Two-Towered Development Coming to 202-208 Tillary Street, in Downtown Brooklyn
YIMBY has the first word as well as the reveal for a major project planned at 202-208 Tillary Street. The applicants have applied for a rezoning of the site for inclusion within the official Special Downtown Brooklyn District, and the resulting plans are set to allow two connected towers of 23 and 21 floors.
The gross floor area of the residential component would measure 234,316 square feet, with 183 units included between the two towers, 79 of which would be designated as affordable. Another 13,723 square feet would be set aside for ground-floor retail, and there would be 44 parking spaces built for the project as well.
Aufgang Architects is behind the design, which may still see some changes. The proposed version of the development is supposed to be “lower impact” on air quality than a taller possibility, which would replace the 23 and 21-story towers with twin buildings rising 42 floors apiece. However, the renderings and submitted zoning materials seem to indicate that the developers are heavily favoring the shorter plan.
