Located just across the harbor from the New York Hotel, where passengers would often stay before a voyage to that city, Codrico Tower will rise to a height of 220 meters. It will be an integral part of the Codrico Terrain, a new mixed-use neighborhood occupying the site of Rotterdam’s historic Codrico factory.
The historic interior of the Brooklyn Dime Savings Bank, an adjoining landmark, will be restored and repurposed to form part of a new mid-block connection for pedestrians between Flatbush Avenue and Fulton Street, two of Brooklyn’s defining thoroughfares. The timeless design of the 73-story tower will be accented with a palette of materials, ranging from marble to bronze, that are selected to evoke without mimicry the bank’s rich City Beautiful detailing.
