another sizable tower is coming to Downtown Brooklyn courtesy of Long Island University.
It’s because of designs like this that glass boxes get a bad rap.
Hoping it is more just a massing and the design will be at least a little more interesting. I especially don’t like those flat roofs.
The deal, split among a $155.9 million building loan and a $69.7 million project loan, will fund a $300 million initiative to build a new residential tower on LIU’s campus in Fort Greene location. As described in prior reporting by Newsday , the development will consist of a residential high-rise, and a garage structure with a rooftop athletic field. A deed filed simultaneously with the mortgage paperwork shows RXR paying LIU $76.4 million for the site, a plot at 196 Willoughby Street near the intersection of Flatbush Avenue and DeKalb Avenue.
pretty early for the cocoon. Great update regardless.
