Via 420 Kent
A residential tower found along the Williamsburg waterfront as part of a collection of three-Lego-like high rises known as 420 Kent, has 65 mixed-income housing units up for grabs. Designed by ODA-Architects, these elegant, smoky-glass facade, offset box buildings jet out in different directions and contain a whopping 857 apartments. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 40, 60 and 130 percent of the area median income can apply for the units at 416 Kent ranging from $565/month studios to $2,733/month two-bedrooms.
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.
Developed by Spitzer Enterprises, there will be 20,000 square feet of retail space, over 25,000 square feet of indoor amenities, and 80,000 square feet of outdoor space, including a 400-foot-long waterfront esplanade and an outdoor pool.
Additional amenities include a gym, lounge, on-site laundry and concierge service. Nearest transit options include the J, M, Z trains as well as the B62 and B67.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at 416 Kent Avenue until August 13, 2018. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
