Foundation Being Dug at First Domino Construction Site in Williamsburg

by

The beginnings of a pit have appeared at Domino Site E at 325 Kent Avenue since we last visited a month ago. Also new is a retaining wall on the east side of the site, not far from the adjacent construction site for 6 Wythe Lane townhouses.

The project broke ground in March. When we visited in late April, the site had been cleared. At left above, the ground is flat; at far right, digging of a pit has started.

When it’s finished in 2017, the 16-story building will have 500 rentals, including 105 affordable apartments. Designed by SHoP, the building will be clad in zinc and copper, with terraces and ground-floor retail. It also goes by the address 317 Kent Avenue.

Click through for lots more photos and three renderings, including a previously unpublished one that is posted on the fence.
