The Department of Buildings officially approved plans for the Oro 2 site on the corner of Gold and Johnson Streets. The new tower is scheduled to be 35 stories and 208 units, in line with earlier plans. The architect listed is Ismael Leyva, who designed the Oro Tower across the street as well as under-construction 29 Flatbush Avenue. There was some pre-construction activity at the site last month; the sale of the lot hit public records back in June.
