Although the new Gotham Towers, as they are colloquially known, are not residential projects, their proximity to one of the fastest growing communities in the Big Apple merits an update. As of November 11, 2017, work is forging ahead with workers pouring cement for the second story flooring at 28-07 Jackson Avenue (aka Gotham Towers). The area was bustling with construction workers, local residents, and visitors alike. Across the street, work was forging ahead with Tishman Speyer’s an H&R Real Estate Investment Trust’s other massive project, 28-02/28-10 Jackson Avenue.
Tishman Speyer’s application to construct Gotham Towers was filed with the DOB back in June of 2016. The completion of this project, along with 28-02/28-10 Jackson Avenue, will go a long way in streamlining an otherwise ramshackle avenue strewn with pre-war storefronts, massive high-rises, luxury condos, and relentless construction.
