BROOKLYN’S FIRST SUPERTALL SKYSCRAPER REVEALED

New York-based SHoP Architects is designing Brooklyn’s first super-tall skyscraper – a spindly structure that will rise 1,000 feet over the downtown district. An image released this week by the local publication YIMBY shows a skinny tower with setbacks at the upper levels. The mixed-use skyscraper will reportedly rise 1,000 feet (305 metres), making it the tallest building in New York outside of Manhattan. The project is slated to be constructed at 340 Flatbush Avenue in downtown Brooklyn, in an area where new buildings rarely rise above 600 feet. The site currently contains the historic Dime Savings Bank, which opened in 1908. Completion is tentatively scheduled for 2019.
