The second phase of the mixed-use City Point development at the site of the former Albee Square Mall in Brooklyn is substantially complete. Washington Square Partners delivered a 50,000-square-foot retail building in February 2012 and work on the development's highrise component — two residential towers holding 30 and 19 levels — commenced in November 2012.
The COOKFOX-designed structures along Flatbush Avenue boast 560,000 square feet of space. The 30-storey building, clad in a unitized terra cotta panel system, provides market-rate homes while the 19-storey tower, composed of unitized metal panels, is dedicated to affordable housing. The 660,000-square-foot retail podium has progressed nicely as crews prepare these spaces for the announced tenants, which so far include Century 21 and an Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.
Each of the studio, one-, and two-bedroom units feature spacious layouts, luxury finishes, and amazing views. To supplement the neighbourhood's conveniences, which include entertainment and shopping destinations like the Barclay's Center and Fulton Mall, the development offers an extensive range of interior amenities aimed to please. A state-of-the-art gym, children's playroom, games room, and a rooftop terrace are all included within the confines of the project.
News about the third phase has been steadily trickling out over the past few months. Preliminary plans for the site at 138 Willoughby Street call for a 59-storey tower by Extell Development Corporation with Kohn Pedersen Fox handling the design. The skyscraper would contain roughly 450 condominium units atop four levels of retail. The details of the scheme will likely change further before it is granted final approval.
