As the future Brooklyn skyline takes shape, one of the borough’s largest office towers-to-be, a 36-story commercial skyscraper, is slated to rise at 625 Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Brooklyn-based Rabsky Group purchased the lot for $158 million and, as The Real Deal reports, plans are in the works to create 700,000 square feet of leasable space, for which the developer is in talks with City Planning to take advantage of a plaza bonus. Albo Liberis (see Williamsburg’s William Vale Hotel) has been commissioned as the architect, and while no design has been officially revealed or finalized by Rabsky, the firm’s site does offer up some insight into what is being considered for the game-changing tower.

Of the two iterations showcased, the first shows a flat-topped tower with a sweeping diagonal prow near the project’s Fulton Street end; the other shows a mostly-glass monolith that cantilevers over a gracefully curving lobby.

Both depictions show a free-standing tower that will allow pedestrians to stroll through the block. According to The Real Deal, MPFP has been tapped as the landscape architect.
