Glassy Facade Nears Top at Ava DoBro


The glassy facade of Brooklyn’s tallest tower has nearly reached the top floor on two sides. Originally slated to be complete in the third quarter of this year, Ava DoBro at 100 Willoughby Street in Downtown Brooklyn launched leasing earlier this month for units on the first six floors. Move-ins are expected to start August 14.

Pre-construction condo sales are nothing new, but we haven’t seen too many cases of renter move-ins while construction is still under way. The building does not yet have a certificate of occupancy, according to the Department of Building’s website.

Formerly known as Avalon Willoughby West, the building was renamed Ava DoBro in March. The 35-story building stands 595 tall and will have 861 apartments when complete. Its long list of amenities include indoor and outdoor lounges, a fire pit and barbeques on the 30th floor, heated indoor and outdoor pet runs, and 24-hour concierge service, as we have reported before.

The developer is AvalonBay and the architect is SLCE.

It is one of three related developments from the same developer. The first, a rental building named Avalon Willoughby, opened at 343 Gold Street several years ago. The third will be called Avalon Willoughby Square, and will be located at 214 Duffield Street, but it is actually part of the same building as Ava DoBro.
