Which looks a lot like the landmark American Radiator Building on Bryant Park. A mix of Neo Gothic and Art Deco. Perfect for Gotham, indeed. As will be 340 Flatbush.

A few, but this will be a dominant building

More close-up renders would be amazing, I'm in love with this brave Neo Art Deco tower.

Getting closer to see some action on the site....

JDS Completes Dime Bank Purchase For Brooklyn Supertall
http://m.ny.curbed.com/archives/2015..._supertall.php





Quote:
In order for JDS Development Group to build the new tallest tower outside Manhattan, it had to buy a beautiful, but short bank building next door. Now that has happened. Developers Michael Stern and Joseph Chetrit have completed their purchase of the Dime Savings Bank building at 9 DeKalb Avenue, according to Crain's New York Business. The $90 million purchase will allow the construction of a 1,000-foot-tall building at 340 Flatbush Avenue Extension, right next to Junior's.

The former bank building has 300,000 square feet of unused development rights and that will be transferred to the new tower, which will be designed by SHoP. As for the bank building, it will remain and be converted into retail and restaurant space, but also might serve as an entrance to the tower, the report said.

For a second I thought they were demolishing the building... Thank goodness they're not...

Me too, that'd be an atrocity, but this is amazing news, as it solidifies the perpetual existence of this beautiful old bank, since the supertall will gobble up its air rights.

Probably not the final design but something like that would be nice!. 1000' is a good height cause 1400' would look ridiculous for such a small site that isn't surrounded by high-rises.

I hope this design gets built because currently it's my favorite tower of them all.

Brooklyn, get ready for your first supertall.

This could be roof right, with the crown it could reach 1150'.

I'm really enjoying this art deco revival. Art Deco is God tier architecture.

It's good to see SHoP and JDS continue their appreciation of Gotham Art Deco. Their glass interpretation is hit or miss, but it's better than the cut rate modernism of Central Park Tower.
