Brooklyn's tallest building reaches 514 feet
With the Brooklyner now topped off, the 514-foot-high apartment tower is Brooklyn's tallest building. Designed by New York-based Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel Architects and developed by The Clarett Group, the soaring 51-story tower is constructed of cast-in-place concrete and clad with window walls and decorative metal panels. Helping the modern building blend with its historic neighbors, the architects specified a palette of earth tones and "basket weave" exterior walls reflective of the borough's old brownstones. The luxury 491-unit building is expected to open to residents in early 2010.
