SHoP has won Landmarks Preservation Commission approval to build Brooklyn’s tallest tower at 340 Flatbush Avenue Extension, reports New York Yimby. Located on the same block of the former Dime Savings Bank, an individual and interior landmark, SHoP’s proposal calls for a 73-story, 1,066 foot-tall mixed-use tower. The proposal required LPC-approval because the architects want to merge the tower’s lobby with the bank and convert the atrium into a new retail component. The site’s relationship to the bank building encouraged the architects to develop a design and material choices that are heavily influenced by the proposed tower’s smaller, but no less grand, neighbor.

As noted in the LPC presentation by SHoP partner Gregg Pasquarelli, the bank is on a triangular lot, but it resolves this plot condition through inlaid hexagonal motifs on the marble floor within. Considering this lead SHoP to design its tower as a series of gradual setbacks on six sides that echo the floor patterns of the bank interior. While there were some concerns raised about the removal of teller stations in the banking hall (a restoration project for that space will occur in tandem to the tower’s construction) most members of the commission thought SHoP’s presentation was exceptional.
