Last year, the Landmarks Preservation Commission gave 9 Dekalb, Brooklyn’s first supertall tower, the green light. But since then the site, which is being developed by JDS and designed by SHoP Architects, has been fairly quiet — until now.
JDS Development Group posted a new video on its Instagram account yesterday showing that caisson installation is now underway, according to Curbed.
Caisson installation is one of the first steps of building out the foundation of the 1,066-foot building. The tower is scheduled for completion in 2020. [Curbed] —Christopher Cameron
