The Landmarks Preservation Commission is reviewing proposals to install a new entrance marquee at the iconic Williamsburgh Savings Bank, in Brooklyn. The property’s official address is 175 Broadway, and it was originally constructed in 1875 by American architect George B. Post. The formidable structure most notably features a large domed tower and an adjacent low-rise structure.
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 550,000 square foot complex, and its 850 rental apartments will soon see move-ins commence. 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.
New renderings offer a first glimpse of the 400-foot waterfront esplanade to accompany Eliot Spitzer’s massive South Williamsburg rental complex, at 420 Kent Avenue.
Excavation has kicked off on two neighboring residential structures at 312-314 Keap Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and today YIMBY has an exclusive first look at renderings for the projects. The new buildings will each top-out at four stories, and will together comprise approximately 12,000 gross square feet.
Just a few blocks south of 25 Kent Avenue, located in the same Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, 187 Kent Avenue is a new seven-story mixed-use residential project rising between Metropolitan Avenue and North 3rd Street. Diego Aguilera Architects P.C. is the architect of record, and the site is being developed by CW Realty Management, who purchased it for $43 million, or $512 per square foot. The building is already a couple floors off the ground and will eventually stand around 85 feet tall, and contain a total of 140,036 square feet of space.
