The Department of Buildings (DOB) last week approved plans for the Oro 2 site at the corner of Gold and Johnson Streets in Downtown Brooklyn.
First reported on Brownstoner.com, the new tower will be 35 stories, 367 feet tall and will contain 208 residential units, according to the DOB permits approved on July 23.
As Brownstoner noted and the Eagle also reported, this is in line with earlier plans. The architect listed is Ismael Leyva Architects, designer of the existing Oro tower across the street as well as the under-construction 29 Flatbush Ave.
Also as the Eagle has reported, the property sold for $19 million in May and the owner identified as Brooklyn Princess LLC.
