Foundation work appears to be complete where a 22-story, 252-unit mixed-use building is under development at 416 Kent Avenue, in Williamsburg near the East River.

That site was cleared of commercial low-rises earlier this year.

Spitzer Enterprises has filed applications with City Planning for a roughly 414,700 square-foot mixed-use building at 451 10th Avenue, in the Hudson Yards district.
