The 26-story tower rising at 159 Broadway next to South Williamsburg‘s landmarked, domed Williamsburgh Savings Bank is making progress on its way to becoming 21 condos and a hotel. A new rendering courtesy of architectural firm Stonehill Taylor depicts the 277-foot-tall tower on the rise thanks to air rights above the bank, purchased by developer Cornell Realty Management along with the lot adjacent the bank hall.

The rendering shows a glass rectangle topping a tall, narrow concrete base. Stonehill Taylor was behind the interior architecture and design when the First National Bank building in Jersey City was converted into a 258-unit hotel in 2017, so they’ve had experience working with historic bank buildings. The mixed-use project in the still-growing Brooklyn neighborhood is expected to be completed in 2021.
