Eliot Spitzer’s three-tower, $750 million mega-project will soon rise along the waterfront just south of the Williamsburg Bridge. New renderings of the development and photos of the construction site were posted this week by 6sqft.
Development at 416-420 Kent Avenue — the former Kedem winery — was stalled for years until real estate company Spitzer Enterprises snapped up the plot in 2014. Spitzer soon signed on Brooklyn architecture powerhouse ODA to design the structures, and they followed through in their usual form with buildings that look like irregularly stacked boxes.
The latest renderings show some slight changes from previous designs — mostly in the sizes of the rectangular massing and a reduced reveal where the windowed walls meet the base of the two-tower structure on the right.
The tower at 420 Kent will be 18 stories tall and the other pair will both be 24 stories tall. The development will boast oodles of outdoor space, including rooftop pools, courtyards, and private terraces.
With 856 total apartments — roughly 170 of which will be reserved for low-income residents — this development is one of the largest residential projects in the works in Brooklyn today. The site is being cleared and construction is expected to start soon, according to 6sqft.
