A curvy, twisty tower wedged between the Brooklyn Bridge and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway is starting to rise in Dumbo.
Located at 60 Front St., the building is currently standing at five stories, including the base structure, recent visits to the site show. Construction on the remaining 21 stories, which will eventually ascend in a slim, dramatic curve sloping upwards, has yet to begin. Looking at the site from Old Fulton Street, it appears as if a massive cruise ship is barreling down Front Street.
It stands 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.
