The architect behind a new Downtown Brooklyn medical center and office building at 620 Fulton Street has revealed images of the distinctive project.

The complex will hold a 65,000-square-foot medical center for members of the New York City Hotel and Hotel Trades Council, the union developing the project, New York YIMBY reported.

More than half of the building’s 70,000 square feet of office space can be leased to an outside tenant, a move that will add much-needed office space in an area where rezoning failed to achieve that aim, as the pro-development blog points out. The ground floor can accommodate 20,000 square feet of retail space.

The Francis Cauffman-designed building will rise 177 feet, With A Rooftop Terrace and more green space on the sixth-floor setback, according to YIMBY.
