There has been steady progress at The Hub, aka 333 Schermerhorn Street, the 53-story rental tower from developer Douglas Steiner of Steiner Studios. One of the current crop of tall towers going up in downtown Brooklyn, the 581-unit building has reached the half way mark of its 577-foot final height.

Along with the progress in height, installation of the red brick cladding and windows for the tower has begun as well. When we last checked in, the tower portion of the development has risen to about the fifth floor.
