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.
YIMBY checked in on 141 Willoughby Street in Downtown Brooklyn, the site of a forthcoming 23-story office building. Demolition has concluded and the land sits awaiting excavation for the 360-foot-tall structure, which is being designed by Fogarty Finger Architects with SLCE Architects as the architect of record. Gregory Jaffe of Savanna is listed as the owner on the applications that were filed in June 2019.
The Cove at 43-12 Hunter Street sits in the middle of Long Island City, Queens. The detailed grey-colored curtain wall of windows and metal panels cover the entire 18-story, reinforced concrete edifice.

Rockrose Development is the developer of the triangular site, which was previously purchased for $1 million back in 2006. The Cove will yield 123 rental units with 37 units being affordable homes, or roughly 30 percent of the total inventory.

The project is expected to cost around $250 million.
