LEESER Architecture was engaged to develop a vision for the 1.2 million sf addition on the Macy's Downtown Brooklyn parcels. The iconic 910 foot high tower will house 230 condos and 468 rental units. The tower is added on top of an existing building, preserving the existing Art Deco style facades. This design also allows retail stores such as Macy's to remain open during construction.
A two tower mixed use complex is designed on the opposite side of Macy's, providing 200,000 sf retail space, a public plaza, 248 condo units and 308 rental units.
