Developments:

Willoughby Square:
"Willoughby Square is proposed south of MetroTech to establish a corporate address for the new commercial office buildings and to provide an attractive environment for evening and weekend use by residents and employees. The space would include cafes, restaurants and new retail establishments.

A triangular park is proposed on Flatbush Avenue Extension at the entrance to Willoughby Street. This park will provide a gateway from the Fort Greene community to Willoughby Square and the new commercial core office buildings." Downtown Brooklyn Plan (http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcp/html/dwnbklyn2/dwnbklynplan12.shtml)


City Point:
"The 125,000-square-foot site anchors the eastern end of the Fulton Street Mall area, bounded by Willoughby Street and Flatbush Extension to the north, Fleet Street to the east, DeKalb Avenue to the south, and Gold Street/Albee Square West to the west."
"City Point is a unique mixed-use development that is driving the ongoing renaissance and revitalization of Downtown Brooklyn. It is the only project of its kind to offer the ideal combination of office, retail and a mixture of affordable and market-rate rental housing. City Point will be the first major commercial project constructed in accordance with New York City's 2004 Downtown Brooklyn Plan and is slated for completion in 2010." (http://www.citypointnyc.com/)

117 Livingston Street/29 Gallatin Place:
"The Treeline Companies completed the ground lease for the property at 29 Gallatin Place, representing a currently unused portion of the flagship Macy's department store property in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn. The Treeline Companies will undertake an extensive redevelopment of the unused portion of the property to produce approximately 100,000 rentable square feet of Class-A office space." from Real Estate Weekly, 2005 (http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m3601/is_10_52/ai_n15781262/)
