44-Story, 270-Unit Mixed-Use Building Proposed At 141 Willoughby Street, Downtown Brooklyn

August 19, 2015 By Reid Wilson

Savanna has filed applications for a variance to build a 44-story, 310,000 square-foot mixed-use building at 141 Willoughby Street, in Downtown Brooklyn. In exchange for the rezoning, 30 percent of the building’s 270 residential units would be set aside as affordable. At the base, 28,000 square feet of retail space would span the ground and second floors, in addition to 34,000 square feet of office space on the third and fourth floors, according to The Real Deal. An existing three-story building must first be demolished.

Savanna Partners' 141 Willoughby Street Readies for Demolition
March 23, 2017
Last fall, Savanna received the go-ahead to build a mixed-use tower at 141 Willoughby Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Now, the three-story building once the home of the Institute of Design and Construction is being prepped for demolition. The building was sold to investment firm Savanna Partners in 2014 for $28 million and the then nearly 70-year-old architectural school closed its doors in 2015. Demolition permits were filed last year and since then the building’s storefronts have been boarded up

first news on this in awhile.

Savanna purchases vacant DoBro lot next to Willoughby Street project

The company bought 385 Gold Street from the city’s Economic Development Corporation, according to property records. The parcel has been earmarked for “public open space,” which typically refers to some type of parkland.
The site is located adjacent to the 44-story, mixed-use project Savanna is planning at 141 Willoughby Street.

this will be a 360' office tower. Great news for Downtown Brooklyn, more office space amongst the huge residential boom.

The proposed 360-foot-tall development will yield 363,336 square feet, with 310,077 square feet designated for office space. The steel-based structure will have retail on the cellar and ground floor levels. Previously Savanna Fund received the go-ahead to build a mixed-use building with 203 apartments as well as commercial space.
