Not quite yet. That piling is not for the building as such. They said is soldier piling, meaning piles build close to each other in order to make a retaing wall. So they are building this retaing wall first, as they are excavating to make the basement levels and then begin building the fundations for the actual building.

Also, they have to demolish the part of the building shown in this picture (facing Flatbush Ave) that is on the footprint of the tower.

Now they are working on the site of the already demolished one story building at the corner of Flatbush and Fleet. They still have to demolish the wing facing Flatbush Ave, between the cleared plot and Junior's.

Yes part of footprint of the base of the tower seems to be where that building facing Flatbush is, but most of the tower footprint (the overwhelming majority, it seems) is where they have excavated and piled (presumably for retaining wall purposes, as you mentioned). Just wanted to clarify for those who weren't familiar

proposals for tower cranes are being processed by the FAA, this tower will be rising sooner rather than later.

https://oeaaa.faa.gov/oeaaa/external...705384&row=102

https://oeaaa.faa.gov/oeaaa/external...705398&row=115

also, could this be renamed 9 DeKalb - Brooklyn Dimes Savings Bank Tower? This tower is on Flatbrush Ave Extension, not in the Flatbrush neighborhood, and JDS is using the old building as an identifier.

Would you actually consider Brooklyn part of the "City" ?

In general, people from the suburbs call the four core boroughs "the city" and people from the outer-boroughs call Manhattan "the city"

It could be at the foot of the Goethals bridge, it's still New York City.

I know that, which is the reason I put "City" in quotation marks. I was under the impression that the term "the City" referred exclusively to Manhattan. In any case, streetscapeer already clarified the issue.
