The Dutch-inspired, Chinese-owned, long-in-the-works luxury development at 429 Kent Avenue, aka the Oosten, is far from the only new project rising in South Williamsburg. The neighborhood, generally considered to be south of Grand Street, is seeing something of a development boom. Several new residential buildings have opened in the last few years, and many more are on the way.

Construction is well underway, but the a Stop Work Order currently exists on the property.
