It was temporarily removed back in 2017 but the iconic 19th century mansard roof is peeking out from behind scaffolding at the Fulton Mall Macy's.
The scaled glass facade that faces Fulton Street is almost complete, and work on the rest of the building is progressing steadily.
On the site of a former Macy's parking garage at the corner of Hoyt and Livingston Streets, the building will house 481 condominiums.
Designed by Jeanne Gang of Chicago-based Studio Gang Architects, the building exterior offers a striking example of cast concrete.
The steel is rising at Macy's on Fulton Street.
A recent walk down Fulton Mall revealed the iconic green mansard roof of the Downtown Brooklyn Macy's building has disappeared.
The site where the Macy's parking garage once stood in Downtown Brooklyn is being cleared to make way for condos.
A reader wrote in wondering what’s happening at Long Island City’s Gotham Center, the city-supported, Tishman Speyer development near Queensboro Plaza. Currently, the site is home to 2 Gotham Center, a shiny mid-rise tower housing the Department of Health. But as our tipster says: “This was always presented as ‘Phase 1’ of a larger development plan, but ever since that building went up, the rest of the ‘Center’ has just become a giant, glorified, fenced in gravel pit. It would be great to see some coverage on what, if any, plans exist to build out the rest of this Center or whether Tishman Speyer plans to just let it sit there while every other part of Queens Plaza gets developed.” It’s true, a very long time ago plans also called for housing and retail in at least two more towers. Trusted sources tell us that this remains Tishman’s project under the current contract, although there is no definite timeline for the second tower. That “giant, glorified, fenced in gravel pit” is likely to remain that way at least through the end of this year. GMAP
