The facade on Douglaston Development’s 1 North 4th Place is now rising, and the 40-story tower is taking its place front and center on the Williamsburg waterfront. Designed by FXFowle, the latest of the Northside Piers towers will have 510 units, and – per the website – extensive amenity features, as the neighborhood’s “first highrise rental project.”
Though the tower is over 400 feet tall, 1 North 4th is removed from the heart of Williamsburg, so its impact is only noticeable within a few blocks of the East River. While 40 floors is somewhat large, it is nothing out of the ordinary for New York, which shows how short the Williamsburg skyline is.
The biggest change to come will be the SHoP-designed Domino redevelopment to the west of 1 North 4th Place, which will contain four towers that are over 500 feet tall. Combined, the projects will add over 2,700 new residential units to the waterfront, invigorating the only part of Williamsburg where pedestrians remain relatively scarce.
Completion of 1 North 4th is slated for 2014, and units will range from studios to three-bedrooms.
