As Brooklynites continue to fret over a possible L train shutdown, at least one of the area’s luxury towers has come up with a tony alternative for its residents in the case of public transit deprivation.
Preliminary pricing and a teaser site with renderings are out for the 40-story megatower at 1 North 4th Place in Williamsburg (formerly the third Northside Piers tower). Designed by FXFOWLE Architects, the 510-unit development has studios priced from $2,200 to $3,250 a month, one-bedrooms from $2,800 to $3,700, and two-bedrooms from $4,200 to $5,800, according to Curbed. Three-bedrooms range from “the high $5,000s” to $8,500 a month.
Besides stereotypically Williamsburg marketing photos, such as a heavily tattooed man holding a baby, the teaser site also shows renderings of a corner apartment with views of the Manhattan skyline, an indoor lounge with a library, and an outdoor pool. The building was originally supposed to be the third Northside Piers tower, until the Toll Brothers left the project. Douglaston Development, RD Management and L&M Development Partners broke ground on the 434,000-square-foot luxury building two years ago.

The outside of the 41-story tower rising at 1 North 4th Place on the Williamsburg waterfront looks all done. The rental building from Douglaston Development will have 510 units across 434,000 square feet, according to building permits. Designed by FX Fowle Architects, the glassy behemoth will have a mix of studios, one-, two- and three-bedrooms, Douglaston’s website notes. It will also include parking for 80 cars, a large terrace overlooking the river, and “extensive fitness and recreational amenities.” The developer also claims the building will be “the first highrise rental project on the Williamsburg waterfront.”
The building is close to the two Northside Piers towers and The Edge. Originally it was third Northside Piers tower until Toll Brothers exited the project.
Construction is supposed to wrap next summer. The tower pretty closely matches the construction rendering, pictured after the jump.
