and 920 parking spaces. “We’re planning to break ground in 2013 for Phase I,” said KRE Principal Jonathan Kushner, who also built the Grove Pointe development downtown. “I can’t project how long it will take to build Phase II and Phase III. But our plan is to complete Phase I within the next 36 months. That means we expect to be built and leased within 36 months.”
