One Willoughby Square, FXFOWLE’s 500-foot office tower in Downtown Brooklyn

FXFOWLE have released renderings for their 495′ office tower at One Willoughby Square (Downtown Brooklyn). JEMB Realty, developers of the project have finalized a deal with the city for the 3,132 SqFt lots. Originally their plans were to construct a 65-storey/700′ condo (with the help of our friends at KPF), but in order to gain air rights from NYCEDC they had to settle for an office complex by our friends at FXFOWLE. Says Dan Kaplan, FXFOWLE partner, the tower will be rooted in what he thinks are the “most classical New York-type buildings.” However, notably, the building will not have a glass curtain facade, and office floor plans with be open with few columns and obstructions. The building will also house a 300-seat school, as well as several “super-floors” which will feature 18′ ceilings, terraces, and loggias.
