With a four-story retail complex ready to open along Brooklyn’s Fulton Street Mall, City Point’s second phase, designed by Cook+Fox with Lee Weintraub Landscape Architecture, is ready to move forward. Phase two consists of two residential towers—standing 19 and 30 stories and holding a combined 650 units—sitting atop a 500,000-square-foot retail podium. “The whole project is envisioned conceptually as one project, a big mixed-use transit-oriented development,” said Cook+Fox partner Rick Cook. “This is a perfect spot for a tall building in Brooklyn.”

Great project. Will go nicely with all the other high-rise development planned. The increased retail will only make Brooklyn an even bigger go-to destination.

Love it! I would definitely love to see downtown Brooklyn grow and really function as a downtown for Brooklyn, right now the area is still a little rough, but projects like this are definitely promising.

Definitely setting a standard for outer borough development. Watch out Downtown Jersey City!

Downtown Brooklyn, only continuing to improve. I'm still surprised no one capitalised on the area earlier considering its location and infrastructure.

This is one of the other projects in Brooklyn that's making continuous progress. This along with 2 more towers(388 Bridge Street and Avalon Willoughby West) Along with the new approved NYU CUSP, things are looking great for Brooklyn.

I do hope they reduce the amount of parking spaces, I read an article about parking garages in the Downtown that are like 50% full. Would be better use for Office space and Retail.

Plus with the new stadium, I would be surprised to see downtown Brooklyn push more that way, which could lead to some really interesting dynamics.

And there's still a phase 3.

It's prime time for the outer boroughs. Via Verde in the Hub, condos sprouting across Flushing. Then there are the new trendy hoods like LIC, Astoria, Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Harlem/Wash Heights. Upcoming Bay Ridge, Sunset Park, Pelham Parkway, Bedford Park/Norwood, Parkchester. Sooner even Grand Concourse, ect.

I'd ultimately like to see that stretch of Flatbush between Downtown and Atlantic grow upwards. How likely that is and the timeframe I'm not sure, but I can hope.

Make that building wider taller and even LESS interesting and then put one up nect to it TWICE as high. THere's GOT to be a way to squeeze in a million more people.

UGH!
