The Chetrit Group and JDS Development are touting new details and a new rendering for the future tallest building in Brooklyn, at 340 Flatbush Avenue Extension in DoBro.

According to new plans by SHoP Architects, the tower will rise 1,000 feet tall, far beyond the original 775-foot plans filed with the city, and hundreds of feet taller than any other structure in the borough, existing or planned.

The building will be thin, according to the plans, with a height-to-width ratio of 12:1, NY YIMBY reported.

The partners filed a permit application last year to construct a 70-story, 495-unit, 556,000-square-foot building on the site.

New plans call for 550 units divided among 90 stories. There will be 466,000 square feet of residential space, and 140,000 square feet of commercial, which is likely to include the refurbished Dime Savings Bank that Chetrit and JDS bought earlier this year for $90 million.

Although YIMBY reported that the adjacent parcel at 9 Dekalb Avenue, occupied by Junior’s Cheesecake, will be razed, records show JDS doesn’t own the property. A spokesperson for Junior’s told Curbed that the dessert shop isn’t going anywhere.
