New Building at 172 Montague Street Starts to Rise

The Brooklyn Eagle observes that the new building at 172 Montague Street is starting to take shape:

Brooklyn Eagle: he new apartment tower at 172 Montague St. sprang up into plain view seemingly overnight after demurely hiding for several months. Bonjour Capital is building the 19-story Brooklyn Heights residential tower. When can we find out how much the rents are going to be?

And this is what it’s going to look like:

    used to live at 180 and work at hallmark, briefly. wonder how they’ll handle the lot line windows? i suspect remove them and brick up. 180 is all transients/corporate apts so it won’t matter much, i guess. i still think the developer at 180 paid off someone at DOB – there are only 2 elevators for 30+ stories/10+ units per floor, and no freight lift. imagine the fun when they both broke down! and the poor oldsters living in the PHs couldn’t get down.

    Man, that is one ugly facade.

    Agreed. If those who were building it were going to live in it, they’d do better.

    UGLY rendering – looks like a prison. Weird very noisy NIGHT-time, weekend work going on – do they have permits for this? Also wondering here about the lot-line windows – do those renters simply lose their views??

    Yeah, they’re screwed.
