Back in January, we wrote a post putting together the mounting evidence for the case that Avalon Bay was preparing to buy the cluster of lots at the corner of Willoughby and Bridge Streets in Downtown Brooklyn to put up a large residential tower; we even unearthed some early renderings and references in SEC filings to an entity called Avalon Willoughby LLC. Today, the Brooklyn Eagle reports that Avalon has filed plans with the Department of Buildings for a 58-story rental building which, if built, would top the Brooklyner, the soon-to-be-completed project by the Clarett Group at 111 Lawrence Street. The Avalon development would have 860 units. “We see a big demand for apartments,” Stephanie Cuba, project manager for AvalonBay.
