Exterior work is shaping up on 200 Montague Street, a 20-story residential building in the Borough Hall Skyscraper Historic District of Brooklyn Heights. Designed by Beyer Blinder Belle with James M. Patterson of Ancora Engineering and developed by Midtown Equities, the 140,700-square-foot structure will yield 121 rental units between Court and Clinton Streets, just to the west of Columbus Park. Cauldwell Wingate is the general contractor, and M.N.S. Real Estate NYC is marketing the project for Aurora Capital Associates.
Leasing has launched for The Willoughby, a 34-story tower at 196 Willoughby Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Developed by RXR Realty, the project will deliver 476 rental units, academic and office spaces, a new adjacent athletic field, and parking for 564 vehicles when it opens this fall. Douglas Elliman Real Estate is handling leasing with prices starting at $2,870 a month for studios, $3,840 for one-bedrooms, and $5,660 for two-bedrooms.
Construction is continuing to rise on 9 DeKalb Avenue, a 93-story residential skyscraper in Downtown Brooklyn, as the structure nears the 984-foot-tall threshold that will make it the first supertall in the outer boroughs. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS, the 1,066-foot-tall project will yield 450 rental apartments and 150 condominiums above a retail podium bound by Flatbush Avenue Extension to the northeast, Fleet Street to the northwest, the landmark Dime Savings Bank of Brooklyn to the southwest, and DeKalb Avenue to the south.
Construction is complete on the Irish Arts Center, a five-story building at 726 Eleventh Avenue in the Midtown, Manhattan neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen. Designed by Davis Brody Bond and Ciaran O’Connor, the brick structure is nestled between West 51st and West 52nd Streets, just around the corner from its original three-story home at 553 West 51st Street.
Construction is nearing the halfway mark on 141 Willoughby Street, a 24-story commercial building in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by Fogarty Finger with SLCE as the executive architect and developed by Savanna Real Estate, which secured $264 million in construction financing earlier this year, the 400,000-square-foot structure will yield a mix of office and retail space on a trapezoidal plot bound by Willoughby Street to the south, Gold Street to the west, and Flatbush Avenue Extension to the east. Gilbane Building Company and Savcon are the general contractors for the project.
