The piecemeal redevelopment of the Brooklyn waterfront has taken another substantial step forward, as Two Trees’ new building at 325 Kent Avenue is now complete. The 16-story building was designed by SHoP Architects, and is the first phase of the Domino redevelopment on the Williamsburg waterfront to begin construction and open its doors.
A single story warehouse is about to be torn down to make way for a six-story mixed-use structure in the southernmost corner of Williamsburg, at 334 Flushing Avenue.
It was only last summer that the latest major addition to Williamsburg’s nascent office development boom had received a special permit from the City. Now, construction on 25 Kent Avenue is well underway, with the latest from 5B Films showing the first floor beginning to rise.
Permits were filed for 535 Lorimer Street back in December of 2014, and YIMBY posted the first renderings for the project in August of 2015. Foundation work had begun when we last checked in as of March 2016, and today, we have an updated look at what the building will soon look like, as it approaches completion.
Multi-block redevelopments are becoming commonplace in the formerly industrial areas that border the burgeoning residential blocks of northwest Brooklyn, and now another major site has been added to the list. Yesterday, City Planning approved the Pfizer redevelopment in South Williamsburg, which will see the derelict 4.2-acre site completely revitalized.
