It’s a done deal: Downtown Brooklyn’s neo-Classical Dime Savings Bank has officially sold to developers Joe Chetrit and Michael Stern for $90,000,000.
Just what Brooklyn needs: Another T-Mobile.
An additional outpost of the cell phone and communications company has signed a lease at 93 Court Street — a once-glorious Tudor-style architecture office — for $200 a square foot, a CPEX spokesperson told Brownstoner, in what may well be a new high for the area’s retail rents.

SHoP Architects unveiled a new rendering of the 1,000-foot-tall tower planned for 340 Flatbush Avenue Extension — Brooklyn’s future tallest structure.

The Brooklyn Tech Triangle — encompassing Downtown Brooklyn, Dumbo, and the Brooklyn Navy Yard — was conceived in 2013 by a coalition of businesses advocating for more office space and worker amenities in the borough’s commercial hub.
