Last month, RXR Realty celebrated the topping off of The Willoughby, a 34-story mixed-use tower at 196 Willoughby Street on the Long Island University Brooklyn campus. Located in Downtown Brooklyn, the new ground-up structure contains residential units, academic and office space, a state-of-the-art athletic field, and parking for 564 vehicles. Perkins Eastman is responsible for the design of the 435-foot-tall building.
FXCollaborative has updated design proposals for a new residential tower and partial expansion of the historic Brooklyn Music School in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Located at 130 Saint Felix Street, the most notable changes in the architect’s proposals include a new structural height of 265 feet, down from 285 feet, and a series of setback terrace levels toward the top of the building. The proposal was approved at a Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) meeting on August 4th.
Construction is getting close to topping out at One University Plaza, a 34-story mixed-use structure at 61 DeKalb Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by RXR Realty, the 435-foot-tall building is part of Long Island University‘s expansion and will add 370,960 square feet of new space to the campus.
Jeanne Gang’s 620-foot-tall, 57-story residential skyscraper at 11 Hoyt Street is getting closer to completion in Downtown Brooklyn. The installation of the wavy, rippling envelope is practically finished and most of the activity has shifted to the podium. The building is being developed by Tishman Speyer and designed by Studio Gang, with Hill West Architects as the architect of record. Michaelis Boyd Associates is leading the interior design for the 481 residential units, which come with 190 unique layouts.
Exterior work has been progressing rapidly at One Willoughby Square, a 495-foot-tall office skyscraper in Downtown Brooklyn. Alternately addressed as 420 Albee Square, the façade paneling has reached the parapet of the 34-story office skyscraper, which is designed by FXCollaborative and developed by JEMB Realty. The project will debut as the tallest new office building in Brooklyn and will yield 500,000 square feet of Class A office space. Gilbane Building Company is in charge of the ongoing construction.
