Excavation is underway at 141 Willoughby Street, the site of a 24-story mixed-use building in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by SLCE Architects and Fogarty Finger Architecture and developed by Savanna Real Estate, the project will yield a mix of office and retail space. The trapezoidal site is bound by Flatbush Avenue to the east, Willoughby Street to the south, and Gold Street to the west. The parcel was once the site of the Institute of Design and Construction, which was demolished last year.
Excavation could begin soon at 151 Bay Street, the site of a 33-story mixed-use tower that will make up the third phase of Jersey City’s Provost Square complex. Designed by SLCE Architects and developed by Toll Brothers, the project will integrate part of the façade of the former A&P Annex Building, which has been stripped down to its concrete frame. The new structure will rise at the corner of Provost Street and Bay Street and yield 259 residential units, 6,289 square feet of retail space, and a parking garage with 218 spaces. Twelve units are to be designated as live-work units, with one for an artist in residence.
Construction has passed the halfway mark at 308 Livingston Street, a 23-story residential building in Downtown Brooklyn. The project, which will yield 160 rental units, is designed by Fogarty Finger Architecture and is being developed by Lonicera Partners, which purchased the lot in May 2019 for $11 million.

Following the successful resolution of recent litigation with Jersey City, a new design has been released for Kushner Companies’ planned two-towered high rise residential development at 1 Journal Square Plaza, in Jersey City‘s Journal Square. Also known as 1 Journal Square, construction is expected to break ground in 2021. The revised designs would add two major skyscrapers to the neighborhood’s growing skyline, both standing over 700 feet to their rooftops.
