The Architects Newspaper has a story fleshing out the design plans for the second phase of City Point in Downtown Brooklyn, which will consist of two rental towers designed by Cook+Fox with Lee Weintraub Landscape Architecture. The Flatbush Avenue towers will be 19 and 30 stories. Here’s what Cook+Fox partner Rick Cook says about the look that the firm will strive for: “‘We intend to play off a similar fenestration pattern and skin’ of the first phase, Cook said, which could incorporate the same custom-glazed white terra-cotta tiles. Landscaped areas are subtly incorporated into the site and on the rooftops. ‘We’ve created a series of recesses on the street wall where we could incorporate green spaces,” Cook said. A glass market hall leads through the site to the planned Willoughby Park by Michael Van Valkenburgh. A future third phase calls for an even taller building that Cook said will anchor the corner with a strong sense of verticality.” Other reports have said that the towers are expected to be completed in 2015 and 2016. The Architects Newspaper notes that construction of the second phase will displace DeKalb Market, but there are hopes that it might be able to operate on the site of the planned third phase of City Point. On the jump, the larger rendering for the project that we’ve already seen.
