Talk about artistic license. Check out the rendering of Toren, the 38-story skyscraper under construction at the corner of Myrtle Avenue and Flatbush Avenue Extension.

It’s not exactly the most bucolic of locations, though you’d never know it from this rendering, which depicts one of the noisiest places in Downtown Brooklyn as a sylvan glen right out of County Cork.

Toren, a 240-unit “green” skyscraper to be clad in silver-blue aluminum and glass, will house studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom units plus 32 super-luxury penthouses, including duplexes.

The building will also offer an outdoor screening area, a large fitness center and swimming pool, a library/lounge, a two-level attended parking garage, retail space and a 24-hour concierge.

Condos in the building, designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill, will range from $350,000 to $1.7 million.

Sales at the picture-perfect building are underway.
