7 DeKalb

The City Point development.

Construction has wrapped up at COOKFOX's 7 DeKalb, part of phase two of the City Point development in Downtown Brooklyn. Developed by BFC Partners, Washington Square Partners and Acadia Realty Trust, the 23-story, 225,000 square foot tower is now almost fully rented, with only a handful of its 250 units remaining.

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, Target, 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. 

The tower is clad in a unitized metal panel system of light grey zinc that will patina and age over time.
