AVA DoBro, also known as Avalon Willoughby West and by its address of 100 Willoughby, is a residential high-rise building in Downtown Brooklyn, New York City.[3] It surpassed 388 Bridge Street as the tallest in the borough,[4] beating it by less than 10 feet (3 m).[5] It was overtaken by The Hub later in 2016. A large building, it has 826 units over 57 floors,[3] the dark blue facade started going up in October 2014.[6] As of July 2015, the tower has topped out,[7] as part of the development, a new entrance to the Jay Street – MetroTech station of the New York City Subway was built, including an elevator.[8]
