    Target is old rumor. No longer valid. Century 21 is anchor in building 2, which is now under way. Anchor in building 1 is Armani Exchange.

    From Brownstoner:

    The Latest Look at City Point


    Categories: Brooklyn, Commercial Real Estate,Development, Downtown Brooklyn

    Here’s a rendering of the mixed-use City Point complex from architects Fox + Cook we haven’t seen before. It clearly shows the middle section of the complex that is being worked on right now, otherwise known as Phase II. This part consists of two tall residential rental towers as well as more retail space, and is built partly on the site of the old Dekalb Market. A 19-story tower will offeraffordable housing, while a 30-story tower will be market rate rentals. This phase of the development will also include a permanent Market Hall selling fresh food and showcasing Brooklyn vendors. The entire complex will be built in three phases. Phase I at One Dekalb was completed in the fall. The second phase is expected to wrap in 2015.

    Agree. The City Point render is nicer than the Zoofenster. It reminds me more of the MetLife buildings around Madison Sq. Park - which is a pretty damn favorable comparison. Hope they dont cheap out on materials and that this turns out well!

    Behold, The Giant Hole Where City Point's Phase 2 Will Rise

    Wednesday, June 5, 2013, by Jessica Dailey



    As part of their monthly City Point update, Brownstoner has some pretty awesome aerial views of the City Point site. Phase one, the boxy four-story retail complex at Fulton Street, is open for business, and phase two is underway. Currently, it pretty much just looks like a big dirt pit as the site is still being excavated, but crews are also pouring the foundation along Fleet and Gold Streets and installing underground mechanicals.
    [This view looks toward the northeast]
    Phase two, as you can see from the above diagram, extends between Flatbush Avenue and Fulton Street, with Albee Square running along the west side and Fleet Street on the east. It will hold 600,000-square-feet of retail and another 630,000-square-feet of residential. City Point's website says it should be complete by 2015.

    [This photo shows phase one on the left]
    And here's what it will look like when it's done:
