Brooklyn Queens Expressway Triple Cantilever, The city is paying $1.9 billion to fix the 1.5-mile stretch of the decrepit expressway between Atlantic Avenue and Sands Street, and kicked off the project with a series of public meetings last summer. In those sessions, the transportation department’s commissioner said design build would accelerate the revamp of the 70-year-old span, which is scheduled to begin in 2024 and end in 2029, but could start as early as 2021 and finish by 2026 if the process is approved.

9 Dekalb, Joining the historic landmarked Brooklyn Dime Savings Bank, a new residential tower at 9 DeKalb will rise 1,066 feet in height to be the tallest tower in Brooklyn upon completion. The 73-story-tower will be clad in glass and bronze and is being designed by collaborators SHoP architects to house over 500 residential units with retail in its base. With its interlocking hexagonal design and rich materiality of bronze and glass, the tower repeats features and patterns of the historic site into a cinematic expression of the rich past and future of Brooklyn.

625 Fulton, Plans to build about 75,000 square feet of ground-floor retail on the site of this $226 million Downtown Brooklyn assemblage, with enough development rights to build a 770,000-square-foot skyscraper.

420 Kent Avenue, 420 Kent’s design strays from the classic commercial extrusion consumed by today’s typical residential towers. The 22 floor towers comprised of 857 apartment units, 20 percent of which will be affordable housing.
