Construction has topped out on the 16-story, 522-unit mixed-use building under development at 325 Kent Avenue, located between South 3rd and 4th streets in western Williamsburg. The building’s roof stands 170 feet above street level, although the additional height from the bulkhead isn’t specified in documents. The structure measures 401,246 square feet. There will be 9,378 square feet of retail on parts of the ground and second floors. The residential units should average 712 square feet and twenty percent (105 units) will rent at below market rates through the housing lottery. The project is the first building to top out within the five-building Domino Sugar Refinery mega-development. Two Trees Management Company is the developer. SHoP Architects is the design architect and Ismael Leyva Architects is the executive architect. Completion is anticipated next year.
An anonymous Bronx-based LLC has filed applications for a six-story, 20-unit residential building at 1135 Clay Avenue, in the West Bronx’s Fleetwood-Concourse Village section. The project will measure 20,695 square feet and its residential units should average 838 square feet apiece. The units will range from studios to two-bedrooms and will probably be rentals. Paul E. Jennings’s Brooklyn-based Freeform + Deform is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 4,876-square-foot site is currently occupied by a dilapidated two-story structure. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The 167th Street stop on the D train is eight blocks away.
New renderings, depicting the final design, are now available for the 25-story, 115-unit mixed-use building under development at 565 Broome Street (a.k.a. 100 Varick Street), in Hudson Square. The renderings come as sales have launched for the project’s condominiums. The latest building permits indicate the structure will eventually encompass 322,154 square feet and rise 290 feet above street level to its roof, which doesn’t include the bulkhead.

A new era is about to dawn for a SoHo building.
