Plans Revealed For 600-Foot Downtown Brooklyn Office Tower
Rendering:In a move that's nearly unprecedented these days, a residential tower slated to rise in Downtown Brooklyn will instead give way to office space. The tower to come at 420 Albee Square, a site bound by Gold and Duffield streets and Willoughby and Fulton streets, was announced on Monday by NYCEDC Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen with JEMB Realty. According to the Brooklyn Eagle (and a few other sources), the tower will rise 40 stories and 600 feet, making it the second tallest building in the borough only behind the 1,000-foot residential tower that developer JDS is plotting just a few blocks away. The tower will bring 400,000 square feet of office space to the area, nd will be accompanied by commercial space, parking, and green space.
