The project is slated to be constructed at 340 Flatbush Avenue in downtown Brooklyn, in an area where new buildings rarely rise above 600 feet. The site currently contains the historic Dime Savings Bank, which opened in 1908. Completion is tentatively scheduled for 2019. “SHoP’s tower will be a dramatic improvement for both the cityscape and the skyline,” wrote NIMBY, which tracks New York building projects. “With slender proportions capped in pointed, Deco-tinged accents, the building will have a notable presence without overwhelming its surrounds.”
