luxury living in the skies

the official launch of sales at the brooklyn tower


the team at JDS development elaborates on the SHoP architects-designed tallest brooklyn tower as sales officially launch, noting that 150 condominiums ranges from approximately $875,000 for studio residences to approximately $8 million for four-bedrooms. the for-sale offering will also include a limited number of penthouses at its crown, to be released later this year.


the mixed-use tower will feature over 120,000 square feet of state-of-the-art amenities and over 100,000 square feet of retail at its base — including the dime savings bank of brooklyn, one of brooklyn’s most prominent landmarked buildings, which is being restored as flagship retail. leasing for the building’s rental residences, located below the condominiums, will commence this summer.

arriving at the tower


the brooklyn tower features two residential entrances and lobbies — fleet street and flatbush avenue extension — designed by krista ninivaggi of woods bagot in collaboration with shop architects. the fleet street entrance creates a dramatic passageway to the tower’s main lobby through a portion of the beautifully restored marble colonnade of the landmarked bank building.


inside the fleet street entrance is a beautiful double-height atrium, featuring white oak walls cut into a sculptural pattern that riff off the shape of the tower’s façade, while cream and white hexagonal floors beautifully evoke the geometry of the dime savings bank’s landmarked interior. wood millwork, bronzed mirrored surfaces, and bespoke furnishings create an immediate sense of serenity and an arrival experience that transports residents away from the hustle and bustle of the city. additional ground level amenities will include a 24-hour doorman, valet services, rideshare lounge and coffee station.

the interiors by gachot studios


gachot studios conceptualized the interiors for the brooklyn tower residences in a unique palette that plays off the tower’s materiality in an elegant and restrained manner. highly considered residential layouts leverage the building’s unparalleled vantage points and distinctive hexagonal form to maximize the transcendent city and water views through floor-to-ceiling windows, with many residences boasting multiple exposures.


an intimate and tranquil interior experience is achieved through warm, richly layered finishes and custom design elements such as hexagonal mosaic flooring (in a subtle nod to the landmark) antique rubbed bronze detailing, and rich mahogany. a wood door in a custom mahogany finish is complemented by a brass sconce and absolute black granite threshold, providing a warm and welcoming entry experience. living spaces feature soaring 11-foot ceiling heights and european white oak flooring in an elegant honey stain.
