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.

Based on a rendering from CPEX, which brokered the deal, the facade of the building will be repaired for the better, but sadly not restored. Trust us, you want to see it in its original glory:

With much fanfare, city officials and developer Jemb Realty Monday officially announced a 35-story commercial building to be built at 420 Albee Square. The announcement was heavy on prepared statements of support from local politicians but light on the details, such as when construction might start or end. The building was no secret, however, as permits were filed in March.

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.

Two years later, the group has released an update calling for — surprise! — yet more office space.
