Structural engineering was just contracted out to WSP|Parsons Brinkerhoff. Can't wait to see this one rising.

Should this thread be moved to the active supertall section and labeled as "demo" then?

Definitely under construction now since demo is in progress. From the main New York City Construction thread:

"Demo" still goes in this section. Anyway, they haven't been doing demolition work for a while. They knocked down one building on site about 4-5 months ago but haven't done anything since (no progress since my last post). I think "Prep" is fine.

I really want to picket Junior's and jeer at them for their decision not to sell to JDS. They will be the the dilapidated eyesore under a soaring pomo-nouveau-gothic inspiration. Doesn't help their cause that their cheesecake is, at least to me not even in the same league as other fixtures such as Veniero's in manhattan.

This thing could've been ESB height with their land or at least air rights

Maybe but this is the way the city is. And the little people should have enough power to keep the big people in check also we are getting three maybe four SHoP supertalls so I'm not complaining.

Absolutely stunning tower. Still awhile before we see any vertical action unfortunately.

I couldn't find any new info, except that it's expected to be finished in 2019, according to this link: https://www.bisnow.com/new-york/news...b-avenue-66128.

It's _the_ iconic landmark project for Downtown Brooklyn, fingers crossed it all goes well! Just love the Neo Art Deco of the Flatbush Tower.
