"Miss Brooklyn" would be 3X the Williamsburgh bank (in sf)
Atlantic Yards Report has been skimming through the General Project Plan and stumbled upon another holy-sh*t revelation:
"Miss Brooklyn" would be huge. While it would be the only building in the Atlantic Yards project taller (by about 20 percent) than the Williamsburgh Savings Bank nearby, architect Frank Gehry's flagship tower would be three times larger than the iconic bank, in square footage.
In fact, ten of the 16 buildings planned, including each of the five slated for the first phase, would be bigger than the bank, in bulk.
