VDA worked on Phase 2 of the City Point project consisting of full services for the retail complex on levels SC, C, and 1-5 which included twenty-three (23) elevators and twenty-two (22) escalators. Construction for City Point located in downtown Brooklyn began in 2007 and now eight years later the project is nearing completion! Phase 2 of construction will bring diverse new housing, with green roofs, retail, and a new streetscape to support and connect the neighborhood.
The second phase of this construction will include a 19-story, 225,000 square foot affordable housing tower clad in a unitized metal panel system and a 30-story, 335,000 square foot market-rate housing tower clad in a unitized terra cotta panel system. The design of the taller tower features a stepped form with setbacks at floors 5,11,18, and 24. In total, the two towers will bring 690 residential units to the neighborhood when completed.
