I think this building looks even better than the renders.

From rbrome on Yimby Forums.

This building finally has a proper name. They’re calling it “The Brooklyn Tower”. They were stenciling it on the green plywood this afternoon, and JDS’s web site has been updated with the new name:

Like that name. It’ll stick.

Up, Up, Up in the Brooklyn Tower


By Ian Volner


Quote:
”You’re about to see Brooklyn like you’ve never seen it before,” said developer Michael Stern — and if he meant clinging in terror to the caged enclosure of a construction lift close to 900 feet in the air, he was right. He’d agreed to take me on a tour of the newly topped-out tallest building in the borough, now dubbed the Brooklyn Tower at 9 DeKalb, along with Gregg Pasquarelli, principal of SHoP Architects, which designed it.
Quote:
”We could have ended up with this big slab tower,” said Pasquarelli. “Most of the buildings along Flatbush are like that.” “We wanted to have an elegant tower of Gotham,” said the developer. Already, Stern says, he thinks they have a product that buyers and renters will choose over its neighbors. “People are all over us,” he said, even though sales don’t start till the spring. “We like that.” So these people, the ones so eager to live this high up in Brooklyn, are they … different somehow — different from other Brooklynites or from other mere mortals (besides, of course, being much, much richer)? Not really, Stern says. “It’s a decent cross section. They’re just people who appreciate views, who know what New York’s all about. They’re not daredevils.”

FINALLY an actual name for a tower, instead of an address.

If I were to put it into car terms, Rolls Royce Phantom vs BMW M760i xDrive is in an entirely different league and sounds so much better
