While we have no idea if the renderings above by architect Jared Bertels are the renderings, they certainly are another compelling piece of evidence in the case we've been building that Avalon Bay is indeed buying the group of properties at Willoughby and Bridge Streets in Downtown Brooklyn with the intention of building a large tower on the site. (The zoning allows up to 800,000 square feet.) Another piece of evidence: Scroll down to the second page of this SEC filing and behold the existence of a company called "Avalon Willoughby LLC." The interesting thing about the filing is that it was made back in 2007, suggesting this plan has been in the works for sometime. That, or they have another project on a different Willoughby Street on the West Coast. View sketches for the project on the jump.
