The second phase of this 1.8-million-square-foot mixed-use development includes the extension of the retail base and construction of two residential towers, one market-rate and the other affordable. Building on the success of the first phase, the retail façades are clad in the same white and pale grey terra cotta, but feature a modular expression evocative of the shipping containers used in the temporary DeKalb Market. Each tower has a distinct façade treatment that is brought to grade to contribute to a lively and varied street wall, and the large lofted market hall provides a bustling mid-block connection. Crowned with an expansive landscaped rooftop, Phase II of City Point promises a bright and sustainable future for Downtown Brooklyn.
