Brooklyn’s Tallest Building On the Way

Brooklyn’s Tallest Building On the Way

The building under construction here is 111 Lawrence Street, which is rising fast and when completed will be Brooklyn’s tallest building.  A project by the Clarett Group, it will be 50+ stories according to their site–DOB puts the number at 51 stories, or 514 feet tall.  According to Wikipedia, that’s two feet taller than the current tallest Brooklyn building, the Williamsburgh Bank Building.

Belltel Lofts–the Art Deco building  just to 111′s right–clocks in at 350 feet tall, so 111 Lawrence will be half again as tall as Belltel.  DOB’s records show that 111 Lawrence will have almost 500 residential units.   Click through for a closeup of the facade panels which have been installed so far, and a rendering.
