NEW YORK | 11 Hoyt Street | 202m | 664ft | 51 fl | Prep

Nobody has really posted anything about this (from what I saw) but I only saw 1 thread about this, which nobody responded to, so I'm just gonna start a new thread about this, and if this gets built, it will be the tallest building in Brooklyn (if it gets completed before 9 DeKalb Avenue), anyways, here's the article:

Text of the article:

LEESER Architecture dreams up an 80-story supertall for Downtown Brooklyn Macy’s site

POSTED ON THU, AUGUST 18, 2016 BY DANA SCHULZ

In April, initial details were released about Downtown Brooklyn‘s Macy’s $100 million interior makeover, which included new columns, fluted ceilings, metal and glass entrance canopies, and video screens surrounding the escalators. This came after Tishman Speyer inked a $170 million deal with the department store in January, in which they’ll remodel the 11-story Art Deco building’s top five floors into offices. As part of the deal, Tishman also took control of the connecting Hoyt Street parking garage, a site that was speculated may give way to a supertall, mixed-use tower. Today, CityRealty.com posted a set of renderings from architecture firm LEESER showing a glassy tower rising from the existing department store. Although it is not the design being considered by Tishman Speyer, it does give us a taste of the type of modern development that could climb from the coveted DoBro address.

For the Fulton Street site, the LESSER devised a 910-foot, 80-story tower that would rise atop the 1865 Macy’s building, along with two glassy 390-foot high rises for the garage site. The 1.2 million-square-foot main tower would have 230 condos and 468 rentals, while the towers to the east would have 248 condos, 308 rentals, 200,000 square feet of retail space, and a public plaza.

LESSER’s design would preserve Macy’s existing Art Deco-style facade and allow the store to remain open during construction, which would have been welcome news considering the company recently announced it will be closing 100 of its 675 department stores across the country.

Officially, work on the existing structure is expected to be completed by the fall of 2018; no word yet on what the design to follow will be.

This tower is what happens when you take 2 WTC, shorten it and add a pinch of even more ugly.

It's only a concept, thankfully. Surely theyll come up with something much better than that.
The Macys building is huge, worked there as a teen. Entire sections of the building are closed off and abandoned, preserved in time with artifacts and items from decades past. Really eerie but fascinating.


Im just happy to see that hideous garage go. I always pictured a skyscraper on that lot. Hopefully someone gets around to demolishing the garage that houses the ihop a couple blocks down aswell

They are in the process of a massive renovation on the Macy's store and had better not demolish the store portion. Some of the other sections need to go as they have been long abandoned and all historic detailing has been ripped off long ago. This could be an awesome tower if they do it right.

This kinda reminds me of a mesh between 2 WTC and the Central Park Tower.

I like tall, slender towers, but that step cantilever should go.

I find this design ugly, and it seems most people here dislike this design as well. What is curious is that architects seem to find it beautiful, why is that?

the store will receieve a 10 story addition. The garage site at 11 Hoyt Street is what we should keep an eye out for.

Macy's was my least favorite thing I visited in New York City, glad to see they make something out of that area still. It is in a really good location after all
