This will be the second tallest building in Brooklyn after The Brooklyn Dime Savings Bank Tower at 9 DeKalb.

Massive Downtown Brooklyn project will include 900 apartments, schools, cultural space

The triangular site that’s bound by Third, State, and Schermerhorn streets and Flatbush Avenue will be built out over two phases. In addition to a 38-story residential building, the first phase will include two schools—a 350-seat elementary school and a new 350-seat location for the site’s existing Khalil Gibran International Academy
[...]
Alloy plans to convert the existing Khalil Gibran Academy—the former Civil War infirmary—into a 15,000-square-foot cultural facility that Alloy hopes will act as an extension of the BAM Cultural District across Flatbush Avenue.
[...]
The second of the site’s buildings that will be preserved in the new complex is at the corner of Third Avenue and Schermerhorn Street. The late 19th-century building will give way to retail space for the neighborhood and amenity space for the residential occupants.
[...]
In addition to the 38-story, 480-foot tower of phase one, the plan calls for a 74-story, 920-foot tower that will be home to market rate apartments, the complex’s 200 below-market rate apartments, and office space. This will be part of the project’s second phase, which is expected to be complete by 2025.

phase one has been redesigned. Expect more changes as this project has to go through ULURP. Looks like it might be over 500' in comparison to the Bank Tower

New Renderings for 74-Story 80 Flatbush, in Downtown Brooklyn

A redesign of the 38-story triangular tower, part of Phase One of Construction, was the most noticeable consequence of the review. The profile was slimmed, and a series of setbacks were included along State Street, to mimic the neighboring Williamsburgh Savings Bank.

With inspiration from the historic tower, an identically-colored masonry façade element will be included on the ground floor. For pedestrians, the project removed a loading dock and implemented a lower-scale street wall on State Street. The tower will include residential, office, and retail space.

one hoop cleared

City Planning Commission Approves Big Brooklyn Project at 80 Flatbush

The vote was unanimous, with one commissioner abstaining and a second recusing herself.
The development drew plenty of opposition from neighborhood groups, activists and local politicians during a lengthy hearing at Brooklyn Borough Hall in May, but it also received supportive testimony from pro-development groups, transportation advocates, labor unions and civic organizations.

The project heads to the City Council zoning subcommittee for a vote next week, followed by the council land use committee. The full council has to vote on the proposal by the end of September. Councilman Steve Levin oversees the district in which the property sits and has the final say over whether Alloy and ECF get their rezoning.

the height didn't survive this hoop.

Brooklyn’s 80 Flatbush gets crucial City Council committee approval

The developers agreed to reduce the floor area ratio (FAR) from 18—which would have made it one of the city’s most dense projects—to 15.75; they also agreed to shave some height from the two skyscrapers that will dominate the development. A proposed 986-foot supertall will now stand 840 feet, and the second tower will shrink from 560 to 510 feet.

100 Flatbush is expected to be fully completed by 2023 and will debut as phase one of 80 Flatbush. The second phase includes construction of a 69-story tower that will contain a mix of residential, office, and retail areas. The final phase comprises the rehabilitation of two aging structures at 362 Schermerhorn, the former home of the Khalil Gibran International Academy high school.
