Say "Hello" to One Willoughby Square, Brooklyn's Newest 500-foot Office Building

It’s been two years since the project was announced, but renderings for One Willoughby Square have now been revealed to the Commercial Observer. FXFOWLE is designing a 495-foot office tower in Downtown Brooklyn. In the eyes of senior partner, Dan Kaplan, the building is being constructed in what he thinks are “the most classical New York-type buildings. Buildings that really started their lives as factories and lofts and feel very modern, but it wants to feel of its place as well.”


The Design:

  • The building itself will have glaze-blue bricks and factory-style windows that allow light to flood the space.
  • The concrete floors will be basically column-free, allowing for an open floor plan with 14-foot ceilings.
  • All the mechanics as well as the elevators and bathrooms will be located in the center of the building so every floor will have an even more open floor plan.
  • In typical FXFOWLE fashion, the designs include plenty of outdoor spaces, giving every other floor an outdoor balcony.
  • Three floors will also have 18-foot ceilings with terraces and loggias.

The Completion

The building is expected to be finished by early 2021, and some floors are already leased out by the New York City School Construction Authority. The second through sixth floors — 87,000 square-feet of space — will be home to a 300-seat school, which will have a separate entrance than that of the office space.
