Construction is nearing the halfway mark on 141 Willoughby Street, a 24-story commercial building in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by Fogarty Finger with SLCE as the executive architect and developed by Savanna Real Estate, which secured $264 million in construction financing earlier this year, the 400,000-square-foot structure will yield a mix of office and retail space on a trapezoidal plot bound by Willoughby Street to the south, Gold Street to the west, and Flatbush Avenue Extension to the east. Gilbane Building Company and Savcon are the general contractors for the project.

Since our last update in mid-May, a considerable amount of progress has occurred on the steel superstructure, which is now reaching the 11th floor.

Photographs taken several days ago show workers laying down the metal decking on the newly formed floor plates, while the reinforced concrete core climbs higher. The building massing follows the layout of the streets and will stand prominently over the neighborhood when it reaches its pinnacle.

141 Willoughby Street’s design features setbacks on the ninth and 19th floors that will be furnished with seating and landscaping for select office suites. Occupants of these outdoor amenity spaces will have views up and down Flatbush Avenue Extension and toward the nearby Manhattan Bridge to the north. The façade is depicted with a warm-colored appearance with floor-to-ceiling glass and a grid of gold-colored spandrels and mullions that emphasize the structure’s verticality. The ground level is shown to have double-height ceilings with a more transparent glass frontage facing tree-lined sidewalks.

Construction on 141 Willoughby Street is set to conclude in March 2023, as noted on the construction board.

    • This is an office building, not a residential building. David is also just a commenter, and he has no affiliation with YIMBY. Just had to put it out there. /:

      • None of “Mrs Griffith’s” post makes sense. She received an email about a building under construction being finished? That makes no sense, especially it being a commercial building like you mentioned. Also, what about David’s word-salad-du-jour made her think he’s going to help her rent an apartment? Furthermore, why do any of these people think posting in the comments section on YIMBY is going to get them an affordable unit?

    • Yes, Mr. David and I would love to help you. Post your email information here and phone number for further assistance.

    • Good Afternoon Donna,
