Brooklyn's City Tech Tower Complex -- One Building? Two?

It Looks Like Five Buildings. But It's Not.

Just when you thought you knew everything there was to know about the really tall tower (and smaller buildings) soon to be built by City Tech and Forest City Ratner at the corner of Jay and Tillary Streets in Downtown Brooklyn ...

News came Thursday from the Brooklyn Eagle that the "complex" of five buildings isn't really five buildings, even though the rough draft looks like five buildings.

“Note that there will be one foundation for the building that will replace Klitgord,” a City Tech spokesperson said in an email to the Eagle. Though the rendering appears to show five separate buildings, “there will actually be just one.”

The taller "section" -- read tower -- will be residential and the shorter section will contain the City Tech classrooms and offices, an underground theater and a gymnasium. The tower section will have its own entrance; the City Tech section another entrance.
