Construction has topped out on 329 Broadway, a 17-story mixed-use residential tower in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Designed by Syndicate Architecture and developed by Parkview Management, the 195-foot-tall structure contains 175,000 square feet of newly built space. The development will feature 63 units, more than 59,000 square feet of retail area on the first two floors, and around 24,500 square feet of community facilities on the third and fourth floors. JLJ Capital recently provided $57 million in financing for the project.
Studio MDA will again present drawings to the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission for a proposed alteration and vertical expansion of 85 Franklin Street in Tribeca. The updated set of elevation models and renderings reveal modifications to the building’s façade above the third floor and geometric cornice details at the roof of the structure.
Exterior work is wrapping up on One South First, the tallest new building to be constructed in the Williamsburg waterfront development of Domino Park. Formally addressed as 260 Kent Avenue, the reinforced concrete structure rises on the northern end of the master plan and is part of the large-scale revitalization of the Domino Sugar factory site. The 435-foot-tall mixed-use project will soon yield 330 rentals, 66 affordable units, and 150,000 square feet of office space among 22 floors, as well as 13,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. COOKFOX is the architect of the tower and Two Trees Management is the developer.
Work on 187 Kent Avenue‘s exterior is nearing completion in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
