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.
Construction is moving along on 291 Livingston Street, a 22-story hotel in Downtown Brooklyn. The 189-foot-tall structure is designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and is being developed by Aview Equities and Hello Living, which purchased the narrow plot for $11.1 million. The hotel is planned to contain 100 guest rooms and a ground-floor beer garden.
Work is nearing completion on The Alfred on Fleet, a 12-story condominium building at 112 Fleet Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Formerly known as 167 Willoughby Street, the structure comprises 24,250 square feet spread across 23 units.
