ODA used two standard floor plans and mirrored them around a central axis to create three distinct towers featuring multi-dimensional façades. Eighty percent of the apartments will be corner units because of this unique, boxy design.

Residents will enjoy views of the Williamsburg Bridge to the north, the East River, and eastern vistas of downtown Manhattan. Kent’s promenade will add to the communal boardwalk stretching from Greenpoint all the way to Dumbo.
