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.
In an exclusive reveal, YIMBY is pleased to share new renderings of a 24-story mixed-use tower in Downtown Brooklyn designed by SLCE Architects and Fogarty Finger. Located at 141 Willoughby Street, the building was originally expected to support a mix of ground-floor retail, student housing, office space, and residential units. It was also speculated that the building could climb as high as 44 stories with approximately 310,000 buildable square feet. However, the latest pair of renderings appear to reveal a dedicated commercial tower with office suites positioned above the second floor.
The glass curtain of 106 West 56th Street appears to have recently reached the top floor of the 403-foot-tall office building. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by private equity firm Savanna along with Hong Kong-based developer Atom Assets, the 27-story structure stands topped out between Sixth Avenue and Seventh Avenue, one street to the south of Billionaires’ Row.
YIMBY checked in on 141 Willoughby Street in Downtown Brooklyn, the site of a forthcoming 23-story office building. Demolition has concluded and the land sits awaiting excavation for the 360-foot-tall structure, which is being designed by Fogarty Finger Architects with SLCE Architects as the architect of record. Gregory Jaffe of Savanna is listed as the owner on the applications that were filed in June 2019.
Installation of the reflective glass curtain wall on the northern elevation of 106 West 56th Street is approaching the final setback of the 27-story structure. The Perkins Eastman-designed boutique office building stands topped out at 403 feet tall and is being developed by private equity firm Savanna Fund, along with Hong Kong-based developer Atom Assets.
