Work is progressing at COOKFOX Architects' massive, three-phase mixed use development, City Point, in Downtown Brooklyn. The first phase, completed in 2012, contains a four-story, 50,000 square foot retail building, clad in white and pale gray terra cotta. Phase two will add 660,000 gross square feet of retail, along with 225,000 gross square foot affordable housing tower and a 335,000 gross square foot market-rate housing tower. The material palette of Phase Two appears to draw from that of Phase One, with the additional use of wood, limestone, and metal panels. The third and final phase of the project includes a 600,000 gross square foot tower, the largest in the development, fronting on Willoughby Street.
