Douglaston Development’s fourth and final tower on the Williamsburg waterfront topped out yesterday at 2 North 6th Place.
PR reps for the project sent along a fresh rendering and a new construction photo of the latest progress at the site between North 6th and North 7th streets on the East River. The 40-story building will reach 398 feet into the air and span more than half a million square feet.
By the time construction wraps, 2 North 6th will hold 554 rental apartments and 512,755 square feet of residential space. There will be a 678-square-foot retail space on the ground floor, topped by several stories’ worth of small apartments. Several duplexes will occupy parts of the first and second floors, and floors three through eight will host anywhere from 24 to 33 units each. The ninth floor will be devoted to amenities, including a pool, hot tub, landscaped outdoor terrace, gym, and lounge. The 10th through 36th floors will host anywhere between seven to 11 larger units apiece.
A 160-car garage will fill one of the cellar levels, and building permits indicate that all the underground levels will be flood-proofed. The development will also include a 510-car surface parking lot, which may be shared among all of Douglaston’s waterfront towers.
Stephen B. Jacobs Group – which also designed the Edge towers – teamed up with Douglaston again to serve as lead architects on 2 North 6th.
Once this tower is complete, the firm’s quartet of buildings will include 2,000 apartments, 500 of which will remain affordable “in perpetuity,” according to a press release. (Most of those affordable units are in The Edge, which has 565 condos and 347 below-market rental units.) They’ve also developed two acres of public parkland, one of the busiest East River ferry docks, and more than 60,000 square feet of retail.

678-square-foot retail space on the ground floor? is it too small?
