Kasowitz Represents Forest City Ratner and JEMB Realty in Deal for New Public School in Downtown Brooklyn

Kasowitz represented the joint venture between Forest City Ratner and JEMB Realty in a real estate deal with New York City to develop an 87,000-square-foot public school at One Willoughby Square in the new 36-story office tower located in downtown Brooklyn at Albee Square. The building and the public school are expected to open in early 2021.

One Willoughby Square is the first major commercial development project to be launched in downtown Brooklyn since the area was rezoned in 2004.
