NEW YORK | BKLYN Air - Oro II | 123m | 367ft | 35 fl | Com




This long-planned companion to Oro, a downtown Brooklyn residential tower has been through the wringer over the past 5 years.
With a new site owner and architect Ismael Leyva, the 35 story tower has been revived, approved, and is now under construction.

Quote:
Oro 2 permits issued by DOB

The Department of Buildings (DOB) last week approved plans for the Oro 2 site at the corner of Gold and Johnson Streets in Downtown Brooklyn.

First reported on Brownstoner.com, the new tower will be 35 stories, 367 feet tall and will contain 208 residential units, according to the DOB permits approved on July 23.

As Brownstoner noted and the Eagle also reported, this is in line with earlier plans. The architect listed is Ismael Leyva Architects, designer of the existing Oro tower across the street as well as the under-construction 29 Flatbush Ave.

Oro 2 Is Rising

DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN—The original Oro was one of the best selling buildings of 2012, and it's sister tower is now rising from the ground. A tipster sent along the above photo showing the start of the steel frame. Exciting! Plans were approved last summer for a 35-story 208-unit tower by designer Ismael Leyva.

Nice, Oro I sold good so this one will too I guess. It's next to the Manhattan bridge so it has nice views.

Always nice when a project seemingly comes out of nowhere. Brooklyn has a lot of highrises going up right now.

I think that address should be changed to Brooklyn as well as 29 flatbush, 66 rockwell place. It is still New York, but to make a distinction between Brooklyn and Manhattan I think it is important.
