25 Kent Avenue’s Scaffolding Comes Down As Its Facade Goes Up in Williamsburg

Located in Williamsburg along Kent Avenue, between North 12th Street and North 13th Street, the full-block, eight-story structure at 25 Kent Avenue will soon contain over half a million square feet of office space. Combining 15-foot high ceilings for the office floors with waterfront views of Manhattan and Bushwick Inlet Park, future tenants will also have access to multiple outdoor terraces stepping up to a landscaped rooftop. The project is being designed by Hollwich Kushner and Gensler, and developed by Rubenstein Partners and Heritage Equity Partners.

City Planning Commission Expected to Approve Eight-Story Office Building Planned at 25 Kent Avenue, Williamsburg

In early January, the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) kicked off for Heritage Equity Partners’ planned eight-story, 400,000-square-foot office/manufacturing building at 25 Kent Avenue, in northern Williamsburg. Now, the City Planning Commission is expected to support rezoning the block for the project, Crain’s reports. But the approval comes at the expense of the proposed neighborhood rezoning, which would establish an “Enhanced Business District” over most of the North Williamsburg Industrial Business Zone (IBZ), allowing for the surrounding blocks to be developed similar to 25 Kent Avenue. The rezoning would grant developers a boost in allowed commercial FAR in exchange for the inclusion of light manufacturing space, identical to a normal community facility FAR bonus. City Planning is expected to approve the application later this month, at which point the City Council will vote on the project. Mayor Bill de Blasio will complete the ULURP review if he decides to sign off on City Council’s pending approval. Rubenstein Partners is partnered in the project, and Gensler and Hollwich Kushner Architecture (a.k.a HWKN) is designing.
