Rendering Reveal: JDS's Record-Setting Supertall in Brooklyn


There’s a rendering out for JDS Development’s skyline-altering residential tower at 340 Flatbush Ave Ext in Downtown Brooklyn. It’ll be the first building in NYC outside of Manhattan to reach supertall status (1,000 feet or taller).

New renderings released by SHoP Architects show a design that looks similar to SHoP’s 111 West 57th St, also a JDS project, NY YIMBY reports. That building’s 24:1 height-to-width ratio will break a world record when it’s built. The design for the Brooklyn project calls for a slender tower too, but only about half as narrow relative to its width.

The building will have 466k SF of residential space divvied up for 550 units over 90 floors. A 140k SF retail component’s also part of the design, and since JDS owns the landmarked Dime Savings Bank building right next to the future site of the tower, it’s fair to surmise that space will be used all or partly for high-end retail. The project’s tentatively scheduled for completion in Q1 '19. [NYY]
