Demo Happening for New DoBro Development, The Hub


    A post yesterday on Curbed reminded us of the huge, but recently ignored, Downtown Brooklyn development planned for 333 Schermerhorn Street called The Hub. (Developer Doug Steiner announced the 52-story, 720-unit rental development back in February.) Curbed picked up some new renderings from the blog New York YIMBY, shown above. The building should be complete in 2014, and it looks like work is gearing up to start soon. This morning construction workers were prepping for a demolition of the six-story office building on site. The adjacent lot that backs up to Flatbush Avenue is also cleared out. Finally, the DOB is processing a new building permit for 53 stories and 754 units, slightly larger than the original plans. Twenty percent of those units will be affordable. Looks like Downtown Brooklyn is getting a whole lot taller in the next few years. Also scheduled for completion in 2014: 388 Bridge Street (53 stories, 378 condo and rental units) and the Avalon development on Willoughby (596 feet tall, 861 rental units).
