Construction on the Avalon Willoughby Square is kicking into high gear, and the residential tower — which will soon become the tallest building in all of Brooklyn — is now several floors above street level. As of last September, demolition of the site’s former structures was just wrapping up, and the block’s transformation is already impressive.
The building’s official address is 100 Willoughby Street, and the project is located directly across from Brooklyn’s current tallest, 388 Bridge. The pair will temporarily define the borough’s skyline, but will soon be joined by even taller towers at 340 Flatbush Avenue Ext. and likely CityPoint, as well.
SLCE is the architect of record, and no new renderings of the design have been released; the on-site glimpse into the future of 100 Willoughby Street is relatively plain and especially glassy, but the overwhelming density is the project’s most impressive feature, and permits indicate the 57-story and 595-foot development will deliver 823 units.
On-site signage indicates completion of the project is expected in 2015, and if the current pace of construction continues, the tower should pierce the Brooklyn skyline in no time.
