Walls Rising at 53-Story Rental Tower on Schermerhorn Street in Downtown Brooklyn


The walls are rising at 333 Schermerhorn Street, the 53-story rental tower from developer Douglas Steiner of Steiner Studios. Located in downtown Brooklyn, the 581-unit building will reach 577 feet and join the numerous other towers under construction in this booming part of Brooklyn.

The tower massing is composed of a rectangular form with a serrated facade on the long elevations. These angled piers create a series of corner units that offer better views than a standard unit.

Brick and glass will be the primary facade materials, with glass increasing on the southeast portion of the tower. Amenities in the tower include a landscaped outdoor terrace with sun deck, fitness center with yoga studio, a dog run, a grilling terrace, and bike storage.

At the base of the site, a podium of three stories will house 35,000 square feet of retail. Dattner Architects is leading the design of the project along with Goldstein Hill & West Architects. Completion is scheduled for 2017.
