The project also includes a 38-story structure, two new schools and two 19th century commercial buildings repurposed as cultural venues.

80 Flatbush Brooklyn tower

Brooklyn’s tallest building for decades – the 37-story, 500-foot-tall Williamsburg Savings Bank building (1929), now called 1 Hansen Place – will be overshadowed by the new skyscraper, rising to 1,000 feet. Controversy surrounds the development but especially the overshadowing of the popular Art Deco clock tower.

80 Flatbush building Brooklyn

The first public hearing of the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure process (ULURP) met March 28th in Brooklyn Heights.

Representatives of Alloy Development, and the New York City Educational Construction Fund, which is building the proposed schools, attended.

Citizens raised concerns about scale, density, affordable housing (just 200 of the 900 apartments) and pressure on local infrastructure such as public transport and schools.

Alloy Development seeks rezoning for the irregular quadrilateral site to triple the allowable floor area ratio (FAR).
