200 Montague Street

An elegant dark contemporary residential tower will rise on a prominent site within an historic district in Brooklyn.

On the former site of a 4-story bank, BBB has designed a 20-story infill residential tower with ground-floor and cellar retail space, 121 rental units on the second through twentieth floors, and amenities including a landscaped rooftop terrace, private rear yard terraces, fitness and yoga rooms, resident lounge space, children’s playroom, general and bicycle storage, communal laundry, and pet wash. The unit interiors will boast a clean modern palette with oversized windows. The building’s distinctive design pays subtle homage to the area’s historic architecture with its verticality, rhythmic dark facade, including a polished black granite base, profiled Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) piers, bronze-tone metal detailing and charcoal-grey colored window frames. Located within the Borough Hall Skyscraper Historic District, the development was approved by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission.
