Exterior work is progressing at One Willoughby Square, a 495-foot-tall office skyscraper in Downtown Brooklyn. Alternately addressed as 420 Albee Square, the project is designed by FXCollaborative and being developed by JEMB Realty, and will yield 500,000 square feet of Class A office space. Gilbane Building Company is in charge of constructing the reinforced concrete edifice, which stands as the tallest new office building in Brooklyn.
Demolition work is progressing at 547–589 Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn, the site of a proposed skyscraper. RedSky Capital, LLC is reported to be the developer of the triangular-shaped parcel, which is listed as “Fulton Mall” on its website. The plot was assembled and purchased for $104 million and is bound by DeKalb Avenue to the north, Flatbush Avenue Extension diagonally to the east, Fulton Street to the south, and Bond Street to the west. It’s unclear whether the tower is slated for residential or commercial use.
Construction is ascending steadily at 9 DeKalb Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn, the first supertall project in the outer boroughs. The reinforced concrete superstructure currently stands around 28 stories tall, more than one-third of its 73-story total. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS, the 1,066-foot-tall skyscraper will yield 425 rental apartments and 150 condominiums.
Excavation is underway at 141 Willoughby Street, the site of a 24-story mixed-use building in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by SLCE Architects and Fogarty Finger Architecture and developed by Savanna Real Estate, the project will yield a mix of office and retail space. The trapezoidal site is bound by Flatbush Avenue to the east, Willoughby Street to the south, and Gold Street to the west. The parcel was once the site of the Institute of Design and Construction, which was demolished last year.
Construction has passed the halfway mark at 308 Livingston Street, a 23-story residential building in Downtown Brooklyn. The project, which will yield 160 rental units, is designed by Fogarty Finger Architecture and is being developed by Lonicera Partners, which purchased the lot in May 2019 for $11 million.
