    Check Out These Insane Views From Brooklyn’s First 1,000+ Foot Tower

    Seeing the boroughs from sky-high heights is nothing new thanks to all the supertall towers in Manhattan, but it’s not as common to have a panoramic view of our main island, which is why we had to share this video. JDS Development posted the short clip on their Instagram stream yesterday that shows potential views from their upcoming mixed-use skyscraper planned for Downtown Brooklyn using air rights from the Dime Savings Bank site. If constructed as intended, it will be the first 1,000+ foot tower outside of Manhattan. The nine-second video, whose camera height seems nearly eye-level to the 1,368-foot roof of One World Trade Center, depicts far-reaching, panoramic views to the west and northwest over Manhattan and beyond.

    The facade on TEN's tower is veeerrrrrrry similar to what they used on Mercedes House.

    This is what looks to me like a low cost curtain wall system. I was disappointed to see it go up at Mercedes house; and think it looks 'just' OK enough here too - but nothing special. This is an 'easy to assemble' component curtain wall, so big savings on labor costs and material cost: value engineering at its best.

    Indeed. Many homes being built in the city while homelessness is rising.

    Of course any location near Manhattan/harbor/skyline is going to have a great view if you can go high above everything else. My point is that the views from that specific location isn't going to be that much different than the site next to it, and the site next to that and so on. In other words, it isn't anymore special as far as offering potential views than other sites.

    So tell me why they would go supertall here and now, especially with the added costs of building tall, than many other sites all around there, some of which have more buildable square footage, haven't already?

    (BTW, what the hell is that link suppose to show?)
