A genuinely interesting-looking building is coming to the Fort Greene/Downtown Brooklyn border and, astonishingly, it will contain zero apartments. The 12-story building at 620 Fulton Street is being developed by Health Center Inc. and will include a 65,000-square-foot health center, 20,000 square feet of retail, and 70,000 square feet of office space. (40,000 square feet of the office space has already been leased by an as-of-yet unnamed tenant.) The design, from architect Francis Cauffman, is born from the lot's triangular shape and features a "distinctive teardrop form and textured glass façade with frits and fins." The developers hope to break ground in the spring and have the building ready to open by fall of 2016.
