A tilted, glassy tower is coming soon to Dumbo, where it will be wedged between the Brooklyn Bridge and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.
Located at 60 Front Street (alternative addresses include 30 Front Street and 1 York Street), the 26-story tower is designed by the firm Hill West Architects. On top of a five-story base, the remaining 21 stories will ascend in a slim, dramatic curve sloping upwards.
It will stand on what was formerly a triangular shaped parking lot at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge owned by the Jehovah’s Witnesses. It was acquired by the developer Fortis in December 2018 for $91.113 million. It is not part of the Dumbo Historic District.
The architect filed an application for a new building in January, and they got the go-ahead to start work on the foundation in March. The project has recently broken ground, a site visit Monday revealed.
