The tallest building in Brooklyn begins its rise to the top
Construction on 9 Dekalb, the tallest tower in Brooklyn, is about to begin. Reaching 1,066 feet, this development will throw Brooklyn into the conversation around super-tall buildings. The tower will yield 417 rental apartments, 20 percent of which will be priced below-market rate. JP Morgan Chase sold the landmarked Dime bank building, located on the site of the tower, to JDS Development Group and Chetrit Group for $90 million. The developers also bought the other property on the site, 340 Flatbush Ave. Extension, for $43 million.
