Construction and excavation is now underway on Spitzer Enterprises’ trifecta of towers along the South Williamsburg waterfront. Set to rise from a three-acre parcel at 416-430 Kent Avenue, between Broadway and South 9th Street, the development is graced with nearly 400 feet of prized East River frontage. Approved permits filed with the Department of Buildings detail that the plan will comprise 857 rental apartments within three 22-story towers. A publicly accessible park and esplanade will run along the shoreline and connect to the the existing esplanade of the Schaefer Landing development to the south.
The relatively young firm of ODA Architects is handling the design, which features many of their volume-popping elements to which we’ve grown accustomed. Firm founder Eran Chen told the Times that their design is a “molded iceberg, sculpted to create the maximum number of views and outdoor spaces.” And as can be seen from the construction photos below, units will have stellar views of the Downtown and Midtown skylines and the East River bridges. The 253-foot-tall buildings will feature rooftop pools and terraces, on-site parking, bicycle storage, fitness centers, and lounge and recreation rooms. Twenty percent of units will be reserved for low-income households.
Leaving his political career in the past, former New York governor Eliot Spitzer is taking on the development world. After his father’s death in November, the controversial politician took over the family’s real estate business, Spitzer Enterprises. And he’s now revealed the first rendering for his Williamsburg mega-development in the New York Times (not Twitter), showcasing a trio of 24-story rental towers designed by ODA Architects. Located at 420-430 Kent Avenue in South Williamsburg, the project is in keeping with ODA’s signature boxy, glassy aesthetic. It will cost $700 million, have 856 units, and boast two rooftop pools and a park with an esplanade.
