New Res. Towers in Downtown Brooklyn

The Brooklyn Eagle has an article on two new residential towers going up in downtown Brooklyn on Gold Street, near Tillary.

GoldStreet New Res. Towers in Downtown Brooklyn
306 and 313 Gold Street.

With 400,000 square feet and 40 stories, 306 Gold Street will have 303 condo units. Its sister building, at 313 Gold Street, will have 250,000 square feet and 214 condos, and will be 35 stories tall.

The buildings are being developed by Ron Hershco and Dean Palin, and Prudential Douglas Elliman will handle the marketing and sales.

These buildings are the result of downtown Brooklyn’s 2004 rezoning, which was originally planned to bring more office space to the area, but, as Matthew Schuerman explained in these pages a few months ago, it’s turning into a bedroom community instead.
