The Piet Boon-designed The Oosten in South Williamsburg has risen to about six and a half out of its total seven stories, we saw when we stopped by Sunday. Workers have also started covering parts of the structure in gypsum and fiberglass insulating panels.
The building has risen to its full height on at least one of its corners, but still has one more story coming elsewhere, as the photos and previously published rendering below show.
The Oosten is one of the more ambitious luxury developments going up in Brooklyn right now, and it’s smack dab in the middle of Hasidic Williamsburg. It will contain 216 units when it’s finished, including townhouses, as we have reported previously.
The building, located at 429 Kent Avenue, launched sales in September, with prices ranging from $710,000 for a one-bedroom to $3,635,000 for four-bedroom, 3.5-bath townhouses. The developer is Chinese firm XIN Development.
