The pieces of Downtown Brooklyn's City Point megaproject are slowly coming together, and it looks like the third and final phase of the development—a residential building by Extell—is moving forward. YIMBY reports that the developer filed preliminary plans for the tower, which will rise 57 stories above Brooklyn at 138 Willoughby Street.
Though the plans aren't complete, they do reveal one crucial thing about the forthcoming tower: its height: It's expected to rise to 692 feet, which would make it one of the tallest buildings in Brooklyn, if not the tallest. (That could become moot if a planned 1,000-foot supertall rises along Flatbush Avenue, but that's a ways off.) The building, Extell's first Brooklyn development, would include a four-story retail base covering 65,000 square feet, with the tower rising above that. According to the filings, construction would begin in 2017, with the tower expected to be finished by 2020.
