That's actually an older design from a few years ago.

When any part of the permanent structure is put in place (usually caissons).

I'm so hyped to see this thing finally takeoff and rise off the ground. Out of all the new towers going up in NYC (which is a LOT) I think this is the biggest deal, as the first supertall in an outer borough.

I hope LIC can get one soon too.

Once preparations are over and they will indeed start pouring, we will make it U/C

A lot of people from BK have been saying that Brooklyn is becoming more and more like Manhattan lately. They usually mean this in a negative way,, but I'm excited about it (except rising rents even more).

But this tower is definitely a tipping point. I'm hoping in the next month or two it'll officially be U/C

A real masterpiece. I'm glad that architects came up with such new projects and not again and again the same blue smooth cladded boxy buildings. This one has character and soul

A true gem of architecture going up here. Can't wait to see this baby rise over the Brooklyn skyline.

This will be among the top 5 best skyscrapers built in the 21st century so far!
At least for me. Neo Art Deco is where my heart clings to.

All the city is changing rapidly. Basically the point is that Manhattan is becoming the place for super rich, while the rich cannot afford it anymore. So they move to the places around Manhattan - like Brooklyn, Jersey City, Queens and etc. Thus they drive the prices of living up and this, in turn, pushes the middle class, that used to live in those places further away. So the result is that all the neighboring cities, especially the ones that have an access to some sort of rail transport are on the rise.

Can't say I like the gold color. Looks tacky or like some supertall out of a dystopian future. Otherwise I'm happy to see some supers in NYC outside of Manhattan.

The attachment to the old bank building is already removed, The facade, that will remain, is supported by a steel structure.

Now they have to tear down the annex building to the left.

According to this article from 2015 the Flatbush Tower will be finished QI 2019 - is that still the schedule?
