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

^ Nice.

Let’s Build at 9 DeKalb!
Let’s build with Brooklyn’s tallest!



Quote:
Join an afternoon of family-friendly adventures in Downtown Brooklyn’s Albee Square to celebrate Brooklyn’s tallest building, 9 DeKalb, including a look inside the adjacent landmarked Dime Savings Bank of Brooklyn with Open House NY. The project, when complete, will reach a cloud-scraping 93 stories well over 1,000 feet.

The day’s activities will include exciting opportunities for all ages to become a part of Brooklyn’ history, including:

-Architectural Time Capsule: One of the last steel I-beams to be placed at the top of the tower will be on display in Albee Square for all to sign, serving as a permanent “time capsule” community tribute.

-Street Labs Build NYC program will welcome all ages with a diverse pop-up of custom Lego building tables with building prompts, benches and a youth library and reading area.

-Open House New York will open the doors to offer public access to the historic Dime Savings Bank of Brooklyn - one the city’s finest examples of civic architecture.

So call it that. It doesn't really matter. Names are just ways of personalizing and familiarizing people with the skyscrapers, the only real practical function they serve is to differentiate themselves from other skyscrapers so as long as you're not using the name of a different one, it doesn't matter.

That view looking up the East River is such a cool and unique view. Love that these new towers especially in Brooklyn now can create a completely new angle.
