Composed of three contemporary towers on the southern side of the Williamsburg Bridge, 420 Kent Avenue is nearing completion of both exterior and interior work. Designed by ODA Architecture, the upcoming triplet of staggered glass boxes are some of the first new buildings to be constructed as part of the residential building boom that has spread across the Williamsburg waterfront. Spitzer Enterprises is the developer of the 800,000 square foot complex, and move-ins have now begun for its 850 rental apartments. Today, YIMBY has an exclusive look at views and interiors for the project, as well as an update from its developer Eliot Spitzer on the official launch of leasing.
As former Governor Mr. Spitzer told YIMBY, “After three years of construction, it’s a thrill to see residents in the lobby of 416 Kent. It is also rewarding to see members of the community enjoying our waterfront esplanade, and to see the extraordinary angles of the façade – that Eran Chen of ODA designed – create a marvelous new addition to the Brooklyn skyline.”
New photos show the interiors of some of the units, as well as the view looking out.
The views looking out are just as nice with vantage points of the World Trade Center, the Empire State Building and the entire span of the Williamsburg Bridge.
Ground floor retail is also going to be included, as well as a landscaped esplanade along the 400-foot long waterfront. The South Williamsburg ferry terminal is conveniently located less than five minutes away from the complex. The closest subway is to the east, at Marcy Avenue, where strap-hangers can grab the J or M trains.
The project is expected to be completed this year.
