NEW YORK | City Point Brooklyn | 110m | 360ft | 30 fl | 19 fl | T/O

City Point is a three tower development located at the DeKalb Market area of downtown Brooklyn. Initially the last tower of the now nearly-completed highrise section was to be a skyscraper. A new developer has come into the picture for that tower which will be a skyscraper and is tentatively known as 138 Willoughby.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



The tower is proposed for downtown brooklyn. according to emporis and other sources it will have 65 floors (or more). [The tallest tower proposal is controversial and subject to revision]





from emporis:

Name: City Point
Alternative name: The Center at Albee Square

Main address: 1 Dekalb Avenue
Virtual address: 126-140 Willoughby Street
Address as text: Willoughby Street at Flatbush Avenue Extension, SW corner
Block: 149
Neighborhood: Downtown
District: Brooklyn

Floors (above ground): 65

also, emporis mentions a completition date in 2011(!) but that seems highly unlikely.

Citypoint Tower: 65 Stories on Flatbush

Quote:
The Citypoint website for the project that is going up on the site of the Albee Square Mall doesn't go out of its way to highlight the height of the tower that will rise with the huge development planned for the site. (Brownstoner first drew attention to the site on Monday.) In fact, most renderings of the project has downplayed the tall building. A small rendering appears on the project's website and a somewhat larger one has popped up on the Greenberg Farrow website. The building is planned at 65 stories, far taller than the Williamsburgh Savings Bank building, which is Brooklyn's tallest structure. Here's what the architect's website has to say about the development:

City Point will enliven an already bustling office and retail district in the heart of Brooklyn. Next to the Metrotech office complex and along two major thoroughfares in central Brooklyn, this 1.9 million square foot development features over 500,000 square feet of retail, approximately 280 hotel rooms and 800 residential units along with 250,000 square feet of offices. This signature tower will rise to over 65 stories, rising above the Brooklyn skyline.

Is 65 stories too tall for Flatbush Avenue? Will there be any questions raised about the size of the Citypoint tower? Stay tuned.

FINALLY a building that tall for Brooklyn. I really hope this gets approved and built, it would be absolutely awesome if NYC's skyline could spread out into all boroughs. Imagine it, an ocean of skyscrapers.

I don't want to be rude but don't get over your head, HK999. I understand that you are enthusiast just like any other NY fan but getting info from Emporis and a project located in NY just doesn't go together. I'd like to know 'the other sources' you stated in your post.

lol, that's because HK has no 200m+ projects going on right now except the New World Centre which is currently under prep. and ICC is completed.

there are three sources to back up this proposal:

1. emporis
2. CTBUH, see here http://buildingdb.ctbuh.org/?do=buil...ilding_id=8981. it also says 65 floors but the height still remains unknown.
3. several articels, i posted one above.

don't worry, i'm not going to create a thread simply based on speculation or from hearsay.

if this is 65 stories tall and not all residential than shouldn't it be much taller than around 650ft? not to mention the spire. perhaps more around 800? :S

that's the why the title says "656ft+". we don't know the exact height.

Developers Unveil Renderings For Brooklyn's Tallest Building



Quote:
Here it is — Brooklyn’s tallest building!

Developers showed off this rendering of the skyscrapers planned for the former Albee Square Mall — the long-stalled Downtown City Point retail and residential complex on Flatbush Avenue Extension between Willoughby Street and DeKalb Avenue.

The mock-ups, which were presented to Community Board 2 earlier today, showed two gargantuan skyscrapers on Flatbush. The plan needs the approval of the city before it can move forward.

The two towers — the taller of which could rise to 65 stories or more — would be completed in 2015 and 2016, according to Paul Travis, of Washington Square Partners, which is part of the team of developers behind the plan.
Here's a look at the retail component:

While the towers await final approval, the retail base of City Point is already under construction:

Quote:
first phase of the mixed-use CityPoint is opening this summer. It will mean 50,000 square feet of retail just along Fulton Street. A second and third phase, consisting of half-a-million square feet of retail and 1,000 more residential units, will break ground this year

A year ago at the same site:

Hopefully the newer tower designs will get approved so this puppy can rise skyward.

That first building is pretty much done going by the pics on SSP. Hopefully the tower is up in the 800ft + range.

Awesome. I've got my fingers crossed for the population to accept their full height, and be built soon.
