Exterior work is getting close to completion at Extell’s Brooklyn Point, aka 1 City Point, in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox with SLCE Architects as the architect of record, the 68-story, 720-foot-tall skyscraper stands topped out as the tallest structure in the borough. The project is also addressed as 138 Willoughby Street and is the third and final phase of the City Point complex, aka 445 Albee Square. Katherine Newman is designing the interior spaces including the 458 units, which range from studios to three-bedroom layouts with pricing from $850,000 to nearly $4 million.
Demolition is now complete at the adjacent sites of 80 Flatbush Avenue and 100 Flatbush Avenue in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. The narrow plot of 80 Flatbush Avenue will eventually give rise to an 840-foot-tall skyscraper while the triangular lot of 100 Flatbush Avenue will be the future home a 482-foot-tall mixed-use building, both part of a multi-structure mixed-use complex from Alloy Development. Architecture Research Office is the designer of the complex, located on a site bound by Flatbush Avenue, State Street, Third Avenue, and a small sliver of Schermerhorn Street.
Construction is finally about to go vertical at 9 DeKalb Avenue, the first supertall skyscraper in the outer boroughs. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS, the Downtown Brooklyn residential tower is planned to stand 1,066 feet above the neighborhood.
Demolition work has stalled at 570 Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn, the site of a proposed 550-foot-tall skyscraper designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Slate Property Group. Scaffolding and blue netting still shroud the main façade of the existing building, and it appears that little progress has been made since YIMBY’s January visit. As planned, the new development would yield a mixture of market-rate apartments, affordable housing, retail, and small-scale office space.
Workers have begun pouring the foundations for 23-20 Jackson Avenue, a nine-story mixed-use hotel in Long Island City, Queens. Designed by KSQ Architects and developed by The Vorea Group, the corner property will yield 85,851 square feet of retail, offices, and a 72-room hotel operated by San Francisco-based hotelier Sonder Corp.
