The Brooklyn Tower

Downtown Brooklyn, New York

9 DeKalb Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11201, USA

Brooklyn’s first supertall makes a strong first impression. It’s very, very tall, yes—nearly twice the height of its nearest competition—but it’s more than that. With its upward-reaching silhouette and unique materiality, pairing white marble with blackened and bronzed metals, SHoP Architects has created a new standard for skyscrapers, a tower that is at once referential and forward-looking. And then you step inside: refined residences by Gachot Studios are a continuation of the exterior design, encapsulating timeless glamor and a sense of tranquility, while the more than 120,000 square feet of amenities offer everything you could possibly imagine.

About The Brooklyn Tower

The first thing you notice about The Brooklyn Tower is its height. Rising 1,066 feet, it is Brooklyn’s tallest building by far and the borough’s first supertall. But it’s not just its stature that impresses. Designed by New York-based SHoP Architects, the tower is both grounded in history and groundbreaking. At street level, the Dime Savings Bank (originally built in 1906 and expanded in 1932) provides a literal anchor to the past—and is the reason for the new skyscraper’s hexagonal footprint. From its white marble base, the tower seems to shoot upward, a series of organ pipe-like tubes that taper and darken as they reach the top. It’s daring and dramatic, a futuristic focal point for Brooklyn and greater New York City.

Downtown Brooklyn is a residential and commercial center where the borough’s older mom-and-pop stores meet newer retail arrivals. Bustling during the day and quiet at night, it is rich in cultural offerings from the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the Barclays Center. Walk from the bustle of the neighborhood to the quiet of nearby parks, or to the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges. Served by over 11 different subway lines (and home to the New York Transit Museum), the neighborhood is a popular choice for those who work in Lower Manhattan.

Interior design firm Gachot Studios is known for their ability to combine simplicity and elegance, minimalism and warmth; they deliver all of the above at The Brooklyn Tower. It doesn’t hurt that residences start at 535 feet above ground, with soaring ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows that take full advantage of unprecedented views in every direction, but whether it’s a studio or sprawling four-bedroom penthouse, the residences also feel like a place to call home—and that’s due to the attention to detail in every choice: the custom honey stain for the oak flooring, for example; the painting-like Breccia Capraia marble walls in the bathroom, or the matte black and brass kitchens that echo the tower’s bold exteriors. “The materials that are in the residences play off of all the materials that were used in the facade,” explains founding principal Christine Gachot. “That’s how we came up with the palette, the materiality, the warmth.”

To say the amenities at The Brooklyn Tower are expansive is an understatement. The more than 120,000 square feet of libraries and lounges, pools and movie theaters were designed by a trio of architecture firms, including Woods Bagot, SHoP, and HMWhite, to encompass six key areas: art, music, design, wellness, food, and storytelling. There are spaces to work and work out, to eat and entertain, to converse and create. Of particular note are the pool terrace, built around the dome of the historic Dime Savings Bank, and the 66th-floor sky deck with an open-air basketball court. Of course, there’s the Downtown Brooklyn location as well, which offers easy access to DeKalb Market, BAM, Barclays Center, and Fort Greene Park (not to mention Junior’s famous cheesecake, right across the street).
