I think it's the perfect height for DT Brooklyn. It's definitely gonna stand out but won't look too outta place.

This building looks absolutely gorgeous! Love at first sight. Kinda reminds me of The Pinnacle in Guangzhou.

Sorry, I'm going to buck the trend here and say I don't care for the new renderings. The original ones were nice enough, but the contrast in the cladding is gone now, and the crown has been simplified. The new version is rather bizarre looking (dark brown cladding isn't easy to pull off) and less aesthetic. Still not bad, but it has definitely dropped a couple notches for me.

Great design! Being a rental tower there should be little holding this back financially if a global crisis was to happen.

I agree. 2000ft would be way too tall compared to its neighbors.

Gorgeous! Too bad every other highrise in this area looks terrible.

Some details of the lower floors, shows what a great job SHOP did at incorporating it to the Dimes Savings Bank building.

Also seems that approval for the alterations might be easier than I expected, good news.

Community Board 2 committee gives thumbs-up to development combining Brooklyn's tallest tower and landmarked Dime Savings Bank
http://www.brooklyneagle.com/article...oklyns-tallest

Quote:
...
Gregg Pasquarelli of SHoP Architects showed the renderings to Community Board 2's Land Use Committee at a meeting Wednesday night at NYU Tandon School of Engineering's Dibner Building.

In order to build the glamorous tower design, two annexes of the neo-Classical bank at 9 DeKalb Ave. must be demolished, one of them five stories tall, another a single story in height, he said.

Also, SHoP Architects' design calls for the removal of tellers' counters from the banking hall.

After expressing enthusiasm for the skyscraper design, the community board committee voted to approve the planned modifications to the stunning former savings and loan building, whose fašade is ringed with columns. It combines ancient Greek and Roman design elements, and resembles a temple.
...
The banking hall at 9 DeKalb Ave. — which was occupied until last year by a J.P. Morgan Chase branch — will become a retail space, Pasquarelli said at the CB2 meeting.

In his presentation, he called the tower design “a series of interlocking hexagons.”

The proposed tower's construction materials are inspired by the landmarked bank building, but with a slightly different palette: White marble, crystal gray vision glass, bronzed metal and blackened stainless steel.

The tower's glass fašade will be overlaid with “tubes” of stone and metal, Pasquarelli said, that are visual references to the columns on the bank.

The Dime building needs a lot of restoration work, including the removal of ATM buildouts on the bank's portico that faces Albee Square.

Architectural conservator Richard Pieper, who also spoke at the community board meeting, said repairs will be made to the marble fašade, which is cracked.

This looks amazing. If it goes through it will probably be my favorite of all the new NYC skyscrapers... and it will be right up there in the ranks of Woolworth and Chrysler.

I've said it before, but it bears repeating: SHoP's greatness lies not just in their bold designs, but in their respect for the architectural heritage of their surroundings, and ability to pay homage without becoming dowdy or embarrassingly postmodern.

Amen to that. Wish some architects would take a page from them (ahem BIG)

Could not agree more. Add Steinway Tower to the list and you would have New York City's four best skyscrapers.
