Looks pretty good. Nice to have some office towers mixed in with the new residential and hotels.

Mods should change thread title to 600 ft.

Plans for 420 Albee Square were first filed over a year ago. They initially called for a 65-story tower with 650 apartments and over 270,000 square feet of commercial space on the lower floors. Another round of applications scaled the building down to 35 stories in March, and those plans detailed a 232,000-square-foot project with 248 apartments and 36,500 square feet of commercial space on the first four stories.

Now the city has persuaded the site’s developer, JEMB, to switch the development to office space.

This is big news, because the rezonings of downtown Brooklyn and Long Island City were done to encourage office development in those areas, but residential has been eating away pretty much all new development in either place.


Quote:
Manhattan-based JEMB Realty will construct a 400,000 square-foot office tower at 420 Albee Square, between Fulton and Willoughby streets—a development the administration said is part of its goal of meeting the demand citywide for 60 million square feet of office space expected during the next decade.

“Office buildings are our factories – whether for tech, creative or traditional industries we must continue to grow our modern factories to create new jobs,” said United States Senator Chuck Schumer. “This project is yet another step in the push to create a new commercial business district in Downtown Brooklyn that goes back to the Group of 35 Report I commission over 10 years ago. Tech is booming in Brooklyn – and these are businesses that only want to grow in Brooklyn – Brooklyn is in their DNA. We must make sure adequate commercial space exists to allow continued job growth. Kudos to Mayor de Blasio for this forward thinking development and the larger goal of adding 3.1 million square feet of new office space in Downtown Brooklyn.”

And praise from the CB...


Quote:
"With a vacancy rate of 3.5 percent in Downtown Brooklyn, the building that is planned cannot be built fast enough," said Community Board 2 Chairperson Shirley A. McRae. "The community board hopes this is the first of several new commercial buildings."


Tallest office building in Brooklyn...


http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articl...e-demand-rises

Quote:
New York City officials announced plans for what may be Brooklyn’s tallest building, a 600-foot (180-meter) office tower in the borough’s downtown.

...If completed today, the building would be the tallest in Brooklyn, said Elie Gamburg, the senior designer for the project with the architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates PC. There are a number of residential projects under consideration that may end up taller, he said.
At 600 feet, the new office tower would surpass 388 Bridge St., a 590-foot apartment tower completed last year in downtown Brooklyn, according to research firm Emporis.com. For decades, the borough’s tallest office tower, at 512 feet, had been 1 Hanson Place, a 1929 building that was converted to apartments about 10 years ago.

Quote:
With much fanfare, city officials and developer Jemb Realty Monday officially announced a 35-story commercial building to be built at 420 Albee Square. The announcement was heavy on prepared statements of support from local politicians but light on the details, such as when construction might start or end. The building was no secret, however, as permits were filed in March.

At 35 stories and with 400,000 square feet of office and retail space, the building will be one of Brooklyn’s tallest. It is part of a trend of skyscrapers coming to downtown that includes a planned 1,000-foot tower at 340 Flatbush Avenue Extension next to beloved Brooklyn icon Junior’s Cheesecake.

Firm reveals plans for Brooklyn’s tallest building

By Rich Calder
November 10, 2015


Quote:
City officials and developer Morris Bailey of JEMB Realty unveiled plans Monday to build a 40-story, 600-foot-high tower with 400,000 square feet of office space at 420 Albee Square in the heart of downtown Brooklyn.

The project, which is expected to break ground next year and be completed by 2018, would surpass a 590-foot-high residential tower at 388 Bridge St. in height — although other Brooklyn projects in the pipeline could potentially be taller, including a 1,000-foot-high mixed-use building proposed for 340 Flatbush Ave. Extension.

Perhaps if this had been in Manhattan where there is more demand, it would have been. But it's a start, and Brooklyn needs the office space.

But this is what I have been saying about New York's office buildings, and the need to continually build. It's a city that just can't rely on office stock built over 50 years ago, and why sometimes older buildings have to get demolished. Our buildings aren't just here for show.

3.1 msf is just a drop in the bucket overall citywide, but it's a significant amount of new office space added to Downtown Brooklyn where a lot of residential development is taking place. I wonder what other developers in the area the city can or will target for a "flip".

Report: Brooklyn in midst of high-end office building boom

BY LAUREN GILL
February 12, 2015


Quote:
Brooklyn is no longer Manhattan’s back office!

Developers are erecting high-end office buildings across the borough, and real estate experts say big companies are now rushing to relocate inside them so they can tap into the local talent pool — bucking Kings County’s image as a place to stash away support staff in cheap digs

.....Demand is so high, some developers are ditching their plans for luxury residential towers to create swanky office complexes instead.

In October, Glacier Global Partners abandoned a condominium project inside a Dumbo waterfront warehouse to fit it out for businesses. And the next month, Jemb Realty announced it was scrapping a planned apartment building Downtown — which boasts some of the lowest vacancy rates in the city — to create a 40-story commercial building.

Jemb claims businesses are now beating down its door to snag space in its Albee Square West building — the first new office tower to rise Downtown in more than a decade — when it opens in 2018.

“They want us to build faster and they’re very excited to get in there,” said president Jacob Jerome.


Jerome says around 80 percent of the businesses looking at the building are creative companies hoping to move out of the overcrowded Manhattan market to the borough many of their employees call home.

“People want to live and work in Brooklyn,” he said.

Awwwwwww....... damn.

Thats a buzz kill.

I was like jesus, did this fly under the radar.

Yeah that's the problem that arises with so many construction or towers planned right next to each other. In many cases, on the same block.

Can anybody verify that this is above the ground though?

JEMB AND FOREST CITY RATNER TO TEAM UP TO BRING NEW OFFICE TOWER TO DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN

Sep 12, 2016
Benjamin Mazzara

Quote:

According to Forest City Ratner CEO MaryAnne Gilmartin, One Willoughby will be the first modern office tower in Downtown Brooklyn since Forest City’s own Metrotech Center and the first speculative ground-up office development in Downtown Brooklyn in decades. As developer and minority partner, Forest City will take an equity stake in the project, which was announced late last year as part of the city's efforts to make Downtown Brooklyn the anchor of the Brooklyn Tech Triangle.

Potential new design...


http://therealdeal.com/2016/09/12/fo...-office-tower/

Quote:
JEMB, led by Morris Bailey, bought the development site on Willoughby Street in 2014 for $38.5 million and quickly ratcheted up plans to construct a 620-unit, 700-foot residential building. But a logjam of residential buildings coming to market and the city’s subsequent $15.5 million sale of 120,000 square feet of air rights and 3,000 square feet of land next door last year convinced JEMB to change tack.

Now, a partner with significant interest in ground-up office construction has focused the project even further, according to the Wall Street Journal.
“Morris’ team was open to sitting down and looking at the project anew,” MaryAnne Gilmartin, president and CEO of Forest City Ratner, told the Journal.

The partners haven’t yet determined the budget or design but are looking to secure an anchor tenant, Gilmartin said. Forest City Ratner is a minority equity partner on 420 Albee, but the size of its stake is unclear. Construction is expected to begin in 2017.

I kinda wish this would be Brooklyn's tallest or at least a 2nd tallest. Has a very 181 Fremont vibe going on (San Francisco). Would surely complement 9 Dekalb.

I doubt it would be tallest, but who knows what they will do. They may want something with a little "flair" of their own.

I like it! It looks somewhat similar to Times Square Tower.

IDEALLY LOCATED IN THE DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN TECH TRIANGLE




Quote:
One Willoughby Square will be a 505,000 square-foot best-in-class boutique office tower built to the highest architectural standards. The Property will feature a unique and elegant façade integrating glass and pre-cast panels as well as two set-backs creating the illusion that sections of the building are floating. Development will combine the highest quality design, construction, interior finishing, as well as feature one of Downtown Brooklyn’s premium amenity packages. Soaring 36 stories above the city, One Willoughby Square will be among the tallest structures in Brooklyn, providing panoramic 360-degree sight-lines of New York Harbor, the Lower Manhattan skyline and Brooklyn.

Furthermore, the Property will benefit from its strategic location adjacent to a planned underground parking garage and one-acre Willoughby Square Park which also serves as a building amenity and provides the lower floors of the Property with park views and permanently protected light and air.

JEMB Realty’s One Willoughby Square will be the first speculative ground-up office development project in Downtown Brooklyn in decades. Construction of this major venture is expected to get underway in the fourth quarter of 2016.

I was expecting something different ever since they brought in a new partner.

Either way, it's a development that Downtown Brooklyn needs. More office space in the core.
