Construction of the CityPoint Retail Facility and DeKalb Market

Construction of the CityPoint Retail Facility and DeKalb Market Construction of the CityPoint Retail Facility and DeKalb Market Construction of the CityPoint Retail Facility and DeKalb Market



One DeKalb Avenue and 138 Willoughby Street, Brooklyn
A Project of the Economic Development Corporation, Acadia Realty Trust, and Washington Square Partners
Cook + Fox Architects
Lee Weintraub Landscape Architecture

The CityPoint retail facility and DeKalb Market are the first phase of a 1.8-million-square-foot mixed-used development in Downtown Brooklyn. Anchored on Albee Square along Fulton Mall, the retail facility's dynamic geometry effectively engages the public plaza while deferring to the adjacent landmarked 1908 Dime Savings Bank. The building's white and pale grey terra-cotta cladding is mercurial in the changing light, and the expansive fenestration captures and reflects the neighborhood fabric. The temporary market occupies the footprint of the future build-out, activating what would otherwise be an empty lot and establishing CityPoint as a retail destination before the development is complete.
