32-Story Tower Coming to 86 Fleet Place, Downtown Brooklyn



Downtown Brooklyn’s Myrtle Avenue has seen major changes in recent years, with construction already underway or complete on the first parts of Red Apple Group’s master plan, which includes residential buildings at 180 and 160 Myrtle. Now, filings are up for the last and largest component, and a 32-story residential tower will soon rise at 86 Fleet Place.

The site is located across the street from 160 Myrtle Avenue, and height will be its distinguishing characteristic; per the new building permits, 86 Fleet Place will stand 346 feet tall, placing it just short of Toren, right next door.

Surrounding blocks have seen a surge in new development, and the project is located just off of Flatbush Avenue Extension, which will soon have the tallest buildings in all of Brooklyn. JDS Development’s 340 Flatbush Ave. Ext and the last phase of City Point — to be developed by Extell — are both just a few blocks away, and the neighborhood is rapidly evolving into a pedestrian-friendly and attractive node.

86 Fleet Place will contribute to this continued positive change, and the tower’s base will have 10,619 square feet of commercial space. Above, 384,239 square feet will be dedicated to residential use, split between 191 units. The average apartment size will be surprisingly generous for Brooklyn, at roughly 2,000 square feet, though per Dattner’s page on the project, it will be rentals.

Dozens of new towers are seemingly under construction in Downtown Brooklyn, but 86 Fleet Place’s advantage — in terms of prominence — is its location at the edge of the neighborhood. This should guarantee continued visibility, and relatively unobstructed views.
Goldstein Hill & West is listed as the architect of record, though Dattner appears to be designing, and Red Apple Group is owned by John Catsimatidis.

==============================





At 350 feet high and nearly 400,000 square feet in size, 86 Fleet will be the development’s tallest and largest building by far. The master plan, drafted by Dattner Architects, called for the four buildings to progressively grow in height as one moves westward from low-rise Fort Greene to the high-rises of MetroTech Center and Downtown Brooklyn. Two rental properties have already been completed, the nine-story Andrea and the 15-story Giovanni. A third rental at 180 Myrtle is currently underway and has recently topped out. The full plan will provide nearly 1,000 units under a 50-30-20 plan; 50 percent of the units will be market rate, 30 percent designated for middle-income affordable, and 20 percent for low-income affordable.

86 Fleet’s architects, Goldstein Hill & West, have crafted a design markedly different in appearance compared to its three blockier, masonry-clad siblings to the east. Most notably, the corner of Fleet Place and Myrtle will be anchored by a curved, fully glazed section that culminates as a cylindrical capstone at the the tower’s apex. A single-story podium provides retail storefronts at the base, and well proportioned setbacks (four along narrow Fleet Place and three along Myrtle Avenue) propel the somewhat stodgy massing skyward. Additionally, lines of glass balconies break up the tower’s uniform skin.

Building amenities will include 143 parking spaces, a fitness center, residents’ lounge, children’s playroom, and a common terrace. Though delivery of 86 Fleet’s 440 rentals units is more than a year away, its market-rate prices will be comparable to several new Downtown Brooklyn rental towers in the area such as the Avalon Fort Greene, Ava DoBro, and 388 Bridge Street, where studios start from $2,643, one-bedrooms from $3,200, and two-bedrooms from $4,995.

The whole place around Flatbush avenue will be like Manhattan in terms of prices soon enough...

On one had gentrification is all good. But on the other... what all these people will do and to where they will go...
