420 Albee Square, rendering by KPF

Reveal for One Willoughby Square, Downtown Brooklyn Office Tower

UPDATEAccording to the developer, JEMB Realty, the below represents the latest iteration of the design of 420 Albee Square when it was with KPF Architects. KPF is no longer the architect on record and the developer will be introducing a new architect and concept soon.

The development site at 420 Albee Square has seen several twists and turns, with initial plans for the assemblage consisting of a 65-story tower that would have risen almost 700 feet. That iteration was shelved by the end of 2015, when YIMBY reported on a height chop down to 35 floors. By the end of last year, we had additional confirmation of what was happening thanks to the EDC’s continued efforts, with a rendering by Kohn Pedersen Fox finally appearing. Now, YIMBY has the official reveal for the project.
