Despite recent legal drama, construction progress continues at Marvel Architects’ 1 Hotel and Pierhouse, the controversial hotel and residential condo development at the boundary of Brooklyn Bridge Park. (Monday, a judge dismissed a second attempt by a community group to dismantle the 30-foot-high bulkhead on top of 1 Hotel, which blocks the view of the Brooklyn Bridge from the Promenade.)
The Toll Brothers’ 100-foot-tall development topped out in January. Since then, work has been under way on the exterior envelope and interiors.
The glassy facade of 1 Hotel, the 200-key eco hotel from Starwood Capital Group, has been significantly complete since the May update. Throughout the summer, the facade of the adjacent Pierhouse condo building at 90 Furman Street has been covered in construction scaffolding.
Now, the scaffolding has started to come down on the Furman Street facade, revealing the copper-toned metal panel and glass cladding. Meanwhile, on the park-facing facade, a hint of the limestone accents are starting to be revealed as well.
The second condo building, at 130 Furman Street, across from the still-closed Squibb Park Bridge, has also topped out and shows signs that facade installation is about to begin.
By the look of it, construction should wrap up on both the hotel and condo buildings sometime next year.
