Exterior wall installation is progressing at COOKFOX's City Point phase two towers. Phase Two includes 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.
A podium with 660,000 square feet of retail is also included in phase two of the project. Tenants for the retail portion will include Century 21, CityTarget, Alamo Drafthouse, various other smaller scale shops, and a food market. A central street will run through the ground floor retail and allow a public connection between Flatbush Avenue and Gold Street.
Phase Three will be developed later and would include a third tower, the tallest of the development, for office and residential.
