The loan is coming from Otéra Capital Inc. and Silverstein Capital Partners. SHoP Architects is designing the building, which is located at the corner of DeKalb Avenue and Fleet Street, and sits across the street from the City Point complex. The development is expected to contain 425 rental apartments and 150 condominiums.
YIMBY recently went on a hard hat tour of Brooklyn Point, aka 138 Willoughby Street, in Downtown Brooklyn.
