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.
