Permits Filed for First Domino Tower, to Rise 400 Feet

New, 23 comments

More permits have been filed for Two Trees' Domino megaproject. While the permits, spotted by New York YIMBY, have the address of 320 Kent Avenue—the tallest tower in the renderings—don't get too excited. According to YIMBY, via a note from Two Trees, the permits "have nothing to do with order of actual groundbreaking or construction" and are for infrastructure on all of the waterfront sites. Nevertheless, they provide some details about the future tower, which will be designed by SHoP Architects with Ismael Leyva as the architect of record. It will rise 36 stories and 401 feet, and it will hold 392 apartments, with commercial and retail space on the first and second floors.

The size, use, and design of the buildings are tightly controlled by the rezoning that just passed, but the permits will likely be amended when construction financing is finalized for each site.

While the original renderings produced by SHoP make 320 Kent look like it will be the tallest tower, that may not be the case. The rezoning allows for buildings up to 55-stories tall, so something even larger may be in the site's future.
