In a city that often feels stitched together by scaffolding, the development known as the Alloy Block — on a bustling street in downtown Brooklyn, across from the red-and-silver sign of the Brooklyn Academy of Music — long seemed like just another construction site.

But there’s something unique about the project’s first phase, a 44-story tower that opened this spring. Surrounded by buildings that rely heavily on gas and oil for energy, 505 State Street is New York’s first all-electric skyscraper.

In an ever-changing Downtown Brooklyn, high-rise apartment buildings nearing completion are a familiar sight. But there’s something a bit different about the one at 505 State Street.
This 44-story, 440-unit rental building is to be the first all-electric residential tower in New York City, a claim that was confirmed by the Department of Buildings.
Functions that would typically use gas will instead be electric — meaning no gas stoves. The heating and hot water will be electric, too.
