Earlier this week, YIMBY revealed renderings for 340 Flatbush Avenue, which could become Brooklyn’s tallest tower. But the borough’s current tallest building, Ava DoBro (formerly Avalon Willoughby West), is inching toward completion a few blocks away at 100 Willoughby Street.
The facade is mostly finished, except for a few windows and a thin stretch of the building that needs to remain open for the construction hoist. The Duffield Street side has the majority of its white panels and blue windows, and the glassy, dark blue cladding on the Willoughby Street side is complete.
Most of the apartments now have unsightly PTACs installed below the windows, and we expect the interiors are coming along. The lobby is furnished and has a coffee bar, but no tenant has moved into the 15,000-square-foot ground floor retail space yet.
Rentals at the 57-story tower hit the market back in May, with studios starting at $2,890. Now the building has a few dozen listings up for grabs, mostly on the lower floors. The priciest apartment for rent at the moment is a 1,353-square-foot, three-bedroom pad asking $5,915. Tenants began moving in over the summer.
Ultimately, the development will top out at 595 feet tall and hold 861 apartments. The residential part of the tower will span 731,500 square feet, and the finished building will measure 870,000 square feet. There will be parking for 167 cars spread between the cellar and second floor, and the first floor will offer a direct entrance to the Jay Street-MetroTech subway station, via the R train platform.
AvalonBay is developing the project, and SLCE is the architect.
