Permits have been filed for a 40-story mixed-use high-rise at 111 Willoughby Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Located between Bridge Street and Duffield Street, the interior lot is a five-minute walk from the Jay Street-MetroTech subway station, serviced by the A, C, F, and R trains and the Hoyt Street station, serviced by the 2 and 3 trains. The Michaels Organization under the 111 Willoughby Developer LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The proposed 434-foot-tall development will yield 195,168 square feet, with 153,425 square feet designated for residential space, 20,665 square feet for community facility space, and 1,814 square feet for commercial space. The building will have 227 residences, most likely rentals based on the average unit scope of 675 square feet. The concrete-based structure will also have a cellar but no accessory parking.
GF55 Partners is listed as the architect of record.
Demolition permits have not been filed yet for the church on the site. An estimated completion date has not been announced.

What should you report? And what should I read? You thought so yourself: Thank you.
Is this the tallest building GF55 has ever done? I’m a little worried…
Maybe it’s petty of me, but you all have no credibility when you say that it’s a “five-minute walk” to the Jay Street-Metrotech subway station when there is an entrance literally on the corner. It might be a 5 minute walk to Hoyt St station if you stop for a slice of pizza on the way.
100% agree. It’s literally right across the street. Also, no mention of the B and Q lines at DeKalb – literally minutes away.
